This is Motherhood
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) builds circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own cities, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom.
This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.
Cost: Yearly registration cost is $175. You are eligible for MOPS if your youngest child is newborn through Kindergarten. You can pay the full amount or half ($87.50) to secure your spot, with the remainder due August 1.

Registration includes all components of MOPS including childcare. $31.95 of this fee is sent to MOPS International from which you will receive a MOPS membership kit, access to the member website, and weekly MOPS emails. Please Note: Full refunds, minus the $31.95 payment to MOPS International, are only available until October 17, after which time refunds will be pro-rated at the discretion of the Registration Manager.
We do not want finances to stand in the way of anyone registering for MOPS. If this cost is a financial difficulty, please reach out to Alex Andrews.
We will need to go to a wait list if a MOPS Kids room reaches its capacity.
What can you expect? At our meetings we begin with refreshments and a time to talk and get to know each other.
This year's MOPS theme is "TO THE FULL." We will have insightful speakers on topics relevant to moms in this season of life. Each mom is a part of a small group that provides the opportunity to build friendships. We spend time discussing the topic of the day in these groups after the speaker. Once a month moms can enjoy completing a craft or participating in a creative activity.
We meet in the Fireside Room at 9:30-11:45 AM on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month beginning September 19, 2019 and ending May 21, 2020 (no meetings in December).
MOPS helps moms through relationships established in the context of local groups that provide a caring atmosphere for today's mother of young children. MOPS also encourages and supports moms through resources such as books, their magazine, and their web site.
MOPS groups are chartered through local faith-based organizations, including churches and parachurch ministries. While each group is different, the MOPS program is built on several foundational principles:
Community: MOPS provides an open, caring, and accepting atmosphere where women can come together to share this important season of life.
Mentoring: Mature women listen, encourage, and offer information and perspectives gained through experience.
Practical Instruction: Teaching focuses on areas of common interest, offering inspiration and information that is relevant to the life of a mother.
Leadership Development: MOPS groups are organized and run by mothers of preschoolers, as well as for mothers of preschoolers. Women who are involved in MOPS gain confidence in their leadership skills through the training and experience they receive from MOPS.
