Community Meetings


MOPS - Mothers of Preschoolers Group coming to Grand Canyon in August

Here at MOPS, we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood.


We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own cities, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom.


This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.

Please contact Mike Scott at 207-229-1228

for more information.
