“Undaunted” by Christine Caine
Christine Caine offers life-transforming insights about how not only to overcome the challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances we all experience, but also to actually grow from those experiences and be equipped and empowered to help others.

Using her own dramatic life story, Caine shows how God rescued her from a life where she was unnamed, unwanted, and unqualified. She tells how she overcame abuse, abandonment, fears, and other challenges to go on a mission of adventure, fueled by faith and filled with love and courage.

Christine’s personal stories inspire readers to hear their named called, just as Christine heard her own- “You are beloved. You are the hope. You are chose.” – to go into a dark and troubled world, knowing each of us possess all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ. Part inspiration tale, part manifesto to stir readers to lives of adventure. Undaunted shows the way with spiritual wisdom and insight.

Women’s Community Groups

We also have groups that meet in our surrounding communities. Groups are launched at Connection Events in the Fall, Winter & Spring. Can’t wait for the next one? Contact Us!

 

MOTHER’S OF PRESCHOOLERS

We welcome moms of preschool children (pregnancy-through Kindergarten)…urban, suburban and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms… all moms who share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be!

“But forget all that–it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19 (New Living Translation)

At any given moment in our lives each of us has conversations we’ve been putting off, reasonable risks we’ve been avoiding, or goals we want to achieve. Yet often times the more significant an action feels the easier it is to put it off. We get distracted from the big decisions by the immediate needs of the day. What all of us seem to have in common is that we need a nudge, a nudge to help us get out of our ruts and routines so that we can begin risking bravely.

At MOPS we believe that you were meant to live deeply and so we have created this year’s theme to inspire you to choose the extraordinary. Be you, Bravely is designed to help us focus on making the choices that could create the most good in our lives, help us to step into healthy risk and to do it in the context of community where we can cheer one another on.

Sometimes, good people wait patiently for God to intervene when what He is wanting is for us to act bravely and do something. Being a follower of Jesus calls for courage. The journey feels unexpected and unconventional. It requires bravely playing hide and seek in the dark, confronting the fears that scare us and holding the hand of a Redeemer-Guide who calls us to courageous acts of risk and trust. It means coloring outside of the lines. Dreaming bigger than we ever have before and getting swept up into the plans of a God who leaves us breathless with wonder.

It takes courage to ask brave questions and even more courage to search for the answers. We are so excited to journey alongside you this year as we ask one another what it means to “Be you, Bravely”.

HOMESCHOOL CONNECTION

Looking for a place to connect with other home school families?
Whether you’re new to homeschooling, thinking of homeschooling or a seasoned veteran, this is the place for you!  One of our main goals is to build authentic relationships with one another as we journey down the home school path. So, join us as we meet for monthly educational/social outings and get to know each other along the way.

Events – Our monthly trips are on the second Wednesday of the month September – May. On occasion we may need to schedule a trip on a different date. Please be sure to note the date listed. This schedule may change on occasion. Check back often for the most up-to-date information.

GRACE FULL QUILTS

We offer comfort to those in need by gifting them with a hand crafted quilt. Our purpose is to enjoy community as we quilt together, pray over each of our projects and encourage each other to grow stronger in our faith.

Do you have scraps of leftover fabric stuffed in drawers, spilling out of boxes, or tucked in your sewing box? Now you can give them a second life while helping others. Some of our quilts have been gifted to our missionaries, Katrina victims, service men overseas and duffel bag projects for children in Foster Care.

Novices and experts are welcomed. Even non-sewers are welcome to learn as they go! We also need volunteers to keep track of inventory, take pictures, cut, iron, deliver quilts, and pray.

KNITTY CHICKS

Interested in knitting or crocheting? We have donated yarn and outreach projects so you can knit or crochet to your heart’s content without damaging your budget. We currently are making preemie hats, booties, blankets, and issolet covers for Hutzel Hospital, as well as mittens for City Mission, decorative scarves for the duffel bag project, and 8” squares for afghans going to Africa.

We pray for others as we make our projects and attach Bible verses to each item made. If you want to use your gifts to gift others in need, this may be the group for you. It’s hard to believe that doing outreach work can be so much fun. Women of all ages and all skill levels welcome. Join us on new projects or even bring your own.

 

GRACEFULL QUILTS and KNITTY CHICKS meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, 7-9p. There is no fee for these classes (childcare is not available).
