MOPS, which stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, is designed to offer encouragement, community and spiritual nourishment to mothers of preschoolers.

All mothers who have a child, infant through kindergarten, are welcome to participate in the program.  Meetings are from 9:30 a.m. to noon every other Friday, from September through April. The cost is $100 per fall and spring semester, which includes special childcare for preschoolers while the moms enjoy time together. Payment plans are available as well as a reduced payment program for anyone who needs financial assistance.

MOPS meetings begin with brunch and fellowship. Then participants hear a guest speaker and later divide into small groups to discuss application of what was said. The meeting concludes with some time for moms to make fun and simple crafts.

Guest speakers often are moms themselves or are professionals with helpful perspectives for mothers of young children. Possible topics include discipline, marriage, financial planning, handling emergencies, teaching kids values, home organization, home decorating, etc.

Another valuable component of the MOPS group are the Mentor Moms who provide encouragement from the perspective of a mom who has “been there, done that.”

While the moms fellowship, the children participate in MOPPETS, a unique curriculum designed especially for them.
