Kids Community

The kids out number the adults here at Next, and we offer Sunday morning programming for them all.

We have great (well-trained and pre-screened) volunteers who are eager to cuddle your babies and teach your kids about Jesus in a way that makes sense to them.


We ask parents to accompany your kids to their class rooms, sign them in and meet the volunteers before heading back into the service. We’ll come find you if your child needs you.


Nursery is available for babies and toddlers up to 2-years of age. Our nursery has clean, age-appropriate toys and lots of hands to help.


Ages 2 and 3 are welcome in the pre-school class where they’ll play and sing songs together.


Ages 4 and 5 are welcome in the kindergarten class. In this class kids will play, hear a Bible story, make a craft and pray together.


Elementary kids, grades 1 to 4, have class nearly every Sunday service, though once in a while they’ll stay in the service with the adults. In this class kids will learn about story and talk about what it might mean to them. They might do an activity, play a game and, hopefully, make a new friend.

The Bridge

Older elementary kids, grades 5 to 6, have their own program offered every few weeks during the Sunday service. Through activities and deeper discussions these students learn about what a life of faith looks like and how to model that to those around them.
