We're on a mission to celebrate motherhood

Mothering is hard

Let's do it together

Welcome to MOPS Ventura! We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because hugs can change the course of history. That’s why MOPS Ventura connects moms all over the county to a community of women who meet together to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of motherhood.

Great speakers share on topics like how to strengthen marriages, improve mothering skills, and explore faith. There’s also breakfast, tea, crafts, and lots of conversation!

If you’re a mom in need of encouragement and want to meet other moms, MOPS is for you! MOPS is for moms with infants thru kindergarten including expectant mommies, foster moms, and adoptive moms!

MOPS Ventura

We build a circle of women who love each other like family, because being a mom is beautiful and hard, and finding hope in the midst of colic or no sleep is life-giving. MOPS is a way to connect with women who have your back, dry your tears, and call you into new adventures. It’s a movement of women who are practicing becoming more brave, kind, and honest. This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.

MOPS Ventura - MOPS Ventura is thrilled to welcome you back to our Wednesday morning program! We meet bi-monthly on Wednesdays in The PLEX at ENCOUNTER. The program goes from 9:30 – 11 am. Sign up today to secure your spot.

MOPS Childcare Registration - Please sign up for our Childcare Waitlist to let us know you’re interested in having your children attend the Moppets program during the MOPS meetings. We are gathering kids’ ages and any needs so we can best serve our moms and children. At this time, infants will be asked to be held with you during our meetings. We will pull from the waitlist based on date they registered for priority in classes.

Second Session (9 Meetings) - Jan 17, Jan 31, Feb 14, Feb 28, Mar 13, Mar 27, Apr 10, Apr 24, May 8
