During last week's meeting, two members of Steering Team spoke about what ST has meant to them & Margaret passed out a ST interest form (download available at end of this post). I can say it's one of the best things I've done for myself since becoming a mother... so, so thankful that I impulsively signed up last year! :)
ST is an incredible experience... you're working closely with a fun group of ladies while serving your community & other moms! Being a Steering Team member is a time commitment. ST meets once a month, usually during the week after the meeting. These meeting usually last 2 to 2.5 hours during the evening. We don't have childcare during the ST meetings, so you'll need to have someone to keep your littles at least once a month. We also have a weekend day retreat during the summer, during which we'll plan the coming year. Each member of ST helps with set-up on Wednesday night before the monthly meeting or clean-up after the meeting.
And of course, willingness to serve is of utmost importance. As a group of mothers, we have issues & other commitments come up... that's when it's crucial to have a supportive team to step up & help each other. I've been continually amazed this year by the support & love shown to one another by the members of ST!
Joining ST is a great way to take your MOPS experience to a more personal level. So think about it, pray about it & if you decide to join, we'd LOVE to have you!
If you're interested in joining ST, please print the following form, fill it out & bring to our next meeting:
