MOPS & MOMSnext at Eagle Ridge!
Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) and MOMSnext at Eagle Ridge is a place where moms gather and support each other through the challenges of motherhood. We believe that remarkable things happen when moms come together. All the while strengthening our relationships with God, family, friends, and the community.
It’s time to toss out our notions that we must do any of this alone, that it’s “too late” to create an abundantly rich group of girlfriends or that the pace of life leaves no room for meaningful connection. Instead, we’ll take in something new, something God is always using to reach out to us: deep relationships.
Having a genuine, supportive, honest group of female friends in your circle is one of the biggest times to toss out our notions that we must do any of this alone, that it’s “too late” to create an abundantly rich group of girlfriends or that the pace of life leaves no room for meaningful connection. Instead, we’ll take in something new, something God is always using to reach out to us: deep relationships.
Having a genuine, supportive, honest group of female friends in your circle is one of the biggest life upgrades. “Ran out of gas? Of course, I’ll help push your car, but we will definitely laugh about it for the next 40 years.” Friends to put down as your kids’ emergency contact at school. People who help themselves to whatever is in your pantry without asking. Someone who has witnessed your most embarrassing moment and who would never serve your kid peas because she knows it makes him gag.
If you desperately want this kind of friendship but it feels hard to come by, you’re not alone. Community is such a cliché concept, but the truth is, we are all pretty desperate for it. We know it will make our lives better, and yet finding friends as adults can feel intimidating. Despite our best efforts, we all seem to be in the midst of a loneliness epidemic–this is why we are declaring it the year of friendship, courage and purpose. Friendships where we aggressively believe in each other, pray for each other, and believe the other deserves the world. That is what we do at MOPS. If you’re ready for a community like this, you belong here. Your best days are ahead of you. We will be here cheering you on, and what you can’t do alone, we can and will do together.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV)
What Can I Expect at MOPS and MOMSnext?
Moms, need a place for fellowship, friends, and even hot coffee? Join MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and MOMSnext. This is a group for you! At each meeting you can expect to be welcomed by other moms who are just like you. Drop your kiddos off at their classroom where our volunteers will interact with them- they will play and learn. In the meantime, you get a much-needed two-hour reboot with new friends!
Each week we will have something different in store for you. Video stories, followed by discussion questions, crafts, guest speakers, service projects, and so much more. When we are not meeting up on Wednesdays, we’re planning playdates for the kids, and we also plan our much needed “Moms Night Out.”
What is MOMSnext?
MOMSnext is for moms who are beyond those preschool and toddler stages of parenting. When you are past the diaper years and are sleeping through the night, MOMSnext is for you! When you are meeting more of the emotional needs, not just the physical ones, MOMSnext is for you. When you are “caught” between your children needing you or not, it is time for MOMSnext! Our MOMSnext group will meet at the same time and place as MOPS; however, we will have materials geared towards our next stage of parenting.
