Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

Eight women gathered. The number was small, but the need was great. The first MOPS meeting took place in February 1973 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. For two hours, while their children received care, these mothers talked, laughed, ate, passed a basket for childcare expenses, had a craft demonstration and ended with a short devotional. In this humble beginning, the seeds of the MOPS concept and format were planted. Through friendship, creative outlets, and instruction, the women began to understand that “mothering matters.” Today, the same needs for significance are met in much the same way in MOPS groups across the United States and around the world.

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a group of women with children 5 years old and younger, who share a love for their families and enjoy fellowship with other moms going through the same (although very brief) journey in life.

MOPS meets the second and fourth Monday of every month (during the school year), 9:30-11:30am in the Fellowship Hall, with a great MOPPETS program available in the KidZone Nursery.

Are You Moppets Material?

Is God calling you to bring His Message of Salvation to the next generation? Do you like cuddling cute babies? Reading stories to little ones? Singing songs and playing games? Is Jesus’ call to “let the little children come to me” one you take to heart? Perhaps you are called to serve God through a special ministry.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) needs MOPPETS, dedicated Nursery volunteers who are passionate about bringing the message of Christ to preschoolers and their mothers. MOPS meets the second and fourth Mondays of the month during the school year, from 9:00am to noon.
