The purpose of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) of Village Seven Presbyterian Church is to provide an evangelistic ministry for women where they meet Christ personally and grow in spiritual maturity through opportunities for creative expression, development of friendships, and practical Bible teaching so that they may glorify God.
"The closeness and fllowshiip keeps me going. I love the energy with this group."

"Time with other moms is just wonderful - it builds up our spirits and makes us better wives and moms."
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a program designed to nurture mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten. It is an international ministry devoted to the message: Better Moms Make a Better World! Moms attend MOPS groups to experience authentic friendship, receive mothering support, and to grow personally and spiritually. Since 1973, MOPS International has served millions of mothers of preschoolers in thousands of local MOPS groups across the U.S. and in 33 countries internationally. The women are of many ages and backgrounds, but share the same desire -- to be the best mothers they can be.
The mission of Village Seven Presbyterian Church is to be a life giving church to Colorado Springs, the West, and the World. Village Seven is also clear in its values – worship, teaching, nurture, reaching.
In pursuit of this mission, we desire to be a community of God’s people that are defined by three characteristics: 1) Gospel-based community, 2) an authentic community, and 3) a missionary community. There is much overlap between these three. As people understand the gospel, they will become more authentic in their relationships, and more missional in their living. At the same time, as people live in community and live with a sense of mission, it will drive them back to the gospel. Therefore, in order to achieve one, we must aim at all three.
