MOPS and MOMSnext
Mothers of Preschoolers
Bethlehem hosts a chapter of MOPS (pregnant moms through moms of kindergartners) and MOMSnext (moms of kindergartners through 5th grade). We meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month during the school year from 6-8 p.m. Our 2015-615 activities begin on September 15. Park in our Hermansau Street parking lot and enter at the Church Office doors before heading downstairs to our Lower Level.
Both groups are open to all mothers, you do not need to be a member of Bethlehem to attend. So invite a friend! Dinner is provided for moms. Childcare is available for children during meetings (RSVP required -email firstname.lastname@example.org). Meetings include a speaker, creative activity, or MOPS International curriculum, and lots of "discussion time"! Bethlehem MOPS/MOMSnext members also get together socially for special events outside of our meetings.
