MOPS ... this is motherhood
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a ministry of Christ Lutheran Church, and is a part of MOPS International. This ministry is open to any mother who has children infant through Kindergarten. MOPS International encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders in relationship with Jesus and in partnership with the local church.
MOPS Membership is a movement of women who are practicing becoming more brave, kind, and honest. MOPS exists to build communities of women who love and support each other through the journey of motherhood. No matter what motherhood looks like for her, every mom has a place in MOPS.
What happens at a MOPS meeting?
A typical MOPS meeting includes fellowship, a speaker, table discussions, a creative activity, and a great breakfast. Speakers and topics vary, but are relevant to many aspects of a mom's life.
During our MOPS meetings your children may attend MOPS Kids, with playtime, bible lessons, crafts, and singing and snack time.
MOPS provides quality mothering resources. As part of your MOPS International Membership, you will receive weekly email messages about what moms are talking about, text message pep talks, and a quarterly print magazine.
Although MOPS is a non-profit, we do charge a $100 annual fee* to cover MOPS International fees, our operating costs, speakers, crafts and materials.
*Partial payments are accepted and scholarships are available. Please do not let the cost influence your decision to join. Please call or email for more information.
MOPS Meeting Schedule
Meetings are in person at Christ Lutheran Church. Meetings start at 9:30AM and run until 11:30AM.
Small Group Meeting Schedule
Small group is a thoughtful, faith-based study and discussion on topics such as friendship, hospitality and character. Motherhood is hard. In a world of five-step lists and silver-bullet solutions to become perfect parents, mothers are burdened with mixed messages about who they are and what choices they should make. If you feel pulled between high-fives and hard words, with culture's solutions only raising more questions, you're not alone.
But there is hope.
You might think that Scripture doesn’t have much to say about the food you make for breakfast, how you view your postpartum body, or what school choice you make for your children, but a deeper look reveals that the Bible provides the framework for finding answers to your specific questions about modern motherhood. Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler help you understand and apply the gospel to common issues moms face so you can connect your Sunday morning faith to the Monday morning tantrum. Discover how closely the gospel connects with today’s motherhood. Join Emily and Laura as they walk rough the redemptive story and reveal how the gospel applies to your everyday life, bringing hope, freedom, and joy in every area of motherhood.
We will meet in the evenings on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, time and day may change depending on participants availability. Books will be provided. Contact Kelli Allen, at , if interested in joining.
