MOPS is a program for Mothers of Preschoolers, designed to fulfill the need for friendship, creativity, and spiritual growth. Our format includes food, friendship, small group discussions, creative activities, and teaching from a a biblical perspective on topics relating to womanhood, marriage, parenting, and family relationships. The MOPPETS and Awana children's programs offer quality childcare with a spiritual emphasis through stories, games, and songs.
