Mothers of Preschoolers

MOPS Meetings

2nd and 4th

10:00am - 11:30am

What to Expect

A MOPS meeting offers moms an opportunity to connect with other moms. It usually includes practical teaching through a speaker, demonstration or video. Sometimes we get a little crafty... Sometimes we join hands to serve the community, but we always have fun!!!

This is a no-judgement zone. We are all moms of little ones. We face similar challenges and totally get that some weeks you'll be running in the door just in the nick of time (with cookies in your hair). Chances are- we will be, too!

Meetings are held in line with the Manchester School District schedule, on 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 10:00am-11:30am.

Each year we typically hold play dates and moms night out events. This being an atypical year, we will plan events outside of our Tuesday mornings as able per CT state guidelines. We also encourage moms to get together with one another on an individual basis to build relationships.

Who Can Come?

Whether you're a soon-to-be mom, seventh-time mom, teen mom, adoptive mom, stepmom, single mom, or any other type of mom, you are welcome here! We've all been placed in this time and place in history as the tribe of women who are raising the world. Our hope is that you will find encouragement, support, relevant teaching, and friendship with other women who are in your same season of life. We are confident that as you become more involved in our group, you will be better equipped to face the challenges that come with motherhood.

MOPS is a non-denominational Christian organization. You do not need to be a churchgoer or from a specific denomination to join MOPS. We welcome women from all faith and non-faith backgrounds and beliefs. The vision of MOPS is to see no mom alone. After all, we mother better together and better moms make a better world!

COVID Precautions

Everyone age 2 and up are required to wear masks.

Childcare is provided for ages 1 to 3 in the nursery. Babies under age 1 can stay with their moms. For preschool aged children (4 and 5 year olds) there is a large table in the back of the sanctuary for them to spend time at, doing quiet activities with a childcare worker.

Childcare is limited due to capacity, so if you can arrange your own childcare to leave your kids at elsewhere (home, grandmas house, etc.) that is helpful.

No food or drinks are provided. Bring your own coffee and snacks.
