Do you want to experience a night filled with fun, connection with God and other students? Join our Next Generation services Sunday nights from 6-7:30pm!

Our mission is:

To lead students into a healthy relationship with Christ by providing an opportunity to connect to God and other students through a live worship experience and a dynamic message.

New Hope Kids

New Hope Kids (NHK) is the place to be if you are in Elementary School. With a secure place to leave your little one, you can be confident that they will experience an incredible, passionate children’s service. Aside from worship, crafts, and games, NHK will challenge your child to learn more about God and grow to love Him more!

 

Crossover Youth

Crossover Youth is available for our Junior and High School students. This youth group focuses on integrating the Word of God with an environment that allows for a dynamic experience with other students.

What Makes Crossover a Great Youth Group?

There are various aspects that youth groups focus on and these will be the areas of primary focus. In order for this to happen, it is going to take a complete team effort. The name on the front of the jersey is more important that the name on the back. We all passionately participate and achieve small wins together.

LEAD NOW Students

These are student leaders in the youth group but you should be just as passionate to make this happen on a Sunday morning because that is the biggest event that takes place at this church – it’s bigger than youth night. LEAD NOW students who are a junior or senior in high school will also participate in the annual Mardi Gras Outreach with New Hope’s SUM students.
