Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1 CORINTHIANS 13:4-7, ESV

What is MOPS?
Join us first and third Thursdays of the month, September 2021-May 2022.
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) welcomes any mom of children birth through Kindergarten!
Are you a mom who could use a little break and a chance to get refreshed and renewed? Do you long for adult conversation and a delicious meal that you can enjoy while it’s still warm? If you answered yes to either of these questions we invite you to visit MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) at Crossroads Presbyterian Church!
MOPS International offers mothers of young children a place to find friendship with other moms in a supportive and loving environment. MOPS is not a Bible study. Instead, our ministry focuses on relationships and communicating the love of Jesus Christ.
2021 – 2022 MOPS Theme : “All for Love”
After a year spent hunkering down, living smaller, and experiencing a little more fear and anxiety than usual, we are declaring this is the year of going big. It’s a year of fresh starts and turning ordinary experiences into extraordinary ones. Enthusiasm will replace worry. Friendship will replace loneliness. No longer will we wait to “get back to normal”; instead, we will start making space for the new things God has for us. We will become less guarded and more daring because this is our year to live All For Love.
Love is the most powerful force on the planet, and yet the concept almost seems cliché. We tell somebody we love them, and in the same breath we talk about how much we love a new podcast. Perhaps we’ve become so accustomed to the word that we’ve forgotten how revolutionary it is, how God’s love changes everything. It is life-altering, curse-lifting and, as shown in Christ’s resurrection, quite literally death-conquering.
This year we embrace the transformative power of love, to the point where it starts to affect everything we do—the way we talk to our kids, interact with strangers, handle disappointments, celebrate victories, make decisions. When love floods into our lives, it all shifts. It results in less doom-scrolling, more conversation. Less comparison, more community. Less fear, more confidence. More over-the-top displays of compassion. More patience. More life in our souls. This year, love will save us. In fact, it already has, because love’s name is Jesus.
This year, we will explore together how God calls us to:
Walk in Power
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7
Love One Another
Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:39
Make Love your Legacy
Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
This is the year of big things. Love is starting to fling open doors, and when love comes into the room, no one is safe.
Comfort zones crumble,
Relationships are born,
Fear is cast out,
Whimsy is restored, Perspectives shift,
Ready or not, here it comes…
