What is MOPS?

MOPS stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers.” What that really means is mothers who are pregnant or have children from birth until they begin kindergarten. MOPS is about connecting with other moms in the same stage of life for encouragement, support, friendship, and fun. It is a place to come and have some time out of regular mom life to get to know other moms, receive mentoring from more experienced moms, hear presentations on topics of value to mothers of young children, discuss ideas, and do some creative projects.

Meetings

We meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, with a few exceptions due to holidays and public school breaks.

Theme

The theme for the 2016-2017 year is “We Are the Starry Eyed.” Because starry eyed means choosing to run toward light, wonder,
hope, and kindness in the midst of a world that threatens to envelop us in darkness, cynicism, fear, and violence. We were created to be light in the midst of darkness.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night,”even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. – Psalm 139:11-12

Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it… Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. – Jeremiah 33:2-3

Childcare

Childcare at MOPS is called MOPPETS and is provided in the same building, within hearing distance of the room MOPS moms meet in.  Children in MOPPETS have a short, age appropriate lesson, do a simple craft, have a snack, receive quality care, and play with other children their age. All of our volunteer childcare workers have passed background checks. In addition, we have a have one worker overseeing all of the classes who has passed more extensive background checks. She is the only person who will change diapers or take children to use the bathroom.

Cost

The total cost for one year at MOPS is $105. $25 goes to MOPS International to register you and provide a materials packet that go along with the theme. $80 covers childcare and supplies for the year.
