Crosslake Area MOPS to kick off new year Sept. 24

Crosslake Area Mothers of Preschoolers, or MOPS, will kick off another year Tuesday, Sept. 24.

The group, which meets from 9-11:15 a.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month throughout the school year at the Crosslake Log Church, is for mothers whose children range from newborn through kindergarten.

Mothering preschoolers is at times a lonely challenge. Crosslake Area MOPS provides a welcome break for moms, a chance for moms to make new friends and an opportunity for moms to know they are not alone in the struggles and joys of raising young children.

Meetings include fellowship, brunch, speakers, small group discussions and crafts. Childcare is provided.

This year’s theme, “A Beautiful Mess,” reminds moms that beauty can arise from our most difficult situations. The group encourages moms to embrace their stories. Every mom is welcomed, accepted and inspired to reach her potential and recognize her influence within her family and her world. Better moms make a better world.
