MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers)

A ministry for mothers of infants, toddlers, and/or preschoolers in the throes of motherhood.  Do you just need a break away from the kids?  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to talk with other moms experiencing what you are going through? Would you like to be able to grow in your faith?  At MOPS, you can do all of these!

Come to Leighton Church every other Thursday morning from 9:30-11:30 a.m.  from September to May (exact dates to be published as soon as they are available) to take a break, get refreshed, energized, and encouraged in your faith.  Child care provided through the MOPPETS program; a fun, preschool-style atmosphere where kids can play, create, and learn about Jesus.

Registration is always open for MOPS.  Download the MOPS and MOPPETS Registration Forms (one for you, Mom, and the other for your kids participating in MOPPETS) and send along with payment to: MOPS, c/o Leighton Church, 4180 2nd Street, Caledonia, MI  49316 or e-mail to leightonmops@gmail.com.  Cost is $15.00 for Leighton MOPS group and an additional $31.95 for MOPS International Membership (optional) which provides annual membership to MOPS, subscription to MOPS magazine, curriculum, and more!
