MOPS & MomsNext

Chad Pippin

Every mom needs a friend….wouldn’t you agree?  Mothering is so much easier when you aren’t doing alone.  At MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), you’ll find a community of other women who just want to walk alongside you, through all our differences, and who come together on the one thing we all want – to be the best mom we can be.

We now offer another place for moms – MomsNext!  It’s part of MOPS International for moms in the next chapter of mothering, when our kids are all off to school.  Now, whether you have a newborn, toddler or tween, there is a community for you!



2nd & 4th Tuesdays
9-11am     The Venue

MOPS at Big Valley Grace strives to build the supportive relationships that moms need to survive a world of constant change – to offer hope to moms, especially as relationships go deeper and authentic community is created.

A typical MOPS meeting consists of breakfast, social time, educational and inspirational speakers, discussion in small groups and time for creative activities – all while our children (birth – K) are being lovingly cared for by our MOPPETS teachers!

We meet September through May.

Registration for Fall 2016 is open!  To register, email [email protected].  Be sure to pre-register, as childcare space is limited.

Do you work during the day, or just prefer an evening meeting time?  Evening MOPS at Big Valley Grace is the place for you!

Evening MOPS is a place for moms from all walks of life to come together for support, encouragement, relaxation and laughter. We strive to build meaningful relationships so that no mom feels alone.

Meetings provide time for moms to connect with other moms, learn from speakers, do creative activities and enjoy snacks.

Beginning Sept 2016, MomsNext will also be offered in conjunction with Evening MOPS.  If you have school-aged children, there is an evening option for you to find community as well!

We meet September through May.

Registration for Fall 2016 is open.  Join us!  For more information and to pre-register, email [email protected]

We are excited to bring a MOPS-like community to moms of school-aged children!  A place to be encouraged and equipped for a new and challenging stage of life–when the kids are in school!  If you have children in 1st grade and up, MomsNext is for you.

Meetings will be a time to hear from a variety of speakers, have deep conversations, be encouraged as women and mothers, and have a lot of fun. It’s also an opportunity to enjoy a little more flexible (kid-free) time while the kids are in school by seeking other moments for friendship and spiritual growth as we are offering an optional, off-week MomsNext Bible study.

We meet September through May, one Thursday each month, 9-11am, in the Fireside Room.  (Check out our Evening MOPS/MomsNext if you aren’t able to come to a morning meeting!)

Sorry, no childcare is available for MomsNext, however there is an option for homeschooled children.  Pre-registration is required and space is limited.

Meeting dates for 2016/2017:
