MOPS/Moms Next



MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers and serves moms of children from birth to kindergarten. MOMs Next serves moms of school age children. 

MOPS, International was started many years ago by moms who met to encourage one another along the journey of motherhood.  The goal of Waterbury MOPS and MOMs Next is to support and build up moms through sharing life together.

No matter where you are in your spiritural journey, you are welcome in the MOPS or MOMs next groups!

We will begin meeting again starting Septebmer 19th and then on the first and third Thursdays of each month.  Meetings are from 6:45-8:15 pm at the Thatcher Brook Primary School Library.


 THIS YEAR’S THEME: TO THE FULL

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.
