Jr. High

Our programs are uniquely geared toward the interests and attention spans of our junior high students. Through our ministry, junior highers get to experience and explore God’s love for them in interactive and enjoyable activities. We are committed to making the church experience a good one!

At NXTjhi, our aim is to help students connect with other students, with an adult leader and with God. We’re here to invite you to take steps towards spiritual growth. Wherever you are on your journey of faith, we want to help you know God better.

Check it out! Throughout the year, we have many fun events that are specifically designed for junior highers. NXTjhi meets for Grade Groups on Sunday Mornings at 9 and 11 a.m.  We also meet on Wednesday nights at 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a more traditional youth service.
