What is MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. MOPS International exists to meet the needs of every mom - urban, suburban and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms - moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be! MOPS recognizes that the years from infancy through kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship and are filled with unique needs. MOPS helps moms through relationships established in the context of local groups that provide a caring atmosphere for today's mother of young children.
"What MOPS has provided for me… is a welcome break; a chance to make new friends; the opportunity to know I'm not the only mom who goes through the struggles and joys of raising young children…"
At First Baptist...

MOPS provides quality mothering resources. As part of your MOPS International Membership, you will receive a one-year subscription to MomSense Magazine, weekly Mom-E-Mail messages and other great benefits. Dues for the fall and spring semester are $35 per person, which includes MOPS International membership fee and covers expenses for supplies, speakers, etc. Scholarships are available.
During our MOPS meetings, your children will be cared for in a program called MOPPETS, where they experience love in a preschool-like setting. Feel free to bring a friend! Please make sure to let our MOPPETS coordinator know if you will be having a guest so that we can plan for adequate childcare.
