MOPS & MOMSnext
We are excited for another year of MOPS!
Our theme this year is “Decide to Rise”. What a perfect theme for our current times.
We are offering a morning and evening option this year and would love to have you join us for both! If you are not able to do both, feel free to pick the option that works best for you!
Caring for preschoolers (birth through kindergarten), and guiding these little souls is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms locally to meet together to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of motherhood. You don’t have to struggle through the challenges alone. Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) is open to all women who desire encouragement, friendship with other moms, and a nudge closer to Jesus. This is motherhood, and together with God we can change the world in all the best ways!
This group serves mothers of school-age kids (kindergarten through teen), providing community that grows with them as they mother. Every year, mothers leave MOPS. Some graduate (they no longer have preschoolers) while others leave with a foot in both worlds as their oldest ventures off to school.
MOMSnext is MOPS—the brand and values are the same, but the needs of the mom have changed. Instead of discussions about potty training and sleepless nights, MOMSnext moms need to talk about other topics, such as partnering with teachers and navigating their children’s increased freedoms on the internet, in the neighborhood, and at home. We’re here to encourage and serve you just as we did in MOPS.
Morning MOPS Connect:
On the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month from 9:30-11:00 starting on October 5th we will offer MOPS Connect. MOPS Connect is a time to connect, play, and hear about Jesus with moms and their kids in our church parking lot until weather moves us into the gym. Food will be provided.

We are also offering a traditional MOPS in the evening from 7-9 pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month starting on October 12th. Evening Mops will be a time to connect with your table, pray with your Mentor mom, and listen to great speakers on how to grow in your faith and grow as a mother. Food will be provided.

The program fee covers the required MOPS/MOMSnext international membership for you and our mentor moms, our creative activities, snacks for you and your kids, a few meals for our new mothers, hospitality supplies, and speakers for the year.
Please note: Morning MOPS Connect is not providing childcare this year. But we will have some organized Mommy & Me activities for your kids and you to participate in each morning.
If you have financial constraints, please contact Char Peterson at email@example.com about scholarships or alternative payment plans. In the email please include your full name and number and how much you can pay toward MOPS. MOPS/MOMSnext should be a blessing to you and your family, not a burden.
