MOTHERS OF PRESCHOOLERS (MOPS) PROGRAM STARTING AT ST. ANDREW
This school year, St. Andrew Preschool is excited to be hosting a Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group here at St. Andrew. At MOPS, we gather moms, all moms. 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, young, seasoned, foster, step, or any other type of mom, you are welcome here. We have something for you. We believe that remarkable things will happen when moms come together to learn and fellowship. We build circles of moms who meet to share their hopes, fears, and insights. We rally women together to help them become more brave and kind one gathering at a time. MOPS encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women and leaders and share in Bible lessons, games, videos, activities, and play dates.
