Mothers of Preschoolers

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 International’s goal is to “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. Connecting women to meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom” 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 Friday mornings per month. Meetings consist of a potluck brunch, inspiring speakers on a variety of topics, occasional service projects or creative activities, and small group discussion. Children 2 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!

Friends of MOPS and Small Groups

If you want to connect with other moms but can’t participate on Friday mornings due to work, schedule conflicts, or registration hitting capacity, we encourage you to join “Friends of Solana Beach MOPS” where you will be included on MOPS Playdates and Mom’s Night Out events, get info on future registration, and receive updates from Solana Beach MOPS about ways to connect with the local community. You can also visit the Solana Beach MOPS website to listen to audio recordings of past speakers.
