    What to expect

    A MOPS & MOMSnext meeting includes practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations and videos. Topics are anything of interest to mothers and can take the shape of guest speakers, lessons, crafts, discussion groups, or other activities. Plus, there's food... food you didn't make! But more important, you'll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood. We meet on Thursday mornings from 9 - 11 am at Faith Covenant Church. Childcare (and a snack) and breakfast for moms is provided. Meetings begin again on September 7.

    Who can come?

    We've all been placed in this time and place in history, as the tribe of women who are raising the world. We know we mother better together, so all moms are welcome at MOPS. From the time you get pregnant to when your kiddo is in Kindergarten, our doors are open.

    For the kids

    The MOPPETS program is a preschool-style experience your kiddos will love. Infant and toddler MOPPETS are watched and played with by our caring volunteers in the nursery. Preschool-aged MOPPETS are entertained and educated with a lesson, craft, snack, and playtime. All of this occurs while you (their mom) enjoys some precious child-free time with other mothers, just a room away.
