MOPS

MOPS at St. James UMC

The MOPS acronym stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers” because we began in 1973 when a group of moms of young children banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. Over the past forty-five years, MOPS has expanded our reach to include moms with older kids, partnering with churches and organizations worldwide to equip and encourage moms in more than 60 countries.
Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together in their own neighborhoods and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time.
MOPS  is for mothers of children from infancy through six years old. Our goal in MOPS is to equip you to handle the joys and challenges of life as a mom. MOPS  is a great place for mothers to find friendship and acceptance, develop mothering skills, and promote spiritual growth. The women are of many ages and backgrounds, but share the same desire—to be the best mothers they can be. Child care is available during the meetings.
 MOPS of St. James UMC welcome women from throughout the community. You do not need to be a member of St. James UMC to join.
We meet the first and third Friday of the month from 10-12 during the school year. We would love for you to join us! Contact Kris at kris@stjamesraleigh.org for more information.
