MomsNation

MomsNation is all about moms! Over 300 moms strong, we have 8 different groups (and 2 new groups launching this fall!) designed to meet the diverse needs of moms in our communities. Pick the group that best suits your needs based on your children's ages, schedule and interest. Watch the MOMS NATION VIDEO for a glimpse of what you can experience through one of these groups.

WHICH MOMSNATION GROUP IS RIGHT FOR ME?

 

   JPEG MOPS Mothers of Preschoolers

    (for moms with infants through kindergarteners)
 

MOPS is a community for moms with preschool-aged children.  Carve out two hours of 'me' time twice a month to experience friendship, food and food-for-thought while your child(ren) are cared for in a safe, engaging environment by our loving and nurturing MOPPETS staff.

   MomsInTheMiddleLogo Moms in the Middle

    (for moms with school-aged children)
 

Moms in the Middle is a community for moms with school-aged children. These complex, go-between years often land moms right in the middle of a territory she's not yet charted. Twice monthly, MITM gifts you a coveted escape - two hours to catch your breath, converse and connect with moms who are living parallel lives. Childcare for younger children available.

   MomsOfEmptyNests Moms of Empty Nests

     (for moms with college-aged or adult children)
 

Moms of Empty Nests is a community for moms in (or soon to be in) the empty nest season of life.  Enjoy speakers on relevant topics, support and encouragement through meaningful group discussion, and friendship with others navigating similar mothering joys and challenges.
