MOPS - Mothers Of Preschoolers
MOPS International exists to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ. MOPS is a positive and supportive program designed to nurture expecting moms through mothers of kindergartners. Solana Beach MOPS is a non-denominational group chartered through Solana Beach Presbyterian Church.
Solana Beach MOPS meets two Fridays a month from 9:00am-11:30am. Meetings consist of a potluck brunch, inspiring speakers on a variety of topics, occasional service projects or creative activities, and small group discussion.. Children 3 months and older are lovingly cared for in our MOPPETS children's program, including structured time for kids 2 years & older where they will sing songs, hear Bible stories, make crafts, eat snack, enjoy free play, and more! The Fall semester begins in September and runs through the mid-December. The Spring semester begins in January and runs through mid-May.
