Whether you're expecting your first child, have a baby, toddler, or your youngest is in kindergarten, MOPS is for you! MOPS, or Mothers of Preschoolers, is an international organization with local groups that reflect the faith community where it is hosted. In our group here at HNOJ, you will find friends, mentors, speakers, and activities all focused on helping you be the mom and woman you were created to be. 

MOPS @ HNOJ believes in developing a fellowship of moms who support one another. We meet in small groups throughout the school year. We also plan events together, like Moms' Nights Out, service activities, and family gatherings. We believe that we can do more as the hands of Christ together than individually. Therefore, we organize service activities to reach our broader community.

MEETING TIMES: September through May
Two Thursday evenings each month from 7-9 p.m.

COST: $100; which includes the MOPS International Membership and all meeting costs (service projects, craft supplies, and speaker fees).

If you are not currently a Mother of a Preschooler but would like to be involved in the ministry, we may have a place for you! We welcome Mentor Moms and childcare helpers. Email us for more information.


When you’re past the diaper years and sleeping through the night… 
When your meeting more emotional needs than physical ones… 
When you are stuck between your children needing you and not… 
It’s time for  MOMSnext.

As kids grow, moms can lose themselves as their lives begin to revolve around their school-aged children. Our  MOMSnext tribe offers tools and support to equip moms to build better families so they can send their kids out into the world with confidence. At MOMSnext, we build circles of women who shape you, ground you, teach you, and encourage you. It’s a place to remember who you are and discover who you are becoming.

MOMSnext is intended for moms with their oldest child in at least 1st grade through high school.


When: September through May, 2nd and 4th Thursdays, 9:15-11:15 a.m.

Cost: $75.
