As children enter the school years, mothers are faced with new challenges and issues, but the need for community and hope remains, for this reason MOMSnext has been added as an extension of our MOPS ministry here at FBC Midlothian.
MOMSnext is designed to encourage, equip and develop mothers of school age children. It is an open, accepting place for all mothers of school-age children to come, just as they are, to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help and spiritual hope.
All mothers, of at least one school age child (beginning in Kindergarten), are welcome to be apart of MOMSnext even if they have never attended MOPS. If you home-school your school aged children please let us know so we can see how we can accommodate them!
Why should I join MOMSnext?
MOMSnext at FBC Midlothian is built from the belief that all moms need each other. Mothers are all facing new experiences and challenges each and every day.
We are not a bible study, but a place where each mom is encouraged and supported in taking her next steps of growing in her faith – whether meeting Jesus for the first time or sharing her faith with another mom. We provide a safe and welcoming atmosphere to bring hope to the hurting places in the lives of the women next to us.
MOMSnext is MOPS. The brand and values are the same, but the needs of these moms have changed. Instead of discussions centered around potty training and sleepless nights, we talk about partnering with teachers and navigating our kids’ increasing freedoms (neighborhood, internet, and at home).
