Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) at Calvary Fellowship Church


What is MOPS?
  • MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, an international organization that exists to encourage mothers who have children newborn – Kindergarten.
  • It’s a place where moms have the opportunity to make new friends, share experiences, laugh together, and learn trusted principles pertaining to womanhood, marriage and parenting. MOPS also provides opportunities for social outings geared specifically for preschool aged children and their mothers.
  • MOPS recognizes that the years from infancy through kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship and are filled with unique needs.
  • MOPS groups gather throughout the United States, Canada, and numerous other countries to meet the needs of more than 100,000 women each year! The women you meet at your local MOPS meeting may not all be of the same age, background or lifestyle, but they’re all in the same season of life with a shared desire to be the best mother they can be.

How do I Join?

If you are interested in joining this incredible support network of women, there are a few things to take note of:

  • Calvary Fellowship Church MOPS meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays, September – May.
  • Meetings begin at 9:30am and end at 11:15am. Children can be left in the care of the Wonderworks program at 9:15am.
  • An annual fee of $25.00 registration fee is required that goes to MOPS International. This secures your membership and entitles you to a one-year subscription to MOMS SENSE a bi-monthly magazine and the book “ Life on Plant Mom : A down to earth guide to your changing relationships” by Lisa T. Bergren. The Calvary Fellowships Church MOPS group also has a fall & spring semester dues that cover the meeting expenses. The dues are $42.00 for the fall (6 meetings) and $56.00 for the spring ( 8 meetings ).
  • Scholarships are available, so don’t let the cost hinder you from participating! We exist for the community of moms around us, and we want to include everyone we can!

I joined MOPS last year and LOVE it! I wish I would have known about this when my 9 & 7 yr olds were babies. I've met some great women and they made me feel so welcome being new to the group. The crafts we do are always so much fun! The speakers are very interesting and my little ones have a blast with the other kids. Looking forward to September. :-)

As a mentor of MOPS moms and an older woman with 6 raised kids and 45 yrs of experience being a wife, I am honored to walk beside these young moms to help guide and direct them, answer vital questions when I can, and share with them God's love.
I only wish I had had someone to come beside me when I had so many questions as a young mom.

I have been part of CFC MOPS for 6 years! It has been a great place to meet other moms in the same season of mothering! The Wonderplace childrens program has been wonderful! It is a safe place for my children to be when I am in the MOPS meeting and most importantly,my children look forward to seeing their friends and teachers.

MOPS is great! There is another group in Kennett that meets the first Thursday of the month (school year only) at Willowdale Chapel.

Love it!
