MOPS – Mothers of Preschoolers

What: Fellowship for Moms and their kids
When: 2nd & 4th Thursdays between September and May  from 9:30-11:30am

Where: At gracespring
Why: Moms meet separately from their children to provide opportunities for relaxation, learning, discussions and creative activities.

We would love to have you come check us out.  Your first meeting is free.  If you decide to register there is a $31.95 MOPS International registration fee that goes directly to MOPS international.  In addition to the MOPS International fee our local chapter collects dues in September to cover our local expenses of childcare, brunch supplies, speaker fees, and crafts supplies.  Our local dues are determined at the beginning of each semester.  We also have scholarships available as we don’t want money to keep anyone from being able to enjoy the MOPS experience. Please contact our Finance Team Leader, Ashley Hiestand, for information regarding scholarships at

Registration for MOPS is currently open for our 2017-2018 season. Please visit to register, and use code L1OV (L1óh’V – not zero). If you have any questions, please email using one of the emails below.

Meetings include a potluck breakfast for the moms, a speaker/video/craft/game (depending on the meeting), short devotion time, small group discussion time, and group prayer time at the end.  While the mom’s meet, the children go in our MOPS Kids program where they are divided into age-appropriate groups that play and experience hands on activities and crafts together.  MOPS Kids volunteers and staff are loving people who have a heart for small children.  All our MOPS Kids workers have a background check completed.

Our Hospitality Team Leader also plans Mom’s night out once a month and additional playdates during the month that are optional.
