1st and 3rd Fridays  |  Sept - May

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a dynamic program designed to nurture mothers with children from infancy through kindergarten. MOPS exists to meet the needs of every mom in this stage of life, who share a desire to be the very best moms they can be! MOPS encourages women by offering resources and speakers who instruct in topics pertinent to their roles as wives, mothers, and women in the community. While mothers are being nurtured at MOPS, their children are cared for in our MOPS kids program just down the hall. During the summer, MOPS hosts play dates and Mom’s Nights Out.


9:15am  |  Venue 2
Varying Fridays  |  Sept - May (generally 2nd and 4th)

MOMSnext is for moms of kindergartners through 12th graders, and exists to meet the needs of moms managing the ups and downs of motherhood during the school-age years. MOMSnext supports moms by focusing on the unique challenges arising during this phase of life. Topics will be covered over a series of meetings, allowing for in-depth discussion and personal growth. Our meetings and discussions will focus on time management, parenting, marriage and more. MOMSnext provides an amazing network of friends and a wonderful group of encouraging, fellow moms. During the summer and all throughout the year, MOMSnext hosts get togethers and Mom’s Nights Out because sometimes we just need some girl time. Even though raising children doesn’t come with instructions, we don’t have to go through the journey of motherhood alone. Childcare is available for a fee, if needed.

Interested in registering for MOPS or MOMSnext?

Please contact us for information.

If you’re not sure which group to join because you have children that fall into each age group, please contact us and we will work together to determine the group that will best fulfill your needs.

Prayer and Mentoring Ministry is one of support and encouragement. By reaching out with God’s love in fellowship and prayer, we help meet the needs of our sisters in Christ and witness the changing of hearts and lives through the Holy Spirit. Because we are called into relationship with one another, when we give of ourselves, we not only enrich each other’s lives, we enrich our own.

Prayer partnerships connect two women for six months to become women of prayer. We will meet once a month on Saturday mornings as a group to talk about different aspects of prayer and how to build our relationship to the Lord and our prayer partner. A few of the subjects to be covered are: building your faith, praying Scripture, intercessory prayer, listening to God, and spiritual warfare. At the same time, the ladies will meet separately to support and encourage each other through fellowship and prayer.

The Mentoring ministry will provide on-going, in-depth mentor training. A Mentor is paired with a Merea (Hebrew word for a huggable friend). They will meet weekly for a deeper one-on-one relationship as the Mentor looks for what God is already doing in the Merea’s life and works to encourage and equip her as she follows Him.

For Spouses of Sexually Broken Men


E-mail Journey


JOURNEY is a community of women who have all experienced betrayal and loss as a result of their spouses’ struggle with life-dominating sexual sin. Journey Women have an opportunity to grieve with others who identify with their pain, and begin to break free from harmful and distorted patterns of thinking.

Learn how to set boundaries that guard your heart, thoughts, and behaviors, and allow God to use authentic relationships to heal and transform you from the inside out. Journey's core curriculum addresses relevant issues helping women reconnect with God in a time of daily devotion. Journey is about relationships with God and other believers who help women walk through this life with grace and truth, no matter what choices their spouses may make along the way.

We look forward to getting to know you and walking with you on your journey. To find out more or to join the group, email us at »
