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 also 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!
TUESDAY MORNING MOPS
MOPS at Big Valley Grace is a community of moms walking alongside and encouraging one another, while building authentic relationships needed in this crazy, ever-changing stage of life. We get to be real, offer hope, and have fun while learning from and supporting each other.
A typical MOPS meeting begins with breakfast and social time. We then move into a time of education and growth through speakers, videos, discussion in small groups and other fun activities – all while our children (birth – K) are being lovingly cared for by our amazing MOPS Kids team!
We meet September through May.
Registration for Fall 2017 opens April 25! For information on fees and how to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to pre-register, as childcare space is limited.

MONDAY EVENING MOPS
2nd & 4th Mondays
6:45-8:30pm Fireside Room
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 dinner together.
MomsNext is also offered in conjunction with Evening MOPS. If you have children in 1st grade and up, there is an evening option for you to find community as well!
We meet September through May.
Registration for Fall 2017 begins at the end of April. Join us! For more information and to pre-register, email email@example.com
Thursdays, once a month
9-11 am Fireside Room
Moms of School-Aged Children, are busy moms! Between school activities, extra-curricular activities and, for some, working too, there is little time left for friendships. We have a special MOPS-like community where you will find Mom Friends while being 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 learn from a variety of speakers and videos, have deep conversations, be encouraged as women and mothers, and leave filled up and ready to tackle all your life entails.
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.
