Welcome to Summer Jam (at Home)!

Welcome to Summer Jam (at Home)!

We're so glad you're here! As a family, you will use the materials provided by New City NextGen and the daily digital resources below to help your preschool and elementary kids dive deeper into their faith by putting the FOCUS on God and His amazing plan for them!

If you are joining us a little later, we are thrilled that you are here! We have included links to all the game, craft and activity pages that were in the supply pack, so you can fully participate. This is the consolidated supply list, so you can shop once for the week.  Your family will have a blast as they discover how to trust in what they CAN'T see, because of what they CAN see.  

Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started this journey of faith. And he is the one who completes the journey of faith. He paid no attention to the shame of the cross. He suffered there because of the joy he was looking forward to. Then he sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 
-Hebrews 12:2 (NIrV)
