Isn’t it great to be a part of a not-so-average church!!! I pray we go beyond ourselves with God’s guidance in the days to come. You are a family that blesses the socks off of my life. Thanks for providing an atmosphere where all our kids and students feel welcome and loved.
Help us get the word out!! Pass along this information to any students or family members in your life! Encourage co-workers, friends, or neighbors who might benefit from having their kids or students participate this fall!!!
Here are a few EXCITING things happening this fall in Next Generation (0-18years)!!
As our preschool class (3-5 years) continues to grow (nearly 50 kids every Sunday!) Jason and Kelli Medders have agreed to be our new Preschool Directors!! They have three kids that participate in Kidventure each week. In November we will split the class into two classes. Jason and Kelli will be leading the charge! We want to continue to provide a fun, safe environment for our preschoolers. Parents, Jason and Kelli will be hosting a parent day in preschool on Sunday October 23rd during both services. Parents will join their preschool child for the opening of the class to get a glimpse into the fun, exciting experience your kids have EVERY Sunday!
1st-5th Grade Basketball Camp
Higher Hoops is a non-competitive basketball camp for kids 1st through 5th grade specifically designed to address the emotional, physical, and social needs of kids. They will learn fundamental basketball skills in a fun environment with half of the morning being a scrimmage! Higher Hoops will be every Saturday from Oct 22 to Nov 19. Sign up your 1st through 5th grade child today!!! Check out more information here.
Pre-K through 5th Grade Special Needs Respite Night

6th-12th Grade Oxygen
EVERY Wednesday at 7:00pm we are packing out the Ministry Center with Middle and High School students!! We believe God wants us to impact the lives of at least 200 students a week. We are diving deeper into the message from Sunday in our small groups, hanging out with friends, and playing games. Click here to go to the Oxygen page or click here to find a calendar of events.
It takes the efforts of many to provide world-class children’s ministry. Thanks to all who volunteer within Next Generation! You are truly the BEST volunteers in the world!! If you would like to get involved in any part of Next Generation just fill out this form and we’ll be in touch.
Josh Ridder began this past July on our Next Generation staff full-time. God has blessed him with a gift for working with students, accomplishing details, and a heart to see young people connecting with Christ!!! Josh is currently responsible for our Middle and High School Oxygen students on Wednesday nights and the details of Early Childhood (0-5years) Kidventure classes on Sunday mornings. Josh and his wife Ann just finished celebrating their first year of marriage in August. They enjoy walking their new puppy, Rosie, hiking, camping, and riding bikes! We are so excited God has brought this young couple to help Prairie Heights continue to reach the next generations in our community!!
