MOPS (Moms Of Preschoolers)
Join other mothers who desire friendship, community, support and growth. Fall MOPs meets September to May. Meetings will be twice monthly on Thursday mornings (a new day) along with mother & child play dates, and moms’ night out events. Contact Amy Bender at firstname.lastname@example.org to register for MOPs or learn more.
MOPs is also recruiting mentor moms so please prayerfully consider how you can support mothers of preschoolers in our church community! A mentor mom is someone who has been through the early stages of parenting and who can walk beside MOPS moms.

MOB – Methodists On Bikes
May to October 2nd & 4th Wednesdays and 1st & 3rd Saturdays each month
All adults are invited to join this recreational bike riding group. The MOB will ride on the first and third Saturdays (15-20 miles at about a 15 mph pace) and the second and fourth Wednesdays (10-12 miles at a slower pace). Our Wednesday rides will always commence at the church parking lot at 6:30 PM. Saturday morning rides will start at 8:00 AM at a designated location.
All rides need a Ride Leader, and MOB members take turns assuming this obligation. We must be careful not to rely on the same people to lead our rides, so please consider it your responsibility to volunteer to lead a ride If we do not have a Ride Leader, the ride will be cancelled. If a ride needs to be cancelled due to weather conditions, notification will be sent an hour prior to starting. Cancelled rides will not be rescheduled. Contact email@example.com with questions.
