This journey of motherhood is
best traveled with others.

Here at MOPS we want to do just that - provide you with a tribe of supportive women as you navigate the world of motherhood, faith, and life together. MOPS, which stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers”, is for moms with one or more children ages birth to kindergarten.

We believe that it’s just as important for moms to grow as it is to raise our little ones. Therefore MOPS serves both you and your kids. While your children play and learn in the care and safety of on-site childcare, MOPS moms meet just down the hallway to socialize, hear from speakers, engage in creative activities and small group discussion, and share in a kid-uninterrupted breakfast and coffee break. Our hope is that you walk away refreshed, inspired, connected, and ready to brave the day. On-site meetings are currently on hold. Contact our MOPS Coordinators for information about Zoom meetings.

Each year MOPS has a theme that inspires our meeting topics, speakers, and outlook - a concept that will guide our entire tribe of women for the coming year. The 2020-2021 theme is DECIDE TO RISE. 

This is the year we arise as mothers to awaken a weary and sleeping world. The year to accept and believe that God will fulfill his promises to you, and to embrace your motherhood as a catalyst to his plans and promises for you. There are three things we will do to remind ourselves of who God made us to be: be strong, do your work, and chase joy.

Want to volunteer?

A large part of the success of MOPS is due to the dedicated and caring people who work in MOPS Kids, the childcare program. While MOPS moms are meeting, the MOPS Kids workers play with the kids, ensuring their comfort and safety. Small babies are cuddled while preschool-aged children participate in play-based learning. Stories are told, hands are held, and children learn wonderful socialization skills. If you would like to serve in MOPS Kids or know of someone else who would, please contact our MOPS Kids Coordinator at Background checks are required. MOPS Kids is a volunteer-rich program, with paid positions also available. Our childcare program is currently on hold.
