This journey of motherhood is best traveled with others. Here at MOPS, we want to do just that – provide you with a tribe of supportive women as you navigate the world of motherhood, faith, and life together. MOPS, which stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, is for moms with one or more children ages birth through kindergarten. Our local MOPS program is part of an international movement to locally connect moms, no matter their personal or faith background, who share this common bond of raising little ones. Whether you are a working, stay-at-home, rural, urban, adoptive, single, or married mom, MOPS is for you.
What is MOPS?
We believe that it’s just as important for moms to grow as it is to take care of our little ones. Therefore, MOPS exists to serve moms from pregnancy through your child’s kindergarten year.
While your children play and learn in the care and safety of our on-site MOPS Kids program, moms meet just down the hall to socialize, hear from speakers, engage in creative activities, have small group discussions, and share a kid-uninterrupted breakfast and coffee break. Our hope is that you walk away refreshed, inspired, connected, and ready to brave the day.
While we do have room for all moms, our provided childcare is limited to specific numbers to be sure that each child receives the individual love and attention that they deserve. Childcare spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis, based on RSVP to each meeting. If a mom is not guaranteed childcare, she will need to make her own arrangements.
Please contact us to find out the current status of your child’s class, as not all levels will have waitlists. Children under 6 months will stay with their mothers in the meetings, children above 6 months of age are not permitted in the large group setting.
The 2019-2020 theme is To The Full. Are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life? Sometimes we need the reminder that life is meant to be lived to the full. That it is OK to enjoy ourselves, to let our hair down, to worry less, and to really suck the marrow out of life (who even says that? I guess we do now). Because as far as we can tell, this is exactly how God intended for us to live – fully and abundantly. Have More Fun. Fear Less. Find Our People.
MOPS at Foothills meets every other Thursday, from 9:00-11:00am, beginning August 22, 2019. We hope you will be able to join us!
There is a fee for the MOPS Program at Foothills. The cost is $40 per semester. These fees cover the MOPS International Registration fee, as well as childcare for each meeting, paper products, speakers, crafts, gifts, and giveaways. You can pay these dues by semester, or all at the beginning of the year. If you wish to pay the full year up-front, a discounted total of $75 is available from now through our first meeting. If there is ever any question regarding fees, or how your dues are spent, please feel free to speak to the MOPS Coordinators at any time.
We never want financial issues to be a hindrance for any mom that would like to be a part of MOPS. Please contact the MOPS Coordinators to discuss our strictly confidential scholarships and other options available.
