Here at HPAC MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood and what that looks like in community with Christ.

We want build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. With your MOPS membership you will be connected with moms all over the world and in your own community, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom.

This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.

MOPS Classic is for Mothers of Preschoolers and meets alternating Tuesday Mornings in the Centre, September–May, from 9:30-11:30am. MOPS International Membership + Program Fees are required. See the REGISTRATION Tab for more info on how to sign up.

What does MOPS Classic look like:

Mentoring

Sometimes we need a wise woman who has been there and done that to bounce ideas off of and to remind us that we WILL survive these sometimes chaotic preschool days. We love our MOPS Mentors – they have sage advice and willing ears.

Leadership Development

You have the ability to do big things. We want to help you gain the confidence to use your voice to change your world.

Honest Conversation

Real talk is liberating. It frees us from assumptions that we are alone in our struggles. We value taking a risk and sharing your story in order to heal someone else from their isolation.

Relevant Teaching

Really, who needs another tutorial on how to make crepe paper flowers? What we provide is mommy friends who get you, hope-filled insight, and speakers who know we’ve only had three hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so they better keep it interesting.

Creative Activities and Service Projects

Create, imagine, and actually finish a project. We occasionally like to have something “pinteresty” (Yes, that is a made-up word – work with me here) to make at our meetings. We all need a little time to indulge in a creative endeavor. We also believe that there is a greater community outside of the walls we meet in, and take time to work on projects to serve Windsor-Essex County.

Childcare (Age 4) (Space is limited)

Look, we all love our kids. But let’s be honest – a little break now and then makes us want to be with them even more. We provide a preschool-style experience (MOPSKids PROGRAM) for your kiddos that they will love going back to. We strongly encourage mommas to make use of the childcare provided for kids over 4 months old.

MOPS By Night will be meeting one evening a week, bi-weekly. MOPS International Membership is required. (See Registration Tab for more information on how to acquire a MOPS International Membership)

Stayed TUNED: Location, Days, and Time TBA

WHAT DOES MOPS BY NIGHT LOOK LIKE?

MOPS By Night will be a simplified version of a MOPS Classic morning for Mothers of Preschoolers. We will meet to spend some time in deeper conversation over coffee and tea (and sometimes goodies) about what is happening in our lives as moms, wives, sisters, friends, and women! There will be no childcare provided, but our hope is that evenings will mean older kiddies can be left at home with a dad, grandparents, or a sitter, but please feel free to bring your sweet babes who still need you in the evenings!

Just like MOPS Classic, MOPS By Night will provide:
