A ministry of New Hope Presbyterian Church, MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) of Fort Myers is a network of women dedicated to the message that “Better Moms Make a Better World.” MOPS celebrates motherhood and helps moms to be better moms through trusted resources and supportive relationships. Because mothers of young children need support and encouragement, MOPS is designed to nurture expectant mothers and mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten. The women are of many ages and backgrounds but share the same desire — to be the best mothers they can be. Our vision for MOPS of New Hope is that we will be a community of mothers drawing near to each other, to Christ, and to a church home.

MOPS of New Hope meetings focus on moms. It’s a time for you, a time to relax and unwind with others going through the same journey in life: motherhood. Each meeting includes light breakfast, fellowship time, devotional, and may include any of the following:

  • A speaker to discuss practical and/or inspirational topics
  • Small group discussion time
  • Creative activities and/or service projects

Always provided is a warm and supportive environment where moms are nurtured socially and spiritually.
