MOPS at St. James UMC

Currently on hold but stay tuned for more information!

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.

Designed for mothers of children from infancy through six years old. The goal of a MOPS program 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. We believe 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.

Please stay tuned for more information on MOPS and other exciting opportunities.
