All middle and high school students (grades 7-12) are welcome to come out for NextGen! We usually meet on Sunday mornings for "Conversations, Confections, and Christ" (9:00-9:45 AM) and Sunday nights for NextGen@Night (6:00-7:30 PM). Most meetings are at the church building, but social gatherings are often elsewhere.
Our leadership team is: Pastor Mike Quillen, Julia Quillen, Scott Moore, Boris Bla, Bob Styer, and Peggy Styer
To help youth in 7th-12th grade build deeper relationships with God and each other so that they shine the light of Jesus Christ now and in the future.
This year, we are doing two different main gatherings. One in the morning and one in the evening. We will also have service opportunities, social gatherings, and other fun.
Conversations, Confections, and Christ takes place on Sunday mornings from 9:00 - 9:45 AM. We will take 3 to 4 weeks to talk about a relevant topic and how it relates to following Jesus. We’ll cover some BIG things, like our purpose in life and our identity. We’ll dialogue about some PRACTICAL stuff, like emotions and money. We’ll also hit some FUN topics, like music and video games.
And, of course we’ll have some donuts!
NextGen@Night takes place on Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30 pm. We have fun, connect with each other, and build our connection to Jesus Christ. This year, our lesson times will take us on a tour through the whole Bible. We’ll use some great illustrated videos to learn some surprising things. We’ll talk about the Bible’s overall story, how to read the Bible most effectively, and what every book of the Bible is about!
During this year, we’ll also participate in some service projects (like helping with Kids Fair in October) and regular social gatherings (like a Christmas party in December).
Each lesson is self-contained, so every week is a good week to join us for the first time!
