May 5 & 6 – Banquet and RACE for the Orphans

starryeyednewsletter

The last events for this MOPS year are coming up this weekend! First up is the MOPS & POPS Banquet on Friday, May 5, 6-8 pm. If you still need tickets, please contact your table leader ASAP! Childcare drop-off begins at 5:45. Only the adults are being fed a meal, so you’ll need to feed your children before you come. Dress is casual to go with our theme, Camping Under the Stars!

2017 Banquet Invitation

The next morning, Saturday, May 6, is the RACE for the Orphans. This is the culminating event for the service project we’ve been supporting all year. The deadline to register is Thursday, May 4, and you can complete it all online at this link. If you made a MOPS of Newnan shirt at the last meeting, remember to wear it on Saturday!

We’ll take the rest of May off, and then summer activities will begin in June (more to come on that, soon). Regular meetings will resume in September with the new theme, Free Indeed!

April 21 – RACE, Swap, and Testimony

starryeyednewsletter

Hey there Starry Eyed Sisters! It’s our last regular meeting of the year, and it’s jam packed with MOPSy goodness! First up, we’ll be decorating shirts for us to wear to the RACE for the Orphans (or any other time, too). You provide the white shirt and MOPS will provide the paint and stencils. We’ll also have our spring swap, so bring in all of those items you’ve been wanting to leave your house, and take some new treasures home! Last, we’ll hear testimonies from some of our mamas about how MOPS has made a difference in their lives. You may have to crack open that tiny pack of tissues that sits on your table.

2017 Banquet Invitation

The MOPS banquet is our last hoorah for the year and will be held Friday, May 5. This is an evening event that requires a ticket to cover the cost of your meal. Many ladies bring their husbands to enjoy the night, and just as many come solo. There will be childcare during the banquet, so this will be a fun night out! Some of the things we have planned are a photo booth, mixer games, and a s’mores station.

But wait, there’s more! During the summer you won’t even have time to miss MOPS, because there’s a Bible study and MOPS play dates to attend! Our summer activities are open to the community, which means we’d love for you to bring a friend. There will be lots of information about summer activities on your table this week, so grab a flyer to stick on your fridge.

Reminders:

  • Our last fundraiser is a Partner’s Pizza Night this Tuesday, April 18, from 4-8:30 PM. Please encourage your friends and family to dine in or pick up and MOPS will receive a percentage of the profits. This fundraiser will help cover our end of year expenses.

  • Brunch is being provided by the Moon Silver and Big Dipper Light Blue tables.

  • Bring a WHITE shirt to paint.

  • Bring your stuff to SWAP!

  • Banquet tickets will be on sale this Friday and are $10 per person.

Looking Ahead:

  • Banquet is Friday, May 5, from 6-8 PM at First Baptist. Tickets are $10 per person.

  • RACE for the Orphans is Saturday, May 6!

  • Summer activities start in June!

February 3 -Intimacy

starryeyednewsletter

Bonjour, Sassy Sweethearts! In January we focused on self-care with spa treatments and a speaker about mental health. In February we’ll turn to another topic: intimacy. That’s right, we’re talking about S-E-X! Oh my! This can be a sensitive topic, so we’ve got a thought provoking video segment from MOPS International, then we’ll enjoy discussion in a safe environment. We’ll also have a craft to round out our time together.

Reminders:

  • Brunch is being provided by the Milky Way Navy and Moon Silver tables.

  • It’s time to restock the Moppets pantry! If you didn’t bring a snack to our last meeting, please bring a peanut-free snack to share, such as Cheerios, animal crackers, etc. You can hand it to one of the leadership ladies upstairs at drop-off.

  • Keep collecting change in your RACE for the Orphans jar. Our challenge is to reach the $250 level of sponsorship by the February 17 meeting, and we need about $150!

  • Speaking of the RACE, it’s coming up on Saturday, May 6! You can register at the RACE for the Orphans website
