MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
MOPS is a ministry dedicated to serving moms with children ages 0-5 years old. Being a new mom in this season of life has many challenges, and MOPS offers them a place where they can be themselves, get a 2 hour break to talk about the struggles of motherhood with peers, and be encouraged by other moms in their season and seasons beyond them.
At MOPS, there are 6-7 tables with a Table Leader (one who facilitates the discussion) and a Mentor Mom (a woman and mother who is beyond having preschool aged children). When a mom comes to MOPS, she gets childcare and breakfast. She gets to hear an inspiring word from a Christian speaker and is able to discuss how to apply it with other moms who sit at her table. Each table also has many activities offered throughout the year to encourage and build community with each other. Many lives have been changed, many moms have found refuge, many hearts have been softened, many women have prayed together, laughed together, and listened to each other.
