mops_logo09MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, though it is available to any mom with children from conception through kindergarten. Being a mom is what brings us together and allows us to build a community. MOPS is about meeting with other moms and building friendships, sharing stories, finding resources, having fellowship, and growing in the Lord.

The early years of being a mom are just as foundational to you as they are to your baby, and those years are filled with unique needs that other moms understand. Women from all backgrounds and ages find support in MOPS as they try to be the very best moms they can be!  So what are you waiting for? Come join us!!

MOPS meets at VGBC during the school year on the first and third Thursday of the month, 9:15-11:20 am, beginning September 1.

The annual registration fee for MOPS Int'l is $23.95.  In addition to this yearly fee, we have semester fees to help run our group at Vista Grande Baptist Church.  The first semester (September through December) dues are $51.05.  Dues for the second semester (January through May) are $50.  This pays for childcare workers, crafts, and other supply needs.

If you are not sure if MOPS is for you, come check us out! Your first meeting is FREE!
