What is MOPS & MOMSnext?
Leland MOPS (Mothers Of Preschoolers) consists of a group of women committed to helping each other navigate through the world of motherhood. Our group is part of MOPS International who’s mission is to encourage, equip and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ. Generally, we meet once or twice a month (please see schedule below), and provide childcare through the Moppets and nursery program. MOPS is for mothers that are pregnant or have children up to age 5.
MOMSnext is taking MOPS to the next level. It is a ministry to mothers of school-age kids. A MOMSnext group is an open, accepting place for all mothers of school-age kids to come, just as they are, to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help and spiritual hope.
What Can You Expect?
At Leland MOPS you can expect to be welcomed into a warm and friendly environment. Even if you don’t know another mom at the meeting, you will feel like you’ve always belonged.
You will find no judgements. Real talk is liberating. It frees us from assumptions that we are alone in our struggles. We value taking a risk and sharing your story in order to heal someone else from their isolation.
You can expect to eat! Each time we meet we have a pot luck dinner or dinner is provided for the MOPS/MOMS Next groups and the MOPPETS! You will not go home hungry!
You can release your inner Pinterest! Each meeting we try to do one crafty project or activity that ties in that evenings discussions. Not only is it fun, but most often we do something that we will actually use in our everyday lives.
