MOPS is for any mom (of any religious background) with one or more children ages birth through kindergarten. MOPS is for Mommy-time! Moms socialize while their children are in on-site childcare. Speakers, activities, and small group discussions are planned to encourage and equip moms. We love helping moms get connected at ACC!

MOPPETS is a loving and learning experience for children ages 3 months thru kindergarten. Classroom ratios are 2 children per worker for infants, 3 children per worker for 1s & 2s, and 4-5 children per worker for 3s, 4s & 5s.
Children, together with experienced and mature teachers, get to make & create, hear stories, sing songs, eat snacks, make new friends, and most of all have lots of fun!
The mother of each child needs to stay on the premises. Please find outside childcare for any daycare children or kids above kindergarten. We will be accepting home-schooled children only if we have MOPPETS workers to accommodate.
Due to the difficulty of finding enough MOPPETS workers, each registered mom will be required to work at at one MOPS-related meeting or choose to pay an opt-out fee (to cover a paid worker).
PLEASE NOTE: Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Some of the MOPPETS groups fill up prior to the first meeting date. Please register as soon as possible to ensure a spot for you and/or your children and avoid being placed on a waiting list. REGISTRATION IS COMPLETE WHEN $30 REGISTRATION FEE (non-refundable) HAS BEEN PAID.
ONLINE registration this year!
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED

What to Expect
What do we do?
We have a specially planned program designed to give moms of young children a much-needed break from their kids and to encourage them in their important roles of being moms. We believe that one of the best ways to help families experience all the love and blessings God can bring into their lives, is by encouraging moms during the child-rearing rears when their children are so heavily dependent on them.
What to Expect
Try to arrive by 9:10am so you have time to find which room(s) to take your child(ren) to. Children ages 2 and under will be on the main floor childcare area, while the 4 and 5 year olds will be upstairs in the "Uptown Kidz" area. Three year olds could be downstairs or upstairs depending on the number of kids in each age group, so check downstairs first.
Moms check in at a registration desk by the entrance to the Manor. You will be assigned a table to sit at for each meeting with a Discussion Group Leader and a Mentor Mom (an experienced grandma to encourage you on your journey as a mom). This table will be yours for the whole year and will give you the opportunity to get to know 7 to 9 other moms really well. You will do activities together, share ideas, ask for prayer and encouragement, and plan social get-togethers outside of MOPS.
If you've never been to MOPS, please come visit one of our meetings for FREE.
We'd love to meet you!
