LAUNCH 2021

| | | | | |

May 23 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 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 9 and 16, kids 2 years-old through 6th grade had 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, this Sunday, May 23, 2021. Please select a dropdown box below for more info on each ministry area!
