WHAT IS MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers Of PreSchoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kids from birth through kindergarten. MOMSNext is the next step for moms with school-aged kids.
MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We also believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood.
A MOPS group is an open, accepting place for all mothers to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help and spiritual hope.
ALL FOR LOVE
After a year spent hunkering down, living smaller, and experiencing a little more fear and anxiety than usual, we are declaring this is the year of going big. It's a year of fresh starts and turning ordinary experiences into extraordinary ones. Enthusiasm will replace worry. Friendship will replace loneliness. No longer will we wait to “get back to normal”; instead, we will start making space for the new things God has for us. We will become less guarded and more daring because this is our year to live All For Love.
Love is the most powerful force on the planet, and yet the concept almost seems cliché. We tell somebody we love them, and in the same breath we talk about how much we love a new podcast. Perhaps we've become so accustomed to the word that we've forgotten how revolutionary it is, how God's love changes everything. It is life-altering, curse-lifting and, as shown in Christ's resurrection, quite literally death-conquering.
This year we embrace the transformative power of love, to the point where it starts to affect everything we do—the way we talk to our kids, interact with strangers, handle disappointments, celebrate victories, make decisions. When love floods into our lives, it all shifts. It results in less doom-scrolling, more conversation. Less comparison, more community. Less fear, more confidence. More over-the-top displays of compassion. More patience. More life in our souls. This year, love will save us. In fact, it already has, because love’s name is Jesus.
