Mothers of Preschoolers

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

SBPC's MOPS program (for expectant moms - mothers of Kindergarteners) is currently full for 2023-2024; however, often mom's plans change, so we strongly encourage anyone still interested in joining to click here to sign up for the waitlist as we are often able to add additional moms throughout the year.

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!
