MOPS

If you're a mother of a preschooler, you've got your hands full... We know how you feel, and we're here to help! There is nothing little about a mother's impact. The early years of child rearing are so significant and formative-so precious and fleeting... Moms know this, so they pour themselves into mothering. But who pours themselves into moms? We do. If you are a mom who:

  • is pregnant or has a newborn through kindergartner
  • desires to make new friends
  • wants to share the challenges and joys of motherhood
  • is looking for spiritual growth through trusted resources
  • wants to learn more about growing your children up in a Christian home
  • enjoys giving back to the community

...please join us!

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a program designed to nurture mothers with newborns through kindergarten as well as pregnant moms. The women are of many ages and backgrounds, but share the same desire- to be the best mothers they can be. The Evening MOPS group expands their reach to mother's of both Preschool and Elementary age children.

What is MOPS at Creekside?
MOPS at Creekside provides an inviting environment where women can come-just as they are-to build friendships, be encouraged and gain practical strategies all while their children are lovingly cared for in the MOPS Kids program. A typical meeting starts by sharing a meal together. There is usually a craft project or speaker on a motherhood topic. Discussion groups allow you personal time with a smaller group of moms to share ideas, thoughts and experiences. Also, in attendance each meeting are seasoned moms there to encourage, mentor and give us practical advice based on their experience and wisdom. We close with prayer requests and door prizes.

What will my children do?
MOPS Kids is a quality children's ministry. Our little ones are loved and nurtured during our MOPS meeting. This program includes classes for infants through pre-k. Children will enjoy stories, games, free play, crafts, music and a healthy snack. You may attend MOPS with or without your children.

The first Holiday Showcase began as a way to help support home base business owners who were members of the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) ministry. Since then, the event has become the main fundraiser to support the MOPS ministry's financial needs.

Each year you will enjoy unique Christmas shopping - with 50+ vendors providing gift and home decor items. Each year there is something new and special to enjoy. We invite you to join us!
