NEXT Curriculum


This six- week study can be used individually, but, we highly recommend you share this journey in a small group setting. The NEXT study intertwines our theme of DREAM…GO…DO and focuses on sustainability of the Church, self, and creation care.

The first three weeks, you will research issues, dig deep into your own story, and creatively experience God. The final three weeks of the study, you will reflect and respond to God’s call individually and collectively as a community. Remember to tag us via social media, and share your journey with the NEXT community. #NEXTUMC
