MOMSnext | Mothers of School-Aged Children
If you are out of the diapers phase of raising little ones and have at least one child from first grade to high-school, MOMSnext is for you! All the benefits of MOPS are included in this expanded group, which meets with MOPS during the day and with MOPS After Dark in the evening. You decide which time works best for your busy schedule. As children move into school, new challenges and issues arise such as friendships, bullying, relationships with teachers, Internet safety, changing emotions and bodies. This group will tackle important topics relevant to raising older kids, as well as supporting each other through this next stage of parenting.
If your children are older and you are looking for an opportunity to give back to younger mothers, then consider joining MOPS as a Mentor Mom. You will help encourage and support members of MOPS (After Dark) and MOMSnext by holding babies, providing advice and prayer and simply being available to listen to the worries and questions all moms go through on their parenting journey.
If you love children and want to support MOPS, we encourage you to work or volunteer as a caregiver for our members' babies and children during meetings. A Christian curriculum and space for indoor and outdoor play is provided. Giving our members the opportunity to take a couple hours away from the demands of parenting to be among other mothers is vital to the success of MOPS.
