Elim Adults Make a Difference at MOPS

November 3, 2015

When the MOPS program takes over at Crown Point Christian Reformed Church, they really take over. Not only do dozens of moms fellowship in a large gathering room, but several nurseries and classrooms are taken over by kids ranging in age from 6 years old on down to infants and toddlers.
Running this program is no small feat, and that’s why Elim adults are a crucial part of the MOPS team. In each of the different programs for kids, Elim adults are helping to host, take care of, and entertain the children. Four adults, including Karna, sing praise songs and do crafts and activities with the older kids. Mimi is known as the “baby whisperer” and proudly recalls the time she soothed an infant to sleep. Christina loves to play with the infants and toddlers.
Their enthusiasm is evidence of what our churches can look like when we include the gifts of people who live with disabilities. It’s a blessing to which Children’s Ministry Coordinator Jenn Prim can testify. “We have been so blessed by the adults from Elim. They’ve really become a part of our team, and we couldn’t do this without them.”
Elim seeks meaningful opportunities for our adults to make a difference in their communities and in your churches. If you’d like to learn more about how your church can include the gifts of people with disabilities, contact Glenn Spoolstra at 708-293-6510 or at glenn.spoolstra@elimcs.org.
