Mothers of Preschoolers
MOPS is for YOU!
Hillcrest Baptist Church is a charter member of Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS). We meet the second Friday of each month from 9:30- 11:30 AM from September through May. The MOPS program is for mothers-to-be and moms of children ages birth through kindergarten.
This group allows for moms to seek advice and learn from other moms about the challenges and rewards of being a preschool mommy. MOPS recognizes that the years from infancy through Kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship and are filled with unique needs. Being the best mom God wants you to be is not a job to be done alone. Come and join a loving group of moms this month!
There is an annual membership fee of $35, which includes crafts, activities, and guest speakers for the MOPS meetings.
