    Made in the Image of God Family Discussion Guide

     

    Our hearts are broken with the events in Minneapolis and we join you and all our families in praying for unity and change. In light of what is happening we thought it would be a perfect time to gather your family together to talk about some important values that God calls us to have for one another.

    We have put together a family discussion sheet and other resources for you to use while you tackle this extremely vital topic with your child.

    Christ Church MOPS believes in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. We rally women to help them become more brave, kind and honest by providing a safe and loving community to journey through motherhood. We know that mothering can be challenging at times, and so MOPS is here to create a space where moms can be themselves.

    Our specialty is serving moms. Whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here.

    We begin meetings with time to chat with new and old friends. We enjoy listening to a speaker and finish our meeting by discussing the topic around our tables.

    Special Needs Ministry

    SERVING CHILDREN WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS

    We believe in God's value for every human life, and we believe that Jesus loves every child dearly. Our Early Childhood and Children's Ministries are committed to helping provide a safe, welcoming environment where we can focus on loving Jesus with our heart, mind and soul.

    Our desire is to:

    1. Encourage each child to enjoy worshipping Jesus.
    2. Come alongside parents to encourage their spiritual nourishment.
    3. Secure a volunteer buddy to be with your child if needed.
