Our Ministry at North Gwinnett MOPS
At North Gwinnett MOPS, relationships offer hope to moms, especially as moms go deeper and take risks to create authentic community. All facets of relationships can be strengthened through taking risks, going deeper and showing authentic love– neighborhood, friendships, marriages, extended families, the world around us and ultimately our relationships with God.
We strive at North Gwinnett MOPS to create a safe and personal environment where every mom realizes her beauty and importance. We also offer wonderful resources so that every mom has someone to lean on through the good times and the hard times.
The History of MOPS
Eight women. The number was small, but the need was great. The first MOPS meeting took place in February 1973 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. For two hours, while their children received care, these mothers talked, laughed, ate, passed a basket for childcare expenses, had a craft demonstration and ended with a short devotional. In this humble beginning, the seeds of the MOPS concept and format were planted. Through friendship, creative outlets, and instruction, the women began to understand that “mothering matters.” Today, the same needs for significance are met in much the same way in MOPS groups across the United States and around the world.
What is a MOPS Group?
MOPS groups are communities that strive to meet the needs of every mom with children from birth through kindergarten. MOPS recognizes that urban, suburban, and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single, and married moms all share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be.
Are We divided into smaller groups?
Yes, the large group is divided into smaller tables of approximately eight women each. These small groups foster a more intimate setting where you can actively engage in getting to know the women at your table well.

What can I expect at a MOPS meeting?
Our MOPS meetings are geared toward giving you the opportunity to walk away feeling refreshed both personally, socially, creatively and spiritually.
Our meetings begin with breakfast, then you are given time to chat with your table and the bulk of our meeting is centered around out Theme topic, speaker topic, or a craft.
While our meetings are very structured, the environment is very relaxed and laid back. Come as you are and enjoy yourself!
