Upcoming Youth Events

June 22nd - 28th 2024: Alaska Mission Trip

Youth Adventures

As part of the anxiety series, focused on Philippians 4:4-9, the night picture below was focused on meditating on good things. The students put the Word into practice through the art of a prayer labyrinth.

On Thursday May 2, the youth group provided a meal for the Welcome Table. A little over 100 meals were served.

On May 11, the youth group had their final meeting for the 2023-2024 school year. It was filled with pizza, movies, and a range of emotions as we celebrated our two graduating seniors.

Looking Ahead:
The summer schedule has rolled out! Check out the bulletin board outside of the youth room for the summer activities.
Consider volunteering for Vacation Bible School, July 14-18. Sign up online or email me.
Please keep the 12 mission trip attendees in your prayers. We travel June 22-29.

Thank you all for your light and love for the youth.

2024 Mission Trip to Alaska

Once a gold rush boomtown, Fairbanks is now considered the “Golden Heart of Alaska”; the last true frontier. Here, your youth will work to combat homelessness and be a part of spiritual healing to the community through construction and social initiatives.
WORSHIP
We’ve been told our worship experience is where summer camp meets mission trip. At Next Step, your youth will create unforgettable memories and friendships while worshipping and growing together in their understanding of who Jesus is. Each evening will include great bands, challenging speakers and a powerful video series created and filmed exclusively for your mission trip.
CONSTRUCTION
Have you ever gone on a mission trip and been disappointed by the work projects? You’re left wondering— isn’t there something more we could have done? At Next Step, we have partnered with local community leaders to ensure that the projects are meaningful and alleviate vital building needs. Your youth will work on projects such as full home builds, home additions, drywall, siding, flooring, wheelchair ramps, and more.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
Do you ever wonder if your short-term mission trip really made a difference? At Next Step, youth serve alongside local community members, churches and nonprofits, as we meet the needs of the community together. With our full-time staff living in the communities we partner with, and projects being selected by the community, you will be part of a movement in responsible short-term missions.
