As we all adjust to a new normal during this season, one thing we can do for you is help you find great resources for teaching your kids about Jesus. We want to partner with you as you raise up the next generation of Christ followers. We'll be in touch regularly in the coming weeks and we'll do our best to pour into your kids' and students' lives. Here are some resources to start with:
Preparing for Easter
This Passion Week, prepare your children's hearts for Easter with our video series of NextGen leaders reading daily excerpts from the Jesus Storybook Bible. We hope this brings some joy and familiar faces into your home!
NextGen Sunday Experience
Even if we can't meet together in person during this time, we want to be sure we're equipping you with the tools you need to give your child a similar experience to a regular Sunday morning NextGen meeting. These simple step-by-step guides feature videos and activities for your child each week.
Celebrate Easter with us in a unique and special way! Easter Jam is a celebration that's BIG enough for the whole family, and for every family. Get ready to JAM with us at 4:00 p.m. on Easter Sunday for a fun, memorable, and family-centered celebration around the Easter story.
The Parent Cue App
This free app gives parents weekly, age-specific, cues for every one of your kids. The app will connect you with Bible stories and verses to talk to your child about, and it will cue you with words to say and things to do connected with the naturally occurring times that already happen every day.
New City NextGen YouTube
Our New City NextGen YouTube channel is the perfect place to explore videos from some of our NextGen Kids and Student leaders, stream worship videos, and more.
RightNow Media is a Netflix-like library of video resources for adults and kids alike. Content for kids includes things like the Mr. Phil Show and the Slugs & Bugs Show, as well as singalong kids shows like Seeds Family Worship and The Rizers.
You should have received an email from us with an invitation link, but if you haven't, contact email@example.com and ask for an invitation.
With so much uncertainty in the world right now, it can be an anxious time for kids. Here are a few Conversation Guides that we’ve found helpful in equipping us with good questions, wise words, and even some insights into how to process our kids' and students' emotions and fears.
Group Video Chat Apps
For our students in this season, one of the best and easiest ways for our youth leaders to keep groups connected and engaged will be by using Google Hangouts and Zoom. We’d encourage your student to get signed up and get familiar with these group chat platforms (if they aren’t already). Both are free.
