Newberg MOPS

Welcome to Newberg MOPS!

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why MOPS connects moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who 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 our identity by journeying alongside one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

Meet Your Steering Team - Angela Kantz

Name- Angela Kantz

Kids/Family- My husband Ben and I have been married for 9 years and we have two sweet littles, Noah will be 4 in September, and Selah is 7 months.

Where did you grow up - I pretty much grew up in Newberg.  I've lived here since I was 10.

What did you do before kids- before kids I worked full time, I read more, sewed, and got more sleep.

Hobbies - I enjoy reading, quilting, playing games, and being with friends.

Favorite mops memory - Hmmm one specific memory doesn't come to mind.
Probably what I like best is laughing with my table group and the friendships that come from that time.

Why did you join steering- I joined steering to get more involved. I like planning things and being apart of a team.  This is my 3rd year on steering and I really enjoy it!

What are you most looking forward to for this year of MOPS- I am really excited about the theme of mops, and the challenge to really live into 'being myself bravely'.  I'm hoping to work on accepting myself AS I AM, instead of trying to fit into something that I am not, and not doing that in secret but with other moms all around me.
