A true connection can happen when you go offline and meet face-to-face with other women in your community. MOPS provides a space for us to share the realities of parenting and the day-to-day struggles, and allows us to build friendships full of encouragement and support. Whether you’re a soon-to-mom, first-time mom, or fifth-time mom, you’re welcome here.
MOPS International is about celebrating motherhood, meeting needs, making connections, and experiencing God’s love through relationships and resources.
MOPS offers not only childcare for little ones, but “mom-care” for Moms. Once her children are settled, the MOPS mom joins a program tailor-made to meet her needs. She can eat a lovely breakfast (and not have to share it!), and she can engage in adult conversation!
A MOPS morning includes a speaker who will inspire moms in topics relating to womanhood, marriage, child rearing and relationships from a Biblical perspective. Discussion follows in small groups where each mom is free to share her joys and struggles with other moms who truly understand.
Meanwhile, the MOPS Kids program provides loving, quality childcare for infants through age six. Moms can relax as their little ones are having fun in age-appropriate classrooms of their own. A MOPS Kids morning is filled with stories, songs, snack, playtime and lots of love!
MOPS helps mothers recognize that when they take time to meet their needs, they are more effective in meeting the needs of their families.
