MOMSnext is currently not meeting this fall in Erie. If you’d like to lead this ministry, please email

MOMSnext is a community of moms with kids past the preschool years. It is a division of MOPS International but is meant to meet the needs of moms of school-aged children from early elementary school through high school.

Unlike MOPS groups where moms are newly in the throes of motherhood, MOMSnext moms are in the rhythm of parenting. However as their children grow, they are encountering new and specific parenting challenges. They also have a new ability to lift their heads and see the broader world around them. They are in a phase of personal growth where they may have more freedom to pursue professional or personal interests now that their kids are older.

MOMSnext meetings are a place where conversations bring forth relationships – friendships centered on shared parenting, marriage and work-life balance questions. From there, moms can safely dig into their God-breathed purpose and deeper questions about letting kids grow, then eventually go. We will be talking about various topics possibly including school, bullying, internet use, balancing our time, and sibling relationships plus playing games, laughing, and having fun together as women and not just moms.
