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 our 2018-2019 season is now CLOSED. We are no longer able to accept new members. Please check back here in June for information on joining our group for the 2019-2020 season, please contact Jen Schaap via email at for more information and to register.

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 moms meet, the children experience 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.
