Spirit Night at Newk’s Eatery

blog_newksspiritnight

Did you know MOPS of Newnan is a not-for-profit organization who cares for mamas throughout Newnan? Momming is as hard as it is rewarding; so here, we gather moms with children (age 0-kindergarten) to share in hardships and triumphs.

We are proud to bring family resources to our moms, as well as a few child-free hours each month at meetings where we serve coffee and breakfast. There are many ways to support MOPS of Newnan, including providing coffee or breakfast, running an ad here on our website or doing everyday activities like taking your family out for dinner to one of our spirit nights throughout the year!

Tonight from 5-8pm, you can feed your family and support our organization by meeting us at Newk’s Eatery for dinner. A portion of every purchase will come back to us, allowing us to reach one more mom who needs our support! Shout out you’re support by clicking our event or checking in to Newk’s Eatery tonight.

Parenting

I am thrilled about what we have planned today. I mean, I think two meetings is plenty of time to get to know each other and it’s time to get deep. Are you in?

We have two guest speakers to talk to us about Parenting. Lauren Collins RN, BSN is from Moms On Call, and, mamas, when she told me what was on her heart, I got goose bumps. I cannot wait to hear what she has for us today. I’m pretty sure God was speaking to her and she was listening.

Next up is Susan Goodroe, M.Ed. with the Ferst Foundation, a childhood literacy program in Georgia, now known as Ferst Readers. And if you aren’t familiar with Ferst Readers, it’s a program that sends every child up to the age of 5 a free book each month. Wow! Where do I sign up? Well, Susan is going to tell us.

So, mamas, will I see you this morning? I sure hope you’ll be there with hearts open.

Moms’ Night Out with Mentors

LadiesNightOut_101118

Mamas, it has been since July that we hosted a Moms’ Night Out, so we are so happy to share that First Baptist Church of Newnan has planned one for us!

Join us on October 11th from 7-9 pm for Coffee and Cookies at The Warehouse | First Baptist Church Newnan. Our Moms’ Nights Out are best when First Baptist Church of Newnan hosts, so you don’t want to miss! Not only will it be a time for us to mingle with each other, but a chance to meet mentors – moms who have gone before us – who want to serve us in this season.

No matter if you are in the middle of a storm or stepping out into sunshine, we want you to join us. Your story matters to us and the mom next to you; we need you to open up and share your story and your heart, just as it feels today!

We’ve been asked to register for this event (by October 4th), so our gracious hosts can properly prepare. So click here to register now!!

*Please note, childcare is not provided for this event.

Moms’ Night Out

Blog_MomsNightOut

YOU ARE INVITED

What? MNO. A moms’ night out. You might need one of these if your heels are dusty, you’ve been looking for a reason to wash your hair, you haven’t worn pants with buttons in a while, your TV is constantly on Nickelodeon, you can’t recall the last time you ate somewhere that didn’t have a kids menu, you feel slightly confused when you’re alone, your mascara is expired, you have to Google “MNO”, you consider a trip to the park a wild outing, your solo trips to the store feel like a vacation, you’re wearing the same outfit in every Instagram, you’re the last to know… well everything!

Who? M.O.P.S. (Mothers of Preschoolers. In other words, you qualify, if you have a kiddo age zero to kindergarten.)

When? Thursday, June 28th at 7 pm

Where? Mama Lucia’s (236 Newnan Crossing Bypass, Newnan, GA 30263)

Will you join us? R.S.V.P. before June 27th to mopsofnewnan@yahoo.com

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.

Giveaway_EarlyRegistration

Last, did you know that MOPS International gives back to MOPS of Newnan? That’s right. We are currently eligible to receive 1 FREE Membership for every 7 membership registrations, but this ends on June 30th. And because of this, we are extending a challenge to you.
