Next Step is a ministry for 5th and 6th graders.  Monte Sano UMC recognizes that our 5th and 6th graders are at a unique stage of development.  They are too old for Children’s Ministry, but not quite ready for Youth Ministry.  That is where Next Step fits in!

We offer programs on Wednesday and Sunday evenings uniquely tailored to this age group.  Programs include discussion about scripture, games, mission projects, and creative expressions of faith.  All 5th and 6th Graders are welcome!

Next Step

Sunday Nights

Next Step meets on Sunday Nights from 5:30 until 7:30pm.  We begin with the church’s Youth Group (grades 7-12) for a meal and some games.  Then we separate for our age appropriate lesson time, before coming back for closing worship.

Special Events

Next Steps meets for special events throughout the year.  Watch the bulletin and newsletter to catch these events!

Next Step follows our Safe Sanctuaries Child Protection Policy.
