Mothers of Pre-Schoolers (MOPS)
You are invited to join us! Mothers of Preschoolers offers friendship, support, mom-focused topic discussions, activities and quality childcare. Enjoy a morning to recharge yourself with breakfast, hot coffee, a creative activity or game, guest speakers, and conversation with other moms. Your children will have fun in the MOPPETS program while you have some adult time. Monthly outings and other special events are also planned for throughout the year.

Starry Eyed

Welcome to Calvary Baptist MOPS 2016 - 2017
Our international theme is We Are the Starry Eyed.


Thus says the Lord who made the Earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it... Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
- Jeremiah 33:2-3


Sometimes we think we have to pick one, when in reality it is always both. Light and dark, hope and fear, kindness and risk, wonder and mundane.

Starry Eyed means looking for the light even when darkness is enveloping. It is an opportunity to hope recklessly and to witness God's presence guiding things seen and unseen, comfortable and uncomfortable.

When we reflect back over our lives, this year is going to stand out. It will be the year that we decided to live fully by both sunlight and moonlight. Because audacity is rising in the deepest and wildest parts of our souls. And the best part is, we will experience it all together.

So the question becomes,
When was the last time you felt fully alive?
The last time you were so swept up with wonder that it took your breath away?
That kindness made you feel powerful?
Or audacious hope unraveled fear?
This is the year to experience all of it.

Meetings are held at Calvary the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month 9:15 am to 11:15 am (September - May), starting September 20th, 2016. Check-in starts at 9 am.
