Since March of 2020, Next Ministries has been engaged in providing digital ministry due to the Pandemic. As a new church, it was a part of our vision to offer both physical and digital ministry in order to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for people to connect and reconnect with the Christian Faith. While we are still awaiting to learn when we will be allowed back in our space for physical worship, our ministry continues to move forward. 

During the height of the Pandemic we provided PPE, food, and school supplies. We partnered with the  philanthropic arm of Thrivent to provide individuals and families free one-on-one money management and debt coaching through Money Canvas. And we provided opportunities for small groups to meet online to learn and ask questions about faith.  

Currently, we are providing support to children and parents through our local area schools.  We are  offering  online small group courses, Alpha and Rooted, to help people explore and grow in faith. We are planning online and in-person gatherings. And our digital worship services are available weekly beginning every Sunday on our website, Facebook, and YouTube. 

We encourage people to be diligent about their safety and that of family, friends, neighbors, and children, as we see the emergence of variants of COVID-19.  When we are able to gather in-person for worship we will ensure all safety precautions are in place for us to experience being in the presence of God together. Until then, please use primary sources for up-to-date and accurate information concerning the Pandemic.

Live under the protection of God Most High and stay in the shadow of God All-Powerful.  Then you will say to the Lord , “You are my fortress, my place of safety; you are my God, and I trust you.”

Psalms 91:1-2 CEV

I look forward to seeing and connecting with you soon.

Yours in Christ,
