What is MOPS?
MOPS at QSUMC is a place to find friendship, community, resources, support and spiritual enrichment for you as a woman and mother so that you know you're not alone. This unique organization of women encourages and supports all mothers to be the best they can be! The program includes teaching by mentors and guest speakers, discussion and opportunities to develop creatively and spiritually.
We encourage, equip and develop moms as women, mothers and leaders. MOPS moms journey together, sharing real relationships that are transformative and learning leadership development skills that will enrich the lives they touch. We aim to see no mom alone because when we impact a mom, we impact children, families, and ultimately our world.
Who can come?
This program is designed for mothers and led by mothers to meet the distinct needs of moms with children from birth to Kindergarten.
What can I expect from each meeting?
Each meeting gives us a chance to connect with other mothers through discussions relating to children, womanhood, home and marriage, and also creative activities. Join us for times of learning, encouragement, fun and friendship!
When are the meetings?
MOPS at QSUMC meets twice each month on Fridays from 9:00-11:30am.
The 2016-2017 meeting times are:
Fall Semester: Sep. 9 & 24, Oct. 14 & 28, Nov. 11, Dec. 9
Spring Semester: Jan. 13 & 27, Feb. 10 & 24, Mar. 10 & 24, Apr. 14 & 28, May 12
What about my kids?
While moms are enjoying their time together, their children will be in the care of professional preschool teachers. Using the "MOPPETS" curriculums Sing n' Sprout and What's in the Bible, the children will be engaged in fun learning activities as well as free play and snack time.

MOPS fees are $120 for the year, or $60 per semester. There is also a $24.95 MOPS International Membership Fee.
