MOPS 2019-2020

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and have it to the full. – John 10:10 (NIV)

What is MOPS?
Are you a mom who could use a little break and a chance to get refreshed and renewed? Do you long for adult conversation and a delicious meal that you can enjoy while it’s still warm? If you answered yes to either of these questions we invite you to visit MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) at Santa Cruz Bible Church!

MOPS International offers mothers of young children a place to find friendship with other moms in a supportive and loving environment. MOPS is not a bible study. Instead, our ministry focuses on relationships and communicating the love of Jesus Christ.

2019-2020 MOPS Theme – “TO THE FULL”
We’ll say farewell to autopilot and regain our vitality. We’ll have more fun, get to know new people, fear less about what could go wrong or what others think. We will enjoy our kids like never before, and someday, when they wonder what life to the full looks like, they will look no farther than how mom does it.

But here’s one important thing to remember: this idea of life to the full isn’t about striving for more. It’s not about striving at all. It is about recognizing that life isn’t a bunch of goals to achieve, or people to please; but an invitation to savor, delight and enjoy your life just a little more. If you have ever felt like you aren’t enough, if you have forgotten to have fun or feel like you have lost your spark, then this is the fresh start you have been waiting for.

In order to live To the Full this year, we will:

Have More Fun

Fear Less
