MOPS

Mothers of Preschoolers

What is MOPS?

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!

1st and 3rd

9:30am - 11:30am Fellowship Hall

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 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 9:30am-11:30am, starting September 7th.

Each year we typically hold play dates and moms night out events from month to month. Check out our closed Facebook group for more information on these events, as well as a way to connect with other moms! We also encourage moms to get together with one another on an individual basis to build relationships.

Meeting Dates

Childcare

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 table in the fellowship hall near the moms for them to spend time at with quiet activities.

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.

COVID Precautions

Everyone age 2 and up are required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status.

Dues

Dues are $57 for the year. ($32 for the MOPS International Membership and $25 for our local fee to offset the cost of childcare, meeting materials, supplies, goodies for moms, etc.). For more information on membership and to register with our group, click the links below.
