TeenMOPS

2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month 
from 5:30PM to 7:45PM

If you are a teen who is pregnant or have a child 6 years old or younger, it's time to join Teen MOPS!!  


In Teen MOPS, the teaching, activities and friendships are all focused on the very distinct needs of teenagers. Teen MOPS helps teen moms become more self-sufficient, confident, mature, giving and self-aware young women.  

Right now we are going through a curriculum called "Single Parenting that Works" by Christian therapist Kevin Leman.

Download our brochure about the TeenMOPS program HERE

The beautiful thing about Teen MOPS and POPS is that all the work we do extends beyond the moms and dads themselves. When we make disciples of these young parents, they become better parents, family members, spouses, and friends.  They become better employees, students, volunteers, and leaders, so thus our community benefits.  And God's kingdom on Earth benefits.  When we take the time to mentor and make disciples, God takes our efforts and multiplies it, exponentially.  Even after only 6 years, I have seen the beauty that flows from making disciples among teen parents.  Some stories are astounding, some are simple, but all are beautiful.

Read about what has been happening through this ministiry.

We are still looking for people to partner with us and mentor these young parents.  There are so many ways you can get involved.  Please feel free to talk to Miriam Deuel, Ann Marie Rehbein, or Pastor Dan if you think that this mentoring ministry is something you may be interested in.
