Got friends? Got 3 AM friends?!

Hi there!  It is almost time for MOPS again!  We hope you enjoyed our kick-off meeting and are planning to come back to join us this Friday at 9:30! This week we will be discussing the topic of friendship, something that is near and dear to all mamas’ hearts! We will have breakfast and coffee (with more seating, so bring a friend!), a fun game then spend some time digging in to the topic of the day.  If you have any questions, please email mopsofnewnan@yahoo.com.

We will also begin collecting canned goods for our service project at this meeting.  Bring anything canned that you’d like to donate to our pantry of the month.  This month’s contributions will go to the Alpha Omega Mission Center, a community outreach ministry of First Baptist Church. The center is in great need of all canned goods or non-perishable food items.  We will have a white laundry basket to the left of the welcome table for you to drop your donations into.  And don’t worry if you forget or aren’t able to contribute this week; we’ll also be collecting for the same pantry on 9/29.

YOU can make a difference

How can I help?  This is a question many of us are asking after the recent devastating storms that have hit the southern U.S.  We mamas may not be able to put our boots on the ground in the midst of the devastation (especially with a little one attached to us!), but here are a few organizations you might consider supporting who can be a powerful presence in the storms’ aftermath.  *Please note, MOPS of Newnan is not affiliated with any of these organizations and is not promoting one over another.  These are simply options to help take some of the guess work out of where and how to help.  The article linked here has a list of 40 reputable agencies that have been vetted by the Charity Navigator organization.
