Mothers Of PreSchoolers or 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! MOPS recognizes that the years from infancy through kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship and are filled with unique needs. MOPS helps moms through relationships established in the context of local groups that provide a caring atmosphere for today's mother of young children.
Mothers of PreSchoolers is a great way to get involved in your community. This ministry realizes your primary goal is rasing your child; however, in addition to focusing on family, we focus on growing a Christ lead community. The MOPS Ministry at Lakeside focus on four goals. These goals include: Celebrating motherhood, Meeting needs, Making Connections, and Experiencing God’s love...through relationships and resources.
