What is MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. MOPS International exists to meet the needs of every mom – urban, suburban and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms – moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be! We recognize that the years from infancy through kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship and are filled with unique needs.
Our goal at Swift Creek Baptist Church is to provide a Christ-centered ministry for mothers, and to celebrate and support the early years of motherhood from pregnancy through kindergarten. We desire you to personally know the deep love of God through Jesus Christ.
