Thank you to all who participated in our annual Trunk-or-Treat!  The kids received lots of candy and a special thank you to Lisa England for putting together special treat bags to hand out to the kids.  The kids chose their favorites and the winner of this year’s Trunk-or-Treat went to the Star Wars trunk who received a $20 gift card to Firehouse Subs.  Our second place winner was the “Fun In The Sun” beach trunk who received a $10 gift card to Panera.   Enjoy the pictures and hope to see you next year!

September 19th Meeting Notes

Joshua 1.9 printable

Our second meeting of the year was just as exciting as the first.  We introduced our mentor mom, Cathy, to the group and  Jennifer R. opened the meeting in prayer and by giving a devotional on being strong and courageous.  If you would like to read her devotional, please click on the link at the top of the page.  Our theme verse for this week was Joshua 1:9. “Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged.  For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

We introduced our BRAVE STORY meeting element and invited everyone to sign up to share their BRAVE STORY with the group at one of our meetings throughout the year.  The idea behind the BRAVE STORY is that each and every one of our stories matter and that God wants us to share them with others.  It helps all of us to gain perspective on this life He has gifted us.  Amanda was our first BRAVE STORY teller to share her personal BRAVE STORY.  Amanda’s stories came from throughout different phases of her life and were touching.  Thank you Amanda for being brave and allowing us to get to know you better and for giving us the gift of your beautiful, brave story.

Our challenge this week was a two point, two part challenge.  First, was to accept the invitation to share your story and sign up to do so at one of the meetings this year.  Second, was to share your story with someone outside of MOPS.

After enjoying a wonderful breakfast provided by our first food group, ‘Bravely Being’ , we delved headlong into a simple, fun craft that will hopefully offer inspiration and encouragement throughout the year.  We completed a decorative clipboard that can be hung on the wall and used to easily hold and change out different printables.    I found the idea through pinterest at http://www.unexpectedelegance.com/2014/06/09/diy-clipboard/#_a5y_p=1778135.  Everyone was given the printable to place on their clipboard for the week.  *Check back often, as I will try and post a printable that you can print and hang to go along with the theme of every meeting throughout the year.*

Our time came to end very quickly again and we closed our meeting in circle time with praise and prayers.

 

Upcoming Events:

Our next meeting is Friday, October 3rd at the Grand Blanc United Methodist Church in Grand Blanc from 9am – 11am.

 

Reminders:

*Fall semester dues of $45 ($35 if you participated in the Mom2Mom Sale) are due at our next meeting, September 19th.

Please turn into Jennifer at the beginning of the next meeting (Amanda will be gone to MomCon- hope your having lots of fun Amanda!)

*If you have not had your picture taken, please come camera ready, as Jennifer R. (that’s me!) will be taking everyone’s photo for the photo directory.

*Don’t forget to complete this week’s challenge!*

First Meeting Notes

Be You bravely printable with theme verse

Our first meeting, on September 5th, was an exciting way to start the new year!   It was wonderful to see new and familiar faces alike!  We started the meeting off with our theme verse (Isaiah 43:18-19), devotional and opening prayer given by my co-coordinator, Angela C. and then enjoyed a wonderful breakfast together.   I was a little busy running around with last minute details, but it was great to see everyone together enjoying a meal, getting acquainted and catching up.

After breakfast, we went over the information handed out in the folder, completed a survey on availability for Mom’s Night Outs and playdates, touched on some updated policies (please no soliciting; cancellation policy for MNO’s and playdates; you cook, we clean; and the chore arrows), and talked about the theme  (Be You, Bravely) and the exciting adventures that leadership has planned for the year.    One of those adventures will be challenges that we issue at each meeting.  The challenge issued this meeting was to read the chapter titled “Tell Your Story” in the book we each received from MOPS International.  Remember,  if you completed the challenge,  be sure to write your name on a post it when you come in at the next meeting and place it on our challenge board so we can track your challenge points.  We will be giving away small gifts at intermittent intervals to those with the most points!

We then completed an icebreaker to help us to get to know one another better.  We each individually completed questions and filled out the answers on our papers and then had to seek out another person to complete the second section, which related back to the answer given.  For example:  What is an adventure that you have been on?    Find someone who has never been and would like to go.

Our time flew by and unfortunately the meeting had to come to a close.  We did so in circle time, praise (for a great surprise!), and prayer.  I am excited about the new year and what God has in store for each and every one of us, individually and collectively.  This year is going to be my bravest yet and I hope it is yours too!

Upcoming Events:

Our next meeting is Friday, September 19th at the Grand Blanc United Methodist Church in Grand Blanc from 9am – 11am.

MNO – Firepit Party at Jennifer Reynolds’ home, Wednesday September 25th from 8pm-10pm (ish)

Our makeup date if the weather is not cooperative will be Thursday, September 26th

Be You, Bravely!

Welcome to the 2014-15 MOPS year!  We are less than one week away from our first meeting, and I am SO excited!  This year’s theme, ‘Be You, Bravely’,  has had me and the rest of the leadership team feeling inspired all summer! This year’s theme is about so much more than just the surface stuff.  It’s deep, it’s meaningful, and I hope we get to fully share in it’s true meaning this year together.   Here’s a great video to introduce you further to “Being You, Bravely”:
