What to expect
VFC MOPS exists to provide a place for all mothers to experience a loving and accepting environment intended to encourage, equip and develop them as moms of preschoolers. We hope for everyone to realize her potential as a woman, friend, and mother while enjoying laughter, community and encouragement in the journey. Members of MOPS do not have to be church members.
Mentor Moms at each table share their knowledge and wisdom while offering encouragement through discussion group involvement. We invite guest speakers to share information, challenge and encouragement that is relevant to us as women and mothers at this stage in their lives.
During the meeting, there will be time to discuss in small groups the subject of the meeting. Moms will have the opportunity to ask and answer questions. At some meetings, women get the opportunity to explore their crafty sides with a creative activity provided by VFC MOPS.
Play dates, Moms Night Out's, and family fun events are also part of the MOPS experience.
Who can come?
We've all been placed in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world. We know we mother better together, so all moms are welcome at MOPS. From the time you get pregnant to when your kiddo is in Kindergarten, our doors are open.
For the kids
Childcare is provided at the church through the MOPPETS program. We provide a fun, nurturing environment for children to play and learn while moms take a well-deserved break to connect with each other.
Childcare is located in the Preschool Hallway of Vaughn Forest Church. It is close enough to get to in an emergency and far enough away to enjoy your time with your fellow moms.
If your child has a special need or allergy, please let their MOPPETS teacher know. We do not provide childcare for school-aged children.
Your new babies are welcome in MOPS meetings through the age of six months, though you may place them in the nursery at any age. After six months, we request that you transition your child to the nursery where he or she will receive quality care and attention. You will be called if needed. As a nursing mom, feel free to bring your nursing infant into the meeting to nurse as you feel comfortable. There is also space available in the nursery to nurse your child.
If your child is struggling and needs to be picked up from MOPPETS at any time, please refrain from bringing him or her into the meeting until the speaker has finished.
