MOPS and MOMSNext
Here at MOPS, we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood.
We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the Peninsula to meet together to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of motherhood.
- A group for moms with children (expecting up through high school)
- A place to form friendships
- A time to receive support and encouragement
- “Mom time”–who doesn’t need more of that?
- A place to unwind, grow, create, and have fun!
WHAT HAPPENS AT A MOPS MEETING?
During each meeting, moms will enjoy refreshments, followed by speakers with topics relevant to moms. Then, there will be a wonderful time of adult conversation, and a craft or other fun activity. It’s a great way to connect with other moms and get re-energized!
WHAT TO EXPECT
A Welcoming and Open Environment–We moms need each other. At each meeting, there will be time to get to know other moms in an accepting small group atmosphere.
Practical Help–Need some inspiration? At every meeting, there will be a speaker or video with valuable take–away teaching.
Mentoring–Meet a MOPS Mentor Mom who has been through it all and has great advice and a willing ear.

To The Full
Are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?* Sometimes we need the reminder that life is meant to be lived to the full. That it is OK to enjoy ourselves, to let our hair down, to worry less, and to really suck the marrow out of life (who even says that? I guess we do now.) Because as far as we can tell, this is exactly how God intended for us to live- fully and abundantly.
It’s easy to forget what that feels like, though. One day we’re wide-eyed and the possibilities are endless, and then slowly, without even realizing it, we find ourselves dulled by the routines and disappointments that are a part of being human. We slowly start to lose our optimism and zest for life.
In order to live life to the full this year, let’s:
Have More Fun
Fun is often the first thing to go when life gets hectic because it seems frivolous and extravagant. This year we are going to remember that we can still have fun even when life is hard.
No more fearing what people might think or say. No more letting fear paralyze us or concern about the future rob us of the present. At any given moment, there is courage inside of each of us that may be lying dormant. This year we’ll bring it to life.
Find Your People
This year we’ll meet our neighbors, learn the name of the cashier at the grocery store, and invite our MOPS table over for dinner. We need our people, and they need us. Life to the full happens best with people by our side.
Here’s to a year of living the full life. Full of fun, joy, refreshment, trust and rejuvenation.
