GENERATION NEXT

Investing in the next generation of leaders

We love teens! While many today are reluctant to interact with teens, we embrace them! Generation Next exists to help teens in the Cedar Rapids area discover the reality of God’s Word, the greatness of His plans, and the way to make decisions today that will have a positive, lifelong impact for the future. 


Every week, teens come together to worship, to fellowship, and to grow. Through relevant Bible preaching, retreats and summer camps, fun activities, afterglows, basketball and volleyball trips, and many other opportunities, teens never lack an opportunity to connect and grow. 


Our teens meet at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.
