FAQ

What is MOPS?

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kids from birth through kindergarten (MOMSnext is for moms with kids from kindergarten to 5th grade). We know it’s a little confusing, so let’s just stick with “MOPS.” We connect moms and meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped, and to find their identity by journeying alongside one another.

Who can be in MOPS?

Beaverton MOPS is open to ANY mother of children, pregnancy through kindergarten. If you ALSO have school-age children, you can still be a member of MOPS.

Who can be in MOMSnext?

Beaverton MOMSnext is open to every mother of school-age children from kindergarten to 5th grade. MOMSnext breaks out from the main MOPS meeting a few times during the year to have speakers/videos address topics geared toward moms with older kids.

What happens at a MOPS/MOMSnext meeting?

MOPS/MOMSnext meetings are VIRTUAL this year, so we *sadly* won’t be meeting as a big group for brunch, coffee and fellowship. BUT, we can still be CONNECTED through motherhood and be a community who support each other as moms and in our faith in Jesus.

We will meet for a *LIVE* Zoom meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month with additional meeting content emailed in a newsletter on the 4th Thursday of the month. There will be opportunities for small group gatherings for those who are comfortable.

What does the registration fee cover?

MOPS International charges a membership fee of $31.95, which we pass onto our members. You will receive an amazing quarterly magazine from MOPS International with your membership! We hold fundraisers to cover remaining expenses, such as speaker fees and scholarships.

What if I need to cancel my registration?

If you need to cancel, please contact us at beavertonmops@gmail.com as soon as possible so that your spot can be opened up for another mom. Thank you!

What happens if there is a waitlist?

If there is a waitlist, please register and if spots become available, we will contact you. The waitlist is on a first come, first served basis.
