Our job as Moms continues to grow and change as our children get older. We still need support from other women in the same stage of mothering. This MOMSnext2 group for Middle and High School (grades 6-12), recognizes the difference and wants to encourage you in it.
A MOMSnext2 group is an open, accepting place for all mothers of high-school age kids to come, just as they are, to experience authentic community, personal growth, practical help, and spiritual hope. MOMSnext2 will encourage, equip, and develop moms in the next phase of mothering.
All of these groups exist to encourage and equip mothers in every stage of mothering. Each group is chartered through MOPS International and sponsored by McLean Bible Church at Loudoun.
Our meetings start with a time of socializing and refreshments. Most meetings feature an engaging speaker on a topic relevant to us as mothers, women, or wives. Then we end with small group discussion. Every woman is assigned to a small group of 8-10 women.
Who can participate in the MOMSnext 2 group?
Any mom who has at least one child in grades 6-12.
Do I need to register?
Yes, registration is required. See below.
Can I just come and see if I like it?
Yes, the first meeting is free and then you may register afterwards for future meetings.
Are there fees?
Yes, the fee for 2015-2016 is $55 after September 1, 2015. Read about registration below.
May I bring my children?
No, we do not offer childcare.
I'm already in MOPS or MOMSnext (for K-5), may I attend the Jr/Sr School one too?
Yes, as long as you have one child in grades 6-12, you are welcome to come. Do keep in mind that we meet at the same time on the same nights. Read below about registering for more than one group as you may be eligible for a discount.
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself to the first meeting. We will alternate bringing snacks and desserts to share.
If you plan to join multiple groups within the "MOPS family" (i.e., MOPS, MOMSnext or MOMSnext 2) this year at the MBC Loudoun campus (or any other church), then you are eligible to receive a discount on the additional group(s) joined.* If this applies to you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your promo code used during registration. Discount is only applied to the secondary group(s) joined.
*Since MOPS, MOMSnext and MOMSnext2 are all under the umbrella of MOPS International, a portion of all registration fees are sent directly to MOPS International as membership dues. This amount is only paid once to the MOPS International organization no matter how many groups you join.
Online registration for the 2015-2016 year is open! (See above about the discount for joining multiple groups before registering.) The registration fee is $55 per year after September 1, 2015. The fee helps cover the cost of your membership with MOPS International, as well as speakers, activities, and more!
