Morning Star Church hosts two MOPS groups that meet on opposite Fridays. Both groups offer identical themes, speakers, crafts and children’s curriculum. Because of the childcare planning required, participants are asked to *only* attend meetings for the group they are registered under.


MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) provides support for moms of children birth – kindergarten aged. This group is an open, accepting place for all mothers to come, just as they are, to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help and spiritual hope. MOPS exists to encourage, equip, and develop every mom to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader.

Meetings include fellowship, devotions, speakers, crafts, service projects, and more. We also host monthly playgroups and social events throughout the year. For more information about MOPS International visit


While moms are attending MOPS meetings, children (infants 6-month of age through kindergarten) enjoy their own program–MOPS Kids! Children are divided into age groups and are involved in planned activities that provide social growth and spiritual enrichment. Children under 6 months may attend meetings with mom.


Registration for the 2018 – 19 MOPS is open!

Group preference is guaranteed for registrations received by July 31, 2018. Registrations received after July 31st will be assigned to a group based on availability. (Group preference will still be considered as best as possible, but is not guaranteed.)

The dues for 2018 – 19 MOPS are $65 / semester.

If you prefer to pay by cash, check or set up a payment plan, contact the coordinators to make those arrangements before registering.

MOPS offers a limited number of need-based scholarships each semester. Registration for scholarships is administered off-line. Please contact either of the coordinators listed above to see you if you qualify.

At Morning Star, we offer a variety of ways for mothers of all stages to connect and grow in authentic community. We seek to provide an accepting place for all mothers to experience personal development, practical help and spiritual growth. Check out the below groups for more information. Remember, life is better connected!


Women's Life Groups

Life groups offer the people of Morning Star Church a fun and relaxed place to grow spiritually as well as a safe place to build community. Life groups are also a catalyst for forming trusted relationships that provide support and encouragement during the ups and downs of life. Throughout the month, women of various ages and backgrounds gather to grow spiritually, develop life skills and meet others.
