If you are a mother of a young child (ages from infancy through kindergarten), or are currently expecting your first little one, you are invited to join an amazing group of women at Buncombe Street MOPS. MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a Christian organization that helps moms get through the early years of being a mom with love, laughter, and friendship. We believe moms are world influencers and that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. MOPS groups rally women to be more honest, feel more equipped, and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another. Buncombe Street MOPS meets two mornings each month during the school year to share in the challenges and joys of motherhood. As part of MOPS meetings, we offer relevant speakers, honest conversation, and creative activities.

We are adding MOMSnext to our group. MOMSnext serves mothers of school-age kids, providing community that grows them as they mother. By building a safe and accepting community and providing growth opportunities, MOMSnext seeks to deepen mothers toward finding and sharing the renewing hope of Jesus.

Children attend their own MOPS Kids program and are cared for by thoughtfully hired caregivers. In addition to our meetings, we also have opportunities for monthly play dates and Moms Night Out events. Meetings take place during the school year, typically on the 1st and 3rd Monday morning of each month at Buncombe Street UMC from 9:30 AM until 11:30 AM in Room 217.

To reserve your spot in MOPS at our next meeting, send us an email at bsumcMOPS@yahoo.com or call 434-229-7176. Additional information about MOPS can be found at on their website at www.mops.org.

MOPS needs volunteers! If you are interested in helping support our MOPS group at Buncombe Street UMC, you can do so in two ways.

  1. First, we need volunteers to help care for the many children attending our MOPS Kids program. Click here for more information on volunteering for our MOPS Kids program.
  2. Second, if you have already lived through the season of life in which our MOPS moms are currently experiencing, you may be able to help our group as a Mentor Mom. Click here for more information and qualifications for being a Mentor Mom at MOPS.
