MOPSMOPS provides a community for Mothers of Preschoolers, along with older mentor moms, who meet to help equip young moms and embrace the journey of motherhood together.

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19

Welcome to East Sunshine MOPS! MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, an international faith-based community that strives to meet the needs of moms with children from birth through kindergarten. MOPS groups meet regularly all over the world to celebrate the joys of motherhood and to encourage each other through the challenges. MOPS also provides opportunities for social outings throughout the year.

We meet the first and third Thursdays of every month, September through May, from 9:00-11:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room.   We’re glad you stopped by to check us out! Whether you’re a current member of our group, a newcomer, or just want to know what’s going on, this is the place to get all the information you need.

We are “bravely” heading into the 2014-2015 MOPS year by chartering our first ever MOPS group and we’re really excited about the theme, “Be You, Bravely.” We have a dedicated team that works hard to create quality meetings that meet your needs as a mother. Whether we are hearing from an educated speaker, doing a service project for the community, or crafting something fun for ourselves, our group offers you an escape from the daily routine of parenting so you can just be you, with a cup of coffee or tea, or whatever you please!
