Welcome to URBC MOPS in Palm Desert, CA!
What is MOPS?
If you're an expectant mom, or have children, infant through school age, MOPS or MOMSnext is the place for you. MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a program designed to nurture mothers who have children from infancy through Preschool. Whether you're expecting your first child, in the process of adopting, have a baby, toddler, or preschoolers ... MOPS is for you!
Our MOMSnext group is for moms with school-age children and meets at the same time and place as our MOPS group. Here, you will find friends, mentors, speakers, and activities all focused on helping you be the mom and woman you want to be.
We are a non-denominational, Christian organization open to ALL mothers. Mothers of young children often feel isolated or alone and depression and stress are common. URBC MOPS offers an uninterrupted meal, hot coffee, meaningful adult conversation, the opportunity to learn and create new things—all while your children are being cared for in our MOPPETS program. We are an accepting group of women where moms can share questions and concerns, get advice, meet for playgroups and more!
Starting Friday, January 11th, 2019 URBC MOPS will meet once a month on the first Friday during the school year at Upper Room Bible Church. Meetings run from 9:00am – 11:30am Each meeting starts with time to relax and enjoy a brunch with other moms.
What To Expect
Our MOPS/MOMSNEXT meetings include practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations, and videos. Plus, there's always food... food you didn't make! But more important, you'll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood.

For The Kids
The MOPPETS program is a preschool-style experience your kiddos will love during the meetings so each mom can focus on herself during those two hours.
Ages newborn - 5 years are welcome for MOPPETS.
In MOPPETS, children are provided with a snack, games, lessons, crafts, and lots of love! Each MOPPETS classroom is lead and planned by the same devoted leaders and assistants each session.
