Motherhood is a journey… and a journey is always better with friends!

For more than 30 years, MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) has been an important part of West Side Presbyterian Church. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because we believe in the transformative potential of relationships and mentoring. Discussions about life, faith and parenting help equip moms, and give encouragement! We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together!

Our theme for MOPS this year is "All For Love"

After a year spent hunkering down, living smaller, and experiencing a little more fear and anxiety than usual, we are declaring this is the year of going big. It’s a year of fresh starts and turning ordinary experiences into extraordinary ones. Enthusiasm will replace worry. Friendship will replace loneliness. No longer will we wait to “get back to normal”; instead, we will start making space for the new things God has for us. We will become less guarded and more daring because this is our year to live All For Love.

In years past, our meetings have been in the mornings, with a separate program for young children. However, because of COVID precautions, we are making some changes for the coming academic year of 2021-2022. At this time, we will not be able to offer childcare during our meetings, and are moving our meetings to Thursday evenings. But if you have a “babe-in-arms,” feel free to bring them along!

WHEN: 1st and 3rd Thursday evenings of the month, 7:15-9:00pm, FIRST MEETING: September 23, 2021

WHERE: West Side Presbyterian Church, 3601 California Ave SW
