What to expect
Safety & Security
Your family's safety and security is of critical importance at Sugar Grove. We do everything in our power to create an environment that is physically, emotionally and spiritually safe. That's why we background check and train every volunteer that works on our NextGen Team. You'll see us wearing lanyards that designate NextGen volunteers and leaders.
To ensure that every child goes home safely, we employ a check-in/check-out procedure through fifth grade. You may check in your child at any available station where you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. At the conclusion of service or event, present your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to learn more about Sugar Grove NextGen Ministry. I'm Dana Williams, NextGen Minister at Sugar Grove Church of Christ.
I'm also a mom to a tween and a teen, so I know what it's like to look into your child's face and have that feeling that your heart could burst with love and melt with fear simultaneously. You never knew you could love anyone so much, yet you feel overwhelmed by the task of parenting because it's not easy to raise kids in this world. Unfortunately, no one hands you a manual on how to raise great adults when they hand you your baby. If you're like me, on any given day you go between feeling like super hero status and wondering if you're bombing this parenting gig. You want to be a better parent and to lead your kids well. I get it! I do, too!
Sugar Grove NextGen Ministries knows those hopes and fears are answered when a life is focused on the gospel - the good news about Jesus. He is God's great rescue plan for our failures and those of our kids. Our mission is to lead kids and students to a transformed life that is For God and For Neighbor because of the gospel. We do that by partnering family and church to create opportunities for the next generation to grow as followers of Jesus. Your kids will love our preschool, elementary and youth programs.
