May 13th Newsletter

This Week's Speaker:

Kristen Armstrong Video
This is our last week of MOPS for the 2013/14 year!  We found a short video to use in place of a speaker to increase the time for discussion and wrap up with your tables.  

This Week's Reminders:

  • Robbinsdale Women's Center:  This week we will be collecting monetary donations for the RWC Walk for Life.  This money goes to raise funds to reach women in crisis pregnancy situations.  Any amount would be a blessing!
  • Steering Team Positions:  Our MOPS Steering team still has some positions open for the 2014/15 MOPS Year.  Hospitality (both for meetings and events), discussion group leaders and finance coordinator positions are still needing to be filled.  If you feel this is a way in which you would like to serve, please contact Kelly at or Jen at    
  • Registration is now open for our MOPS 2014/15 year.  In the past we have filled our seats fairly quickly and have maintained a waiting list throughout the year.  If you are interested in joining us again next year either see Meg or download the form available on the previous blog entry labeled: Registration for MOPS 2014/15

This Week's MOPPETS:

Hi, Moms! It’s been a wonderful year! We love your children; they are God’s very special creations. Thank you for sharing them with us so that we can pack them full of His holy Word. This week we will be continuing to work on our counting…

BOZ TREEHOUSE TIME! ‘A Carnival of Counting’

BOZ Buzz! Counting God’s blessings is the next theme for BOZ Treehouse Time! at MOPPETS. To introduce this topic, please look for ways to practice counting (spoons at the dinner table, hangers in the closet, toys to clean up!) with your child.

  • Memory Verse: God gives me many good things. (from 2 Corinthians 9:15)
  • Concept in Action: I can count!
  • Snack: Goldfish
  • Craft: Crowns

Visit for more information about our curriculum. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

God is so good! Have a wonderful summer!

  • Summer playdate:  This summer we are doing things a bit different than past years.  We are encouraging tables to set up their own playdates, but MOPS is only setting up one formal playdate.  July 29th we will be having a potluck here at Maple Grove Evangelical Free Church from 1030a-1230p with lunch at 11 am.  So bring a dish to pass.  We will be outdoors unless it rains.  
  • Vacation Bible School:  This year MGEFC is having a VBS July 21-24 for children ages 3 years- 6th grade.  If you are interested in having your child in this program, check out the church website at (no information is currently available as it is a ways out yet, but keep checking!  It should be up soon!)
