We are so excited! Our first MOPS Meeting for the 2014-2015 year is coming up quick. The Leadership team has been busy getting up to speed, organized and ready for the first meeting on August 28th.
We know there are many who have subscribed to this email in the past that are no longer with us. We thank you in advance for praying for our group and keeping updated with all we have going on. For those of you who like to know what to pray for, here’s a list:
Health and wellness for the moms. We would like to think we are immune to issues with health, but we are not. Pray specifically for those who have been ill and are still returning to 100%. We also need protection from further health issues, including ones with our kids.
Cohesion. We would love to blend well as a leadership team and become this singular unit when it comes to MOPS. But we also know that issues arise and we want to be as the most cohesive and prayed for team. We can only prepare so much, so even when a speaker is a no show, or a craft idea is a flop, or brunch items are sparse – we can react and act quickly as a team to figure it out.
For the moms coming to the group. We always have new moms come to the group. And we usually have quite a few returning moms. Pray that we as a whole can be warm, welcoming and intentional about our conversations we have with these moms. It’s not just a coincidence that they are attending MOPS group at First Free. Every mom is showing bravery in coming to MOPS, and we intend to celebrate that this year.
Commitment. The leadership knows and acknowledges the time line for commitment, and most of the moms make an effort to attend the meetings. Pray that there would be little hindrance in the moms attending this year.
