God doesn't want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible. 2 Tim 1:7
WELCOME! MOPS (Mothers of PreSchoolers) and MOPS Next is an international organization for all moms of infants to 12th grade (expectant women, too!). MOPS provides an opportunity to meet other moms in the area and enjoy the journey of motherhood together! We meet on a regular basis to socialize, share struggles, laugh, and learn how to become better mommies and grow as women.
What makes MOPS unique? MOPS isn't just another playgroup. We do so much more than just socialize and have fun (though we do have lots of that!) MOPS seeks to equip you to become the best mom and woman you can be through a strong support network of women who are in the same stage of motherhood as you are, through relevant speakers and discussions catered to meet the unique needs of mothers of young children.
OUR MEETINGS Our group meets on two (2) Thursday's of each month; from 9:30-11:30 AM, and includes breakfast (yum!) Once a month we listen to a speaker (topics vary month to month) and once a month make a craft together (that we get to start and finish without any interruptions and with no mess to clean up!) Each meeting includes social time, as well as discussion time to talk and get to know each other on a more personal level.
CHILDCARE Childcare is available for children ages 0-6 (Kindergarteners). Newborns up to six months are welcome to stay with you during the meeting or make use of the loving nursery. Fees for childcare will be announced soon.
Children enjoy a fun program called MOPPETS. This is a curriculum with stories, crafts, and snacks and offers a fun, engaging environment for your preschooler.
Each childcare worker goes through a background check and is trained to ensure that your child is in the best of hands. The childcare is just downstairs (nursery even closer next to the meeting space) so you can be reached easily if your child needs you!
