Mothers of Preschoolers

What is MOPS and MOMSNext?

MOPS stands for Mothers Of Preschoolers, an international program that is a positive & caring network designed to nurture mothers with children from conception through kindergarten. MOPS recognizes that these years are foundational & are filled with unique experiences and needs. MOMSNext is an extension to MOPS for moms of kids through age 18.

Is MOPS/MOMSNext for you?

If you are a Mom who…

  1. is pregnant or has a child aged newborn through 18…
  2. loves making new friends over food, fellowship, and fun activities…
  3. wants to share the joys & challenges of motherhood at every stage…
  4. has frazzled nerves screaming for some “mommy” time…

…then YES, MOPS is definitely for you!

What happens at a MOPS/MOMSNext meeting?

First Baptist Church MOPS and MOMSNext meets jointly every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, September through May, 6:30 to 8:30 pm. We are located in the multi-purpose room (400) of the First Baptist Church of Richland at 1107 Wright St., Richland WA. See a map with our location. We start with coffee, announcements, and more importantly, DESSERT! Next, we usually have a fun creative activity followed by a speaker or video whose topics range from the informational, the inspirational, to the entertaining! A round table discussion follows, and lots of time for chatting.

Where are my children?

We have temporarily suspended our MOPS Kids program, and will be meeting with adults only. If lack of childcare is preventing you from joining our MOPS group, please contact us for options.
