Cornerstone

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is a group of women who meet regularly to share knowledge and wisdom while providing support and encouragement to one another.

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. As an international organization in over 35 countries, MOPS is committed to making better moms to make a better world. MOPS is where mothers of children, from birth to Kindergarten and those who are pregnant or preparing to foster or adopt, can find resources and support in the context of friendship and community.

MOPS Events

MOPS meets every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Friday morning of the school year at Cornerstone. Moms can drop off their children in the childcare rooms starting at 9:30, giving them plenty of time to connect with the childcare workers and get to the meeting room at 9:45 when the program begins. Each meeting begins with a brunch buffet and devotional and is followed by some prompted journaling and a brief table discussion. The program continues with a guest speaker, craft, service project, or heart-to-heart discussion, which ends by 11:45, giving everyone enough time to pick up children by 12:00. Monthly Mom’s Night Out events and Park Meet-Ups are announced at each meeting and email reminders are sent to those on the MOPS West LA mailing list.
