NEXT Ministries is FAPC's group of 20- and 30-somethings who put Jesus at the center of their lives as young New Yorkers. Whenever we gather, we aim to support one other on that journey, whether it's through prayer, canoeing on the lake, or fellowship over happy hour.
Through our discussions after worship on Sundays—aka Focus of NEXT—we acknowledge that even though our jobs, hometowns and ethnicities are very different, we share a strong desire to live our daily lives in Christian faith. This fall we'll zero in on how God wants us to behave in the main worlds we inhabit as young adults: work, dating and relationships, even church (because, ironically enough, that last one is sometimes the trickiest). We'll also dig into why we pray and read Scripture, and possibly form a one-Sunday-only, impromptu band to remind ourselves how music fits into the Christian tradition.
Focus of NEXT meets every Sunday, from September through May, after the 11 am worship service. To receive our weekly e-newsletter, with information on upcoming programs and events, email email@example.com. And join our Facebook group here!
If you are a young New Yorker looking for community, friendship and a spiritual home, we invite you to Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. From there, we'll show you what comes NEXT.
