Generation NOW! is a fun and exciting place to be for kids on a Sunday, with games, friends, fun and all while learning more about God.
Generation NOW! is broken into the following:
Sonbeams: 3 – 5 year olds
LIberty Kids: 6 yr old – Yr 6
Next Level: Yr 7 – Yr 9
The Generation NOW! team are dedicated not only to the children who come on Sunday’s but to their families also. Generation NOW’s vision is:
“To lead children and their families to being
active disciples of Jesus Christ.”
Each Sunday there is a bus that travels around Awatapu area and will pick up and drop off children & families who would like to come to Generation NOW!. This is an amazing ministry and is bringing many in each week to learn about God. Click here to see the Bus Route.
There are also cell groups during the week for the older children to be part of, talent nights for the families to see their kids perform and kids camps to look forward to during the year.
