The purpose of MOPS and MomsNext is to encourage, equip, and develop every mother to realize her potential as a woman, mother, and leader!  Pregnant mothers and mothers with children ages birth through the school age years are welcome!  

MOPS provides a welcome break—to make new friends and to know that you are not the only mom experiencing the struggles and joys of raising children. A typical MOPS meeting includes an informal time of food and adult conversation filled with plenty of gab time and a craft. Childcare is provided during our meetings so that every mother can attend.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday evenings of each month September through May from 6:00pm -8:15pm. Childcare is provided and begins at 5:45pm. Play groups, moms nights outs and Summer activities are available making any time of year a great time to join us! Moms from all denominations from the community are welcome.
