Meeting Dates

MOPS generally meets twice monthly on Friday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with child care available from 8:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.  Each meeting includes a daily devotion, brunch, small group time and a keynote speaker/video of a relevant topic to you as a woman, mom, and friend.  As a response to your request we have opted this year to have more time together as tables to discuss and share on these topics!
