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.

St Marys

St. Mary's Dinning Room: More than meals...

A group of individuals serve food at St. Mary's Dining Room the 4th Tuesday morning of the month.

The DETAILS:

To give you an idea what is involved, we usually set up the chairs and tables in the dining hall, wrap cutlery in napkins and serve the food to the hungry. Sometimes we help with making sandwiches, or cutting meat, slicing cake, or anything else that needs to be done.
 
We meet in the J.C. Penney parking lot, opposite the church, around9:30 a.m. on the last Tuesday of each month and carpool over.
 
You are, of course,  welcome to drive yourself and meet us at the St. Mary's site around 10:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. You will need to take a hat to cover your head and St. Mary's provides disposable aprons and gloves.
 
If you would like any more information and would like to participate please feel free to phone Clive Snedker at home on (209) 239-9103
