What is MOPS?
MOPS, which stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, is an international interdenominational Christian organization that exists to encourage, equip, and help women with young children – from birth through kindergarten – to become the best moms they can be. MOPS exists for every mom – urban, suburban, and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single, and married moms – moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be!
2012-2013 MOPS Theme
MOPS International’s theme for 2012-2013 is:
Take The Plunge. The emphasis is on relationships and hope. MOPS communicates a message of hope and creates an atmosphere of supportive relationships that moms need to survive a world of constant change. Taking the plunge in relationships is being authentic and going deeper. In a MOPS group, relationships offer hope to moms, especially as moms go deeper and take risks to create authentic community. All facets of relationships can be strengthened through taking risks, going deeper and showing authentic love – neighborhood, friendships, marriages, extended families, the world around us and ultimately relationship with God. Throughout the year, groups can focus content on these different types of relationships and equip moms to be relationally healthy and thriving.
The spiritual foundation of the theme is 1 Peter 4:8-11 (The Message):
“Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless—cheerfully. Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help. That way, God’s bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he’ll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything—encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!”
