LAUNCH 2022

|

May 22 is Launch at MISSION!

Here’s everything you need to make it easy peasy.

Each year around this time, our Next Generation Ministry launches kids and youth into their next phase based on their age/grade. For some, this means they get to experience an exciting, new environment. For others, there is virtually no change.

During the weekend services of May 8 and 15, kids 4-years-old through 6th grade have the opportunity to preview their new environments/groups. If your kids didn’t check-in during these weekends, don’t worry, we are here to help!

The info below will help you prepare for Launch, Sunday, May 22, 2022. Please select a dropdown box below for more info on each ministry area!
