Make sure to check your email regarding information on this year’s plant sale. Just a reminder, we’ll be giving away two gift cards – one for the highest number of plants sold and the other for the most money raised. Orders and money are due at the MOPS meeting, Wednesday, April 15th. Checks can be made out to Bethany Lutheran MOPS. Plant Sale pick-up for MOPS members (and for the orders you collected) Saturday, May 9th at the South entrance of Bethany from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. Plant sale is Sunday, May 10th.
We welcome the sunshine of Spring, and welcome YOU to join us for our annual spring tea! Celebrate a great year of MOPS in your spring finest with a catered breakfast and our Bethany alumnae, friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers and any other special women in your life you’d like to invite. We are honored to have accomplished singer, songwriter and author Danny Oertli as our speaker, (http://dannyoertli.com).
Please inform us of your total number of adults & any children not normally enrolled in MOPPETS by 4/30. A $7 donation per (guest) child is appreciated. Questions? Please email: JackieLDavis@gmail.com. Hope to see you there!
For every new Mom you bring in to check out a MOPS meeting in October, you receive one entry into a drawing for free spring semester dues! So be you bravely and invite a Mom who could use some new friends, a hot breakfast and some time to sit and connect genuinely with other Moms.
We do have a few changes that I would like you to be aware of this year:
1) We will be meeting in a different room! Our new home will be the Great Hall, which is the large room where our children used to meet. So, park behind the building on the south side, enter through the covered doors, turn left and we will be right there.
2) As you have guessed, this means our MOPPETS are changing rooms too! The babies and one year olds will be upstairs as usual – babies in room 208 and one year olds in the nursery. The 2-5 year olds will be downstairs in Bethany’s Sunday School rooms. If you take the big stairs or the elevator down, the rooms are right around the corner. These rooms are beautifully painted and should be a warm, welcoming space for our kiddos.
If you have not already done so, will you please send an email to Katie Marzec (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the name and birthday of any child you plan on sending to our MOPPETS program?This will help us be so much more efficient on our first day.Thank you!Please feel free to include any allergies or concerns that you have.
Lastly, if any of you have toys that you are ready to clear out of your home we would love to refresh our MOPPETS toy collection a bit. We are looking for toys that spur creative play, do not need batteries, and do not have lots of small parts. Toys should be appropriate for ages 2-5. Please bring any donations to our first MOPS meeting, thank you!
Join us on September 3rd for our first MOPS meeting of the year. Childcare check in starts at 8:45 AM and the meeting lasts from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM. We hope to see you there as we kick off another fun filled year.
