Camino de Luz
Camino de Luz is a ministry to women of all ages as well as their children, their families, and their friends. Those involved with Camino de Luz meet the call of Jesus in Matthew 5:14 to be the "Light of the World" by presenting the Gospel in a comprehensive manner, reconciling men and women in their spiritual relationships with Christ, and seeking to improve their lives through fellowship, Bible study, discipleship, prayer, worship, training, and pastoral care.

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.
FIND YOUR FIRE
Fire is a tool utilized only by human beings.
Since the beginning of time, humans have congregated around its warmth for light, protection and company. Every other creature on the planet fears fire, but we’ve been given the unique ability to harness it, to use its power to improve our lives. Not only that, but poets and artists have used fire to describe the God-given spark that wakes us up in the morning and fuels our purpose and passion. Whatever the context, fire is not to be ignored. Sisters, this is a year we will tend the fire in our hearts.
This is the bold reminder to think about what could go right.
This is the bold reminder to let things go.
This is the bold reminder to let yourself be loved.
Every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 9:00–11:00am. Food is provided at every meeting. We know how nice it can be to sit down and eat uninterrupted, so each meeting you will find something delicious!*
*We ask moms to bring a food item of your choice once per semester.

DON’T WORRY ABOUT FEES...MOPS IS FREE THIS YEAR!
We have some great meetings planned for you this year! Some of our favorites are...
• Mommy Helpline
• Raising Boys and Girls
• Tea and Testimony
• We are breast-feeding friendly.
• We accept moms from all different backgrounds.
• We’ve all been placed in this time and space in history as a tribe of women who are raising the world together. And the beauty of it is that we don’t all have to agree with one another, but everyone is in and we all need each other. Every mom is embraced at MOPS.
Mothers care deeply about their children. They’ll instinctively look to meet their child’s needs before thinking about their own. A mom needs assurance about her child’s well-being and happiness before she can get the most of her time in MOPS. The Moppets ministry contributes to meeting the needs of children, as well as the needs of their moms, through quality care and biblical teaching.

Never let the fire go out... When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God’s people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes.
