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 $92 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 for more information.

Small Group Meeting Schedule
Small group is a thoughtful, faith-based study and discussion on topics such as friendship, hospitality and character. We will be studying Mom Set Free Bible Study: Find Relief from the Pressure to Get It All Right by Jeannie Cunnion this year.
As moms, we are under so. much. pressure. Pressure that weighs us down and threatens to wipe us out. Are you ready for relief? Mom Set Free will empower you to parent in the confidence of God's grace and to experience the freedom you were created for.
Jeannie invites us to journey alongside her as we learn to:
• Lay down what God has not asked us to carry so we can thrive in what He has.
• Embrace our significance in our children’s lives in light of God’s sovereignty.
• Trust God with the children He has entrusted to us.
• Receive God’s grace so we can reflect God’s heart to our kids. It’s time to breathe deeper, walk lighter, and reclaim the wonder and adventure of parenting.
