First Meeting of the Year!

MOPS_tomorrowIf you’ve noticed the leaves are starting to change and Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks, then you know that MOPS is just about to start! We are so excited to begin a fresh new year at Northgate MOPS at Night, and we’ll kick off the 2015-2016 year tomorrow night, Tuesday September 22 at 6:30pm.

We invite all moms with little ones from pregnancy to kindergarten. We have yummy food, great speakers and lots of time for relaxation and conversation. The best part- every meeting we provide FREE CHILDCARE for your little ones. So come, eat, and spend two hours twice a month recharging your mommy battery!

This year’s MOPS International theme is a Fierce Flourishing, an invitation to Notice Goodness, Celebrate Lavishly and Embrace Rest. We’ll spend the year focusing on those elements of theme at our meetings on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. We meet at Northgate Free Methodist Church’s South Campus located at 350 Bank Street Road in Batavia.
