All moms with kids from pregnancy to high school aged and everything in between are welcome!

For moms, each meeting begins with snacks and an opportunity to visit. Then we hear from a speaker on a relevant topic with practical application, followed by discussion with the ladies at our table. Several times a year we have a craft or another special activity during our regular meeting time. Childcare is available in the MOPS Kids program for ages 6 months through 7 years if needed.  In between meetings we organize family outings, moms’ nights out, and other community events. Most of all, MOPS & MOMSNext at Friendswood Methodist is fun!
