MOPS resumes Tuesday, September 20.

Mothers of Preschoolers is a Christian-based organization that supports mothers during the crucial and trying parenting years of infancy, toddler-hood and pre-school. Come and join us!

MOPS usually meets twice a month during the school year — every other Tuesday or so from 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. Childcare is provided for each meeting to allow for some much-needed “mommy” time. Each meeting may include:
  • a speaker or DVD session (topics such as anger, cooking, sleep, discipline, photography),
  • a creative activity (such as making candles, decorating journals, decorating cookies),
  • time for visiting and sharing brunch, and
  • group games and ice-breakers to get to know others.

There is a $40/semester, or $75/year, fee to cover the cost of MOPS. If this is a problem, please contact us about scholarships.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email us using the contact Katie Goshert, MOPS Coordinator, at 523-5613.

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 MOPPETS.

I am homeschooling my older children. Can I be involved in MOPS?
We currently have a structured class for older home-schooled children. Tara Packard (231-1640), MOPPETS Coordinator, could give you more information.

What is the cost for MOPS?
There is a fee of $40/semester (eight sessions) or $75/year. This covers your registration with MOPS International, supplies for creative activities, and childcare costs. We want you to come to MOPS; if the cost is a problem, please contact Katie Goshert at 523-5613 or e-mail her at about the scholarships that we have available.

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 information, activities, and chances to make new friends.

Where can I get more information about MOPS?
Please go to for more information about MOPS parent ministry.

How do I get to the church?
Get driving directions here.

Coming from MTU or Chassell, follow US-41 north toward Houghton. Evangel Baptist Church is on the right after MTU, before downtown. It is right after some new condominium/apartments on the right.

Coming from Hancock, M-26, or the neighborhoods behind ShopKo, take M-26 toward downtown Houghton. Follow US-41/Montezuma through town towards MTU/Marquette. The church will be on your left, about 4 blocks after the miner statue, where the road comes back together.
