We are on a mission to celebrate motherhood.
We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the Sacramento area to a community of women who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom.
This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.
What is MOPS & MOMSnext?
MOPS is open to ANY mother of children, birth through kindergarten.
- When you're wading though diapers and sleepless nights
- When all of your kid's needs are on you
- When you're isolated and in need of community and support
MOMSnext is open to ANY mother of school-aged children (1st-12th grade)
- When we’re past the diaper years and sleeping through the night…
- When we’re meeting more emotional needs than physical ones…
- When our kids are transitioning from dependance to independence
While we all meet together, you will be seated at a table specific to the stage of motherhood you find yourself in. If you happen to be in both stages of motherhood, let us know which group you would like to sit with when you register.
Who can be in MOPS & MOMSnext?
Moms - if you are pregnant or have kids birth through school-aged MOPS & MOMSnext is for you. Stepmom, adoptive mom, birth mom, foster mom, working mom, stay at home mom - all types of moms are welcome!

What does a MOPS & MOMSnext gathering look like?
We meet bi-weekly on Thursdays from 9:30-12:00. There are about 60 women in our group; every mom has a table of about 8 women that they sit with each week so you have the chance to build great friendships. These tables all have a Mentor Mom- a mom with grown kids, who is there to be a listening ear and support to you in this amazing season of life.
Each table of women takes turns bringing brunch to share with the other tables, your table will bring brunch only once or twice a semester, all the other weeks you get a fabulous brunch that you didn't have to cook or clean up after! After brunch we have time either having an activity and craft, or hearing from a guest speaker or a MOPS International speaker video. Some of the topics that our guest speakers cover range from parenting and marriage, finances and health, self-care, friendship and many other topics relevant to your mom life.
While you are at MOPS & MOMSnext, children ages 5 months - Kindergarten are gathered in age specific, preschool style classes with caring, trained, background checked childcare workers. Newborn - 5 months are welcome to stay in the room with their moms. And don’t worry if you homeschool…we have that taken care of! A homeschool classroom is available for your children.
Our main goal in our weekly gathering is for you to find support, encouragement and friendship with other moms as you face the challenges and joys of motherhood together - you don't have to do this alone.
