WHAT IS MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. MOPS International encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women and leaders, in relationship with Jesus, and in partnership with the local church. Our groups strive to meet the needs of moms with children from expecting (either by pregnancy, foster care, or adoption) through kindergarten for her youngest child. We recognize that stay-at-home moms, working moms, teen moms, single moms, and married moms all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be. MOPS groups can help!

WHAT WILL MY CHILDREN BE DOING WHILE I’M IN THE MEETING?

WHAT IF MY KIDS ARE NO LONGER PRESCHOOLERS?
As part of our MOPS gathering, we have MOMSnext! We have a place for kids of all ages to do virtual learning, homeschool work, and stay engaged with qualified leaders while moms connect.
WHAT DO I DO WHEN I GET THERE?
You can drop off your children in their classroom in Children’s Ministry a little before 10:00am on the meeting date. Check in and get a label for you and your children. One of our leaders will be available to help you with check in and find the classrooms for your children. Then come down to the Worship Center lobby for a fantastic brunch and meeting that will begin at 10:00am. New to River Valley? One of our MOPS leaders will be happy to show you around!
WHAT IF I AM NOT A MEMBER OF RIVER VALLEY?
You do not have to be a member of River Valley to be a part of MOPS. Our moms come from all over Bastrop County. You do not have to be a certain denomination or even a “church go-er” to attend. You will be welcomed, accepted, and inspired to reach your full potential and recognize your influence within your family and the world!
