MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers and exists to encourage, equip, and help women become the best moms that they can be! Women who are pregnant or have young children (birth through kindergarten) are all invited to join MOPS.
The fall 2015 MOPS program meets on the 2nd or 4th Tuesdays of each month beginning in September from 10am to noon at First Baptist. Fall meeting dates are September 8 (or 15 -- decision pending) & 22, October 13 & 27, November 10 and December 8. There is a registration fee per semester of $75 with childcare and $55 without. The cost includes registration with MOPS International, crafts materials, speaker fees, plus childcare as needed. Scholarships and/or discounts may be available depending on your level of involvement.

MOPS provides an opportunity to meet other moms and make the journey of motherhood together. We share our experiences, learn from one another, and support each other. MOPS meetings are a wonderful place to build friendships and have fun with other moms. MOPS groups meet in churches through the United States, Canada, and 19 other countries.
A typical MOPS meeting includes a time of sharing food and conversation followed by a presentation of information relevant to mothers raising preschoolers. The group covers subjects such as child rearing, marriage, relationships, cooking, and homemaking from a Biblical perspective. Sometimes we complete an easy creative activity to be brought home. At each meeting, there is time for small discussion groups to interact, thus allowing time for deepening friendships and individual growth.
Children are cared for during MOPS meetings in a parallel program called MOPPETS, available for children 5 and under.
