Welcome to Fredericksburg MOPs & MOMS Next

Fredericksburg MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers) and MOMS Next is a diverse group women from around the Fredericksburg area. Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together in their own neighborhoods and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time. We welcome Moms with children of all ages: MOPs Kids cares for babies and preschool aged children, while our Moms Next members have school-aged children.

Our MOPs/Moms Next group meets the 1st and 3rd Friday's, from October to May at the historic downtown Fredericksburg United Methodist Church. Meetings will run from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Ask about our childcare availability.

In order to live To the Full this year, let’s:
Have More Fun: Fun is often the first thing to go when life gets hectic because it seems frivolous and extravagant. This year we are going to remember that we can still have fun even when life is hard. We are going to let the laundry wait and build a fort with our kids. We’ll stop waiting until everything on our to-do list is finished until we have fun, and do one 
thing a month just because it makes us happy. This is our year to remember what it feels like to enjoy ourselves. 

Fear Less: No more fearing what people might think or say. No more letting fear paralyze us or concern about the future rob us of the present. At any given moment, there is courage inside of each of us that may be lying dormant. This year we’ll bring it to life. We’ll change our ways of thinking, calm our anxiety, and surrender our need to control. This is the year of faith over fear, and abundance over scarcity. 

Find Our People: This year we’ll meet our neighbors, learn the name of the cashier at the grocery store, and invite our MOPS table over for dinner. We need our people, and they need us. Maybe it means asking someone we respect to be our mentor, or perhaps it means marching in a parade, throwing 
candy and inviting other moms to MOPS. Finding our people takes some vulnerability, but it will also mean being known, belonging, and helping others feel the same. Life to the full happens best with people by our side.
