Alternating Fridays – MOPS & MOMS NEXT
9:15-11:45 am, Gilmore Hall
MOPS (Mothers of PreSchoolers) at PazNaz meets every other Friday from September to May! MOPS provides moms with a hot meal, relevant teaching, support from Mentor Moms, companionship, and fun craft projects as their children enjoy their own crafts and activities in a loving environment. This year’s theme is Find Your Fire and is for women who are pregnant or mothers with children of all ages. Some women fear the fire, others tend their God-given fire and use it to light their hearts and the world. Let’s be those women by living expectantly, surrendering daringly, and breathing freely.

Semester Registration: $110 for moms with children in MOPS Kids, or $60 for moms only.
Full Year Registration: $200 for moms with children in MOPS Kids, or $100 for moms only.
