Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together in their own neighborhoods and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time.
Our acronym stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers” because we began in 1973 when a group of moms of young children banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. Over the past 45 years, MOPS has expanded our reach to include moms with older kids, partnering with churches and organizations worldwide to equip and encourage moms in more than 60 countries.

Who is mops for?

MOPS is for ALL MOMS! Working, stay-at-home, single, married, first baby on the way, mother of 19, adopted children, biological children, or step-child(ren). If you are a mom with at least one child between birth and kindergarten or pregnant, MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) is for You! MOPS is a time for fellowship with other moms in the same stage of life and learning strategies and tips that will help us be the best moms we can be. Children are cared for in their own separate program with age appropriate activities. We also offer opportunities for moms' nights out, playgroups and other fun activities.

When do we meet? 

OSL MOPS meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month from 9:30-11:30 am. We meet in the lower level of Our Shepherd Lutheran Church 2225 E. 14 Mile Rd., Birmingham, MI 48009 (on the north side of 14 mile Rd between Woodward and Coolidge).
