What is MOPS?
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers.

We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why MOPS connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying along side one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

MOPS meet at Northgate’s South Campus. (350 Bank street.) We meet the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month from September to May. Childcare is provided through the MOPPETS program for every meeting. We offer three groups to meet the needs of all MOPS:
• Morning MOPS meets from 9:00-11:00am For Morning MOPS call Jen 585-703-3241
• Night MOPS meets from 6:30-8:30pm For Night MOPS call Shawna 585-721-8219
• Teen MOPS meets from 6:30-8:30pm For Teen MOPS call Marlene 585-409-5293
Teen MOPS provides a faith-based, supportive, nonjudgmental environment where teen moms can come together for mentoring and encouragement. In Teen MOPS, the teaching, activities and friendships are all focused on the very distinct needs of teenagers. Teen MOPS helps teen moms become more self-sufficient, confident, mature and giving young women.

• MOMSnext (For mothers of school aged children) meets from 6:30-8:30pm the 2nd Tuesdays of each month from September to May. For MOMSnext call Michele 585-727-2839

As mothers enter the school years, new challenges and issues arise, but the need for community and hope remains. For this reason we offer MOMSnext, a ministry to mothers of school-age children. A MOMSnext group is an open, accepting place for all mothers of school-age children to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help and spiritual hope.
