About MOPS

Mops is a ministry of Starkey Road Baptist Church which brings together mothers of preschoolers. MOPS allows you to meet and build friendships with moms in your local community. The early years of being a mom are just as foundational to you as they are to your baby, and those years are filled with unique needs that other moms instinctively understand.

Is MOPS for me?

If you are a mom who…

…is pregnant or has a preschool child,
…enjoys making new friends,
…wants to share the challenges and joys of motherhood,
…needs encouragement and opportunities for personal growth
…then YES, MOPS is definitely for you!

When do we meet?

SRBC MOPS meets on the second Friday of every month from September to May, 9 a.m. – 12:noon. (except April)
