MOPS @ East Pointe
MOPS International exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ. At MOPS we provide a friendly and fun place for mothers to relax, encourage and learn from one another. This is an often challenging, yet rewarding time in the life of a mom. MOPS is here to provide an outlet for your stories, questions, and wisdom.
Never let the fire go out ... When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God’s people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes. - Romans 12:11-13 (NIrV 1998)
Fire is a tool utilized only by human beings. Since the beginning of time, humans have congregated around its warmth for light, protection and company. Every other creature on the planet fears fire, but we’ve been given the unique ability to harness it, to use its power to improve our lives. Not only that, but poets and artists have used fire to describe the God-given spark that wakes us up in the morning and fuels our purpose and passion. Whatever the context, fire is not to be ignored. Sisters, this is a year we will tend the fire in our hearts. We will stop inhaling the fumes of our mistakes that tell us we are not enough, not a good enough mom, not pretty enough, not brave enough, not smart enough, not wealthy enough. Instead, we will choose to tend our God-given fire. We will love our children with an all-consuming love and use our words to warm the world. We will hold the torch up high and shed light on what matters most. When our homes feel cold, we’ll light a fire. When a friend has lost her spark, we’ll fan her flame. When the world seems dark, we will be an ember of hope.
The East Pointe Church chapter of MOPS meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday Morning of every month from September to May. We also provide a special Monday Night Meeting for working Moms.
Monday - 6:30 - 8:00 pm and dues are $5 a meeting but no childcare provided.
Tuesday Meetings run from 9:30 a.m. until noon. Registration and check-in for MOPS KIDS begins at 9:15 a.m.
We meet in the Fellowship Center of East Pointe Church, 270 N. Kernan Blvd. Jacksonville, FL 32225.
MOPS meetings require dues for a couple of reasons, most importantly is the coverage of childcare through our skilled MOPS KIDS workers. Our membership dues are paid per semester ($70) or annually ($130). Paying of dues will reserve your child/children a spot in an age appropriate childcare room. Please check out your first meeting on us! Dues are not collected until your second meeting!
You love to play (and so do your kids), so MOPS play dates are a win-win! We have a play date scheduled the 3rd Tuesday of every month, year round!! So, even when we break for the summer, play dates live on. Join us for a fun time with friends and kids!
