MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers)

Momming is Hard. You deserve a break. Mothers of infants up through preschool are invited to join our new MOPS group starting here at First United Methodist. 

Come to our open house on Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 9:30-11 a.m. to find out more about this new small group. 

Here at MOPS, we gather moms. “Mothers of Preschoolers” believes in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. That’s why we rally women, in their own neighborhoods, to help them become more brave, kind and honest, one gathering at a time.

So, whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here. Come and meet other moms just like you — we have something for you.

Our MOPS group offers:

Weekly Inspiration: Mops emails weekly inspiration that focuses on mothering, relationships, leadership, body care and soul care. 

The MOPS Blog: a space that hosts the experts. Read from the real mom voices sharing the ups and downs of motherhood. 

Quarterly Digital Downloads: exclusive downloads from artists, authors, boss-moms and culture influencers.

Regular Meetings: meet with the MOPS group each month at First United Methodist Church of Excelsior Springs. 

Our Open House is Oct. 17, but future meetings will be on the first Wednesday of every month.
