MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a program designed to nurture mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten. MOPS offers instruction and support in a relaxed atmosphere of caring, sharing, and fun! Our HOPE MOPS group is chartered with MOPS International, Inc. This non-denominational organization helps us to nurture every mother by meeting her distinct needs. MOPS is primarily led by the mothers themselves with the addition of “seasoned, veteran” moms who are affectionately called “Mentor Moms.”

This group meets every 1st and 3rd Tuesday from 9:30 – 11:30am. There is a semester fee which covers the cost of childcare.

This small group is hosted by Jenny Lynne Giesa and runs the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month from 9:30 – 11:30am.
