*Please bring a gift of $10 or less if you would like to participate in a group-wide gift exchange (different from Secret Sister). Please make sure that your gift is something that you would LOVE to take home. There will be a few extras at the meeting to ensure that no one is left out.


*We would like to give Christmas cards to our MOPPETS workers. They are so kind and great with our kids while we have "mom" time, so we would like to show our appreciation for their hard work. This is a perfect opportunity to get your kids involved with the giving spirit of the season. Each table will need to make at least 4 Christmas cards and bring them to the meeting.

What is MOPS?

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.

We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through 5 years old. We know it's a little confusing so let's just stick with "MOPS."

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.
