This is a group for moms of preschoolers and elementary age children to meet for encouragement, practical help, and hope. The group meets twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays, 9:30-11:30am at the church. Starts September 11th. Childcare is provided for children, but RSVP is appreciated via our Facebook events each time we meet. https://www.facebook.com/MOPSofHampden/ We meet through the school year and break in the summer. MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it's a little confusing so let's just stick with "MOPS." We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

Why Small Groups

We see throughout the book of Acts in the Bible that the Church met both in large groups weekly for worship and the reading of Scripture, but also from house to house throughout the week.   We were created for relationship, and so we believe a fulfilling life happens best in the context of meaningful relationships.  This is why we are a church made up of small groups.  Our groups meet weekly in many locations and provide a place for you to connect, grow in faith, and share life with others.

What a Small Group is

A small group is made up of people who share similar interests, are in the same stage of life, or want to learn from each other.  People gather for all sorts of reasons whether it is playing a sport, having lunch during the work day, or studying the Bible together.  The point is not what you meet about, it’s that you are regularly meeting with people and living in community as God designed you to do.

Why You Should Join a Group

It is through life together that our problems become smaller and God uses others to bring support and encouragement to our lives.  Even when you might not realize you need it, your small group will quickly become a place where others don’t just know your name, but care about what is happening in your life and want to support you in your spiritual journey.

When and Where

Groups meet throughout the year in three semesters, with breaks between each semester.  New groups start each semester, making it easy for you to get involved at any time.

Groups meet weekly in a variety of places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, and office buildings throughout the Hampden/Bangor region.

Find Your Group

We have this easy-to-use online directory where you can search groups by topic, day, time, or location.  Click on a few groups that interest you, and then contact the group leader through the “CONTACT GROUP LEADER” link to make plans to check it out in person.  You can also make connections in person at Church on Sundays – come ask about small groups at the information booth.
