Most come to the YMCA looking for health, community, support and programs for children. Jess Mease realized
the values of MOPS and the YMCA complimented each other beautifully,
so she started a group in that very space to support her fellow sojourners in the messy and beautiful journey of motherhood.
“Isn’t it beautiful that the YMCA’s vision for healthy ‘mind, body and spirit’ go hand-in-hand with the Church’s vision for holistic, fruitful living and that MOPS supports each of those things specifically for women?” Her ultimate hope for this unlikely MOPS group is to create a space to welcome moms in, among friends, and act as a starting point for women to continue or being exploring who Jesus is. “It has been a beautiful thing to watch our church, MOPS group and the YMCA all benefit from and feed into each other.”
