Momming is hard. Take a load off.

There is no better time to come together in fellowship and community with other moms during these uncertain times. Join our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) 2020-2021 group to connect with others moms at every stage of parenting.

MOPs meetings are temporarily moved to evenings to accommodate our ever-changing childcare and schooling schedules. We are also following all recommended health & safety guidelines – masks and social distancing.

Childcare will not be available during our evening meetings.

If the group exceeds 25, we will also use the Café – Community Life Center, Room 107/108. Meetings are in-person unless we get a shelter in place order.


Friendship, community, resources, support and spiritual enrichment for mothers of preschoolers … because better moms make a better world.

What is MOPS?
MOPS (“Mothers of Preschoolers”) is an international organization that strives to encourage, equip and develop mothers of preschoolers to realize their potential as women, mothers, and leaders, while inviting them into a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Being moms is what brings us together and allows us to build a community. The early years of being a mom are just as foundational to you as they are to your child, and those years are filled with unique needs that other moms instinctively understand.

You do not have to be a “church-goer” or a specific denomination to join. MOPS is open to ALL mothers of children from birth through kindergarten age.

Mothers of Preschoolers meets the first and third Thursday of the month during the school year. Anyone with children ages birth to kindergarten can attend, and we welcome you! Our meeting consist of social time, a guest speaker or video, and discussion. Some of the topics we have discussed are: How to bring more spirituality into your home, Exercise and Women’s Health, Parenting, How to strengthen marriages, etc. While the moms are having time together, their children are with loving, caring childcare givers having fun with other children.

If you are in this season of life, please consider joining us. These moms also have Moms Day Out and Moms Night Out and they enjoy being together to share the journey of motherhood with one another.

What is MOMSnext?
MOMSnext is for moms who have children in elementary school and are encountering new and specific parenting challenges. MOMSnext meets with our MOPS group, but breaks away during discussion time for their own conversations to fit the needs of elementary school moms.
