NEXT GEN (CHILDREN & YOUTH)
We are passionate about showing Jesus to the next generation. We help children establish and discover their own faith in Jesus as they transition from childhood through the teen years by providing ongoing, age-appropriate learning experiences.
 
Each age group builds on previous foundations and brings exciting new aspects of discovering Jesus and his church.
