FEED THE NEED Putting our faith into motion by feeding the body, mind and soul

Future Gen

 Future Gen: Where faith and fun collide!
Future Gen learning communities are offered during the 10am service each Sunday. The first Sunday of the month we have the pre-k to 2nd grade students attend class and those in third and above have family worship time. Youth begin their morning in the family worship at 10:00am. After our children's message children and youth are invited to go participate in our Future Gen groups to learn about discipleship through a variety of engaging activities.
Grades Pre-K to 5th grade
Children in pre-k to 5th grade will learn about discipleship and one bible story or theme each month through a variety of engaging activities and methods. Activities such as storytelling, arts & crafts, games, cooking, drama, song, and community service will support them to learn about God's word in different ways personally meaningful to them.
Grades 6-12
Older youth enjoy time with each other as they relate God's word with today's culture. A variety of activities occur throughout the year including movie discussions and financial literacy to prepare them for life's future responsibilities.




We will begin Future Gen programming during the 9:30AM service starting September 12th.


Our PreK-6 group will be led by Kaitlin Ciccarello, Michelle Pyrich, and

Tammy Roberge. The 7-12 group will be led by Donna Downes, Kris-
ten Sturtevant, and John Wilderman. Dan Saucier will join them later in

the fall.
FutureGen will take place every Sunday except Communion Sundays

(the first Sunday of the month). On these Sundays, we invite the chil-
dren to join the rest of the congregation for worship. We hope you can

join us for the return of FutureGen!

In everything do to others as you would have them do to you.

Matthew 7:12

The elementary class will begin the year with a unit about Respect.
Jesus taught us that the most important thing we can do is to love God
and each other (Matthew 22:34-40). One way we can do this is through

respect. The children will learn about why loving God and others mat-
ters while exploring different ways they might show and share God’s

love through respect. They will have opportunities to discover how re-
spect is shown throughout the Bible and discuss how those examples

apply today.
