Membership Dues and Requirements

We are delighted that you are interested in joining our group!  Interest in our group has grown substantially over the past several years, and we have reached the maximum number of members that the MOPS Kids (nursery) program at SFUMC can accommodate.  Therefore, all moms that require childcare during our meetings are being placed on a waiting list.  If you do not require childcare during the meetings, you are welome to join our group at any time.
In either case, our group has implemented the following membership requirements to ensure we retain a committed group of moms ready to make Smyrna First MOPS a success:
  • Membership in the group is open to current members first.
  • Membership is guaranteed with an UP FRONT PAYMENT of $175 if you require childcare or $100 if you do not require childcare. This fee includes your MOPS international registration fee, as well as your nursery and meeting fees for the entire year. The payment may be broken into two installments, payable at the start of each new semester.
  • Members are required to volunteer for at least one fundraising shift.  The group holds two major fundraisers during the year to help absorb costs.
Please send all membership inquiries directly to the MOPS Coordinator.  Be sure to include your name, contact information, and the names and birthdates of your children.
Do not be discouraged if you are placed on the waiting list after your initial inquiry.  Our waiting list moms are regularly added to the group as spots often open up during the year.
