MOPS, or Mothers of Preschoolers, is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. MOPS also believes that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. If you are a mom of a newborn through kindergarten-aged child and desire to make the world a better place, consider joining MOPS at HNOJ.

Mops For Web MOPS meets September through May.  There are two meeting options to choose from:

  • 1st & 3rd Thursday from 9:15 - 11:15 a.m.
  • 1st & 3rd Friday from 9:15-11:15 a.m.

The cost is $100; which includes the MOPS International Membership and meeting costs, such as childcare, craft supplies, and speakers fees. When you register, MOPS  International will send you a welcome kit and Hello, Dearest magazine.

Our current year of MOPS and/or MOMSNext has begun. For more information or to register, please contact Krista Felty at

There is an evening group for moms of young children that meets the last Thursday evening of the month.  This group has a different format, is not a member of MOPS International, and is free.  To register for this group, please fill out a paper form

MomsNext is a group experience that is designed to encourage, equip and develop mothers of school-age children, providing a community of hope and friendship that grows them as they mother. By building a safe and accepting community, MomsNext seeks to deepen mothers toward finding and sharing the renewing hope of Jesus. MomsNext is a new ministry arm of MOPS, Mothers of Preschoolers, extending the current mission statement to serve more mothers as their children grow.


MomsNext will be starting at Holy Name of Jesus in September 2017!! The meetings will be held on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, with a couple of scheduled adjustments, from 9:15 to 11:15 AM. 


The cost is $75 for the year, and limited childcare spaces are available for younger siblings not in school for a small fee. The only requirement is that your oldest child be in 1st grade or older starting September 2017. Mothers with preschoolers are encouraged to check out MOPS at HNOJ.
