MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) is an international group that meets in smaller clusters in various churches, coffee shops, homes, etc. If you have at least one child under the age of 5 and love meeting together with fellow mamas to discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of parenthood, look no further! We meet regularly to connect, grow, and laugh together, and welcome all! Come as you are.

Our regular meetings are the 1st Friday morning of each month (9:15-11:15, childcare included) and the 3rd Thursday night of each month (7:00-9:30, no childcare), with play dates and moms-night-outs in between. For more information on what MOPS is, visit, and to find out more info about our group in particular, please visit our facebook page: We hope you join us!
