What does my membership fee cover?

 Our annual membership fee is $35. Included in this
fee is an annual membership to MOPS
international, which includes the items pictured
here: MomSense Magazine, Weekly Mom-E-Mail,
MOPS Reusable Shopping Bag, and more.

Again this year we have an optional fee. To offset the burden of making an entrée before a meeting we are offering an optional $20 fee per semester to cover the cost of dinner at our evening meetings. If you choose not to pay the additional cost, then you will want to eat dinner before you come to the MOPS meeting.  We are excited to continue this part of our meetings and we hope it makes it easier for our moms to attend.

Scholarships are available for those moms who are enduring a financial hardship. For more information, or to fill out a confidential scholarship form, please email us at
