What to expect
A MOPS meeting includes practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations and videos. Plus, there's usually food... food you didn't make! But more important, you'll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood.
Our meetings include light refreshments and plenty of coffee! Our group is a combination of DVD/Group discussion on topics relevant to moms today. We will also occasionally complete a simple craft or make something edible to take home for later (ex. chocolate covered pretzels)!
Childcare is provided by several volunteer women who are members of Hephzibah Baptist Church. They all are moms themselves and have had background checks and training in Child Protection.
Our group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month from September - May from 9:30am- 11:30am. All mothers of babies up to pre-school age children are welcome! We would love to have you join our group! Please contact Lauren Sheller (coordinator) if you would like join or if you have any questions. You may e-mail her at, firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the contact form below.
Who can come?
We've all been placed in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world. We know we mother better together, so all moms are welcome at MOPS. From the time you get pregnant to when your kiddo is in Kindergarten, our doors are open.
For the kids
Our childcare program consists of free-play,a snack (if permitted by mom) and age-appropriate crafts or coloring activities. We have a large childcare room with plenty of toys for the kids to enjoy. The childcare room is located on the floor below where the moms are meeting. The toddler bathroom is located adjacent to the childcare room.
The Basic Principles of a MOPS Group
Welcoming to all Women
We've all been placed in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world. And the beauty of it is that we don’t all have to agree with one another but everyone is in and we all need each other.
Sometimes we need a wise woman who has been there and done that to bounce ideas off of. That’s why we love our Mentor moms, they have sage advice and willing ears.
You have the ability to do big things. We want to help you gain the confidence to use your voice to change your world.
Real talk is liberating. It frees us from assumptions that we are alone in our struggles. We value taking a risk and sharing your story in order to heal someone else from their isolation.
Really, who needs another tutorial on how to make crepe paper flowers? What we provide is mommy friends who get you, hope-filled insight, and speakers who know we've only had three hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so they better keep it interesting.
Create, imagine, and actually finish a project. We occasionally like to have something "pinteresty" (Yes, that is a made up word. Work with me here.) to make at our meetings. We all need a little time to indulge in a creative endeavor.
Look, we all love our kids, but let’s be honest: a little break now and then makes us want to be with them even more. We provide a preschool-style experience for your kiddos that they will love going back to.
