MOTHERS OF PRESCHOOLERS

We’d love for you to join our community of moms that are here to support, laugh, and learn together.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers and exists to encourage, equip and help women become better moms. MOPS connects mothers all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel equipped and to find their identity by journeying alongside one another.

 

Who can be in MOPS?

MOPS is open for all mothers of children from birth through kindergarten (5 or 6 years old).

What is a Mentor Mom?

Sometimes we need a wise woman who has been there and done that to bounce ideas off of. That’s why we love our Mentor moms, they have sage advice and willing ears. Also, a mentor mom is someone whose kids have all aged out of kindergarten.

What happens at a meeting?

Bi-monthly meetings include yummy food, fellowship, a topical speaker, discussion group time with the same group of women each meeting, and the opportunity to create something useful for your home. This is a chance for you to carve out some time for yourself. Time to think, to talk, to laugh with new friends and to realize you’re not alone on this journey called motherhood and this season of life with young children.

When does MOPS meet?

We meet twice a month on Friday mornings from 9:30–11:30 am. Childcare is available from 9:15 – 11:45 a.m.

Where does MOPS meet?

MOPS meets in the Commons and the Gathering Room at Ben Davis Christian Church.

Is there childcare available?

Childcare is available. During the time you are nurturing yourself, your kids will be lovingly cared for by staff and volunteers that will provide a preschool-like environment in age appropriate rooms. Your kids will have a chance to do crafts, listen to stories and songs, play games, have a snack, and make new friends. There will be several different themes explored throughout the semester. Every effort is made to ensure your child has a safe and positive experience

What does MOPS cost?

The total cost to join MOPS is $70 for the semester. This covers the cost of childcare (for any number of children), speaker fees, hospitality items, and coffee. It also covers the MOPS International Dues. You receive a MOPS welcome kit, which includes all sorts of goodies from MOPS.

With growing family needs, many MOPS moms find themselves adjusting to new lifestyle and financial situations. Because we want to include anyone who wishes to join, regardless of her ability to pay, we offer a limited number of partial scholarships. Please contact the church office for more details.
