My child is not in Preschool. Can I still come to MOPS?

MOPS is intended for mothers with children who have not yet entered first grade in school. So, whether your child is three days, three years, or is currently in kindergarten, we would LOVE to have you at MOPS. Pregnant mothers who are expecting their first child are also welcome at MOPS.

Will there be childcare?

Childcare is provided for birth through five years old. We call this part of our program MOPS Kids.

I am homeschooling my older children. Can I be involved in MOPS?

Home school children are allowed to attend. They typically are helpers with the 4- and 5-year-old classroom.

What is the cost for MOPS?

There is a fee of $50/semester or $90/year. This covers your registration with MOPS International, supplies for creative activities, and childcare costs.

Do I have to come all the time?

There is no requirement to attend each meeting, but we hope that you will want to come each time for the helpful information, activities, and chances to build relationships with our Mentor Moms and other MOPS moms.

Where can I get more information about MOPS?

Please find us on the MOPS International site at and find more information about our parent ministry.

How do I get to the church?

Evangel Community Church is on the intersection of M-26 and Sharon Ave near Econofoods and Culvers.
