Mothers of Preschoolers at Blacksburg United Methodist Church is a group of moms that encourage and support one another through the many challenges and joys that come along with being a Mom. 

Don't let the name fool you, even though it's called mothers of preschoolers, the BUMC MOPS branch is open to moms of more than just preschoolers!  Any mom who has at least one child under the age of 5 (including moms who are currently expecting a baby) are invited to join us.

We meet one or two Mondays a month during the school year, from 9:30-11:45 in the Christian Life Center. We begin our time with breakfast and a devotional and then hear from a speaker or do activities that relate to our theme.

While the moms are enjoying their time together, our children enjoy the MOPPETS program. The children are grouped by age and learn about God's love through variety of activities including crafts, free play, music and story times, all under the supervision of energetic and compassionate caregivers- generally students from Virginia Tech.  

In addition to our meetings, we also have Mom's Night Out evenings and family dinners.
