What is MOPS?
Encouragement – MOPS understands moms, because we know the unique joys and challenges of this early season of mothering. Through Elim MOPS, moms help each other become better moms while learning new parenting skills and developing new friendships. You’ll be welcomed, accepted and inspired to reach your full potential.
Relevance – The MOPS experience provides relevant, growth-oriented resources for the mothering journey. Through MOPS, moms can learn mothering skills and strengthen supportive relationships while children are cared for in the nurturing environment of MOPPETS.
Hope – Elim MOPS provides a place to anchor your hope and share your joys and frustrations with other moms. The relationships that develop within the group will help you sustain hope during the daily act of mothering, even when you feel you have no more of yourself to give.
Growth – While your children will outgrow different stages of their life, you’ll never outgrow what you gain at MOPS. MOPS equips you with parenting knowledge and leadership skills to better influence your family, community and world.
