Families

We desire to inspire the Next Generation to become fully alive in God by inviting and encouraging them to know, love and follow Jesus, by helping them build relationships in our faith community, and by giving them opportunities to live for the sake of others. It is also our desire to come alongside, support and encourage parents in their role as the primary spiritual nurturers of their child’s or student’s faith. We call this area Next Generation.

Welcome Next Kids and Next Youth!
