Do I need to belong to Grace Lutheran Church to join MOPS?
No. Although a few of our moms are members, you do not need to belong to this specific church. It is a Christian-based program and participate in many service opportunities. But all of our moms come from many different backgrounds.
Who will be watching my child(ren)?
All of our MOPPETS caregivers must pass a background check. They are interviewed thoroughly to make sure they are a good fit. All have prior experience with children. Some are CPR and first-aid certified.
How much does it cost?
How often do we meet?
We meet every Thursday from 9:00am to 11:30am (excluding holidays and summer)
What is MOPS?
We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms 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 more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”
We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world. (Adapted from www.mops.org)
The cost varies depending on how many children you will have attending. This group does fundraising to help lower cost and therefore changes each trimester. Financial assistance may be availble for those interested so please, PLEASE do not let cost be the determining factor in joining our group!
What do I need to wear?
Come as you are! We have moms in business attire, to PJs to work-out
gear! It does not matter what you wear. We are glad you can make it!
Will there be food?
YES! And plenty of it! Our moms provide a dish-to-pass type brunch each week. There is also plenty of coffee and tea!
