Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

MOPS meets at Shepherd of the Valley two Thursdays a month from 9:30 - 11:30 am, September to April.


Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is an international non-profit organization providing small groups designed to build friendships and support each other.  MOPS exists to encourage, equip, and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother, and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.


Moms can fully relax and enjoy themselves in MOPS meetings knowing that their children are well cared for in our MOPS Kids program. Children are grouped into rooms according to age.

How much does MOPS cost?

All moms pay a yearly MOPS International fee which is $31.95. In addition, Shepherd of the Valley MOPS moms pay a $70 annual fee. This money helps cover speaker fees, outreach projects, and other general meeting expenses. Scholarships are available. Please do not let this fee keep you from joining our group! Contact membership at with any scholarship questions.

More about MOPS

We begin each meeting with brunch and fellowship, followed by a speaker, activity, or game on topics such as parenting skills, enriching relationships, family values, etc. We also participate in service projects, crafts, and holiday fun.

  • While in MOPS Kids, children play, do faith-based activities, and have a snack. Children remain in the same room all year, so they are able to make friends and get to know their teachers well.

  • Our teachers are paid staff that have been background checked by the church and they work hard to provide a wonderful, caring, and nurturing environment for our children.
