MOPs (Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers) 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. MOPS groups can help! We are a MOPs group that meets at Trinity Covenant Church in Manchester, CT on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month during the school year and at area parks during the summer.
