A NEW SEASON

MOPS of Newnan - New Season

I’m sitting on my patio with shade from the trees and umbrella watching my almost five year old play in the lake. I don’t know where the time has gone or how I’ve come to this day where it’s time to tell you about our new year.

Reflecting on my years at MOPS of Newnan, I can’t help but share how blessed I have been. Honestly when I discovered MOPS, I was a mom who had lost her identity. I struggled with a sense of fashion, leaving the house, socializing my boy and especially making new friends. I was a mess!

I wouldn’t exactly call myself fashionable today, but I do feel that I have found myself again. The confidence to accept a leadership role here has helped redevelop the strong woman I once was before motherhood. In the past year, I have helped coordinate MOPS of Newnan’s Summer Bible Study and the 2018-19 MOPS season. I have survived the first year of my son’s education – life changes BIG when they start school. And I’ve managed my time wisely enough to fit in freelance web development allowing me to contribute to my family’s finances again.

I’m not sharing these things in search of recognition, but to help you find yourself in my story.  I want you accept where you are today, make choices to advance your tomorrow and find confidence in the best future you can imagine!

Now, that we are entering the last year Kala Arrington and I will lead MOPS of Newnan as Coordinators, we want to introduce you to the newest leadership team that will make it all happen this coming year. Are you ready?

New Membership Fees

Blog_Membership

Our membership fees have been updated and even though it’s only a small difference, you deserve an explanation.

For a long time, MOPS of Newnan has only charged $80 for local fees, keeping our total fee at $99. Last year, however, MOPS International Fees were inflated, and they offered multi-year memberships. In order to provide each mom with the option to choose a multi-year membership, MOPS of Newnan accepted local membership dues, only. Each mom was then responsible for registering with MOPS International, which is not optional but hard to enforce.

 

“MOPS International Fees provide more than just an awesome membership kit, but the membership kit is not the greatest benefit your dues provide. MOPS International uses monies from membership fees to support MOPS groups around the world for moms who would otherwise have little to no support in their communities and who may have no other way to experience the love of Jesus.”

 

So what has changed? First, multi-year memberships are no longer available with MOPS International. Second, our cost has increased. But third, our leadership team has grown, and as a result, we are going to take the pressure off you by registering you with MOPS International.

What is the fee, you ask? MOPS International dues are $31.95 and local dues are $83.05, rounding us up to an easy total of $115.00.

We trust that our current members understand and respect this very little change to our total fee. Please direct any and all questions to your Co-Coordinators, Tiffanie Teel or Kala Arrington.
