Mops/Moms next

Do you want to be the best Mom possible? Do you want a place to be real and honest? Do you want to be with other moms who understand what you’re going through? Then MOPS and MOMSnext is the place for you!

MOPS is for moms with children birth through Kindergarten MOMSnext is for moms with children in grade school and beyond. Both groups are a dynamic, inviting environment where women can come just as they are to build friendships, be encouraged by each other and gain practical parenting strategies. Moms get together to share food, laughter and to hear inspiring speakers. While moms are in our MOPS meetings, their children are lovingly cared for in the MOPS Kids program. Please note that there is no MOPS Kids program for MOMSnext. You will experience authentic community, mothering support, personal growth and spiritual hope, all to help you be the best mom possible.

The theme for this year for both group is Free Indeed. Here’s a little bit about what we’ll discussing:


What do you long for? What is the thing that your heart craves? Is it possible that your deepest desire is to be free?

    Free from worry.

    Free from feeling stuck.

    Free from hustling to be loved.

    Free from a heaviness you can’t put your finger on.

    Free from thinking you should be someone other than exactly who you are.

   At the core, maybe what we are all longing for is to be Free Indeed.


Choosing freedom is a deeply spiritual act, one that our souls long for. That is why this year, we choose wild, unexpected freedom; the kind that brings more laughter and less worry, more contentment and less hustle. Freedom that is so contagious, the people around us are compelled toward their own liberation. In order to unfold our wings this year, we will … Let Love Be the Loudest Voice, Be Gutsy and Go First. 

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19
