NEXT is the middle and high school ministry at Forest Park. We exist because we believe in the next generation and believe there has never been a better time to be a part of what God is doing in this age group. We love to party! We can’t make students love Jesus, but we can make sure they love church! You can expect energetic and loud music, encouraging messages, and plenty of time to hang with friends. Not only do we have fun, we see Jesus change lives every time we gather. Come party with us!
NEXT GROUPS give students an opportunity to connect with adults who want to partner with you and invest in the life of your student and other students who are around their same age. They can ask questions, grow closer to Jesus, and build better relationships with other students. At Forest Park, we believe life is better together.
