What is NEXT?
NEXT is a program that offers life and spiritual enrichment courses, seminars, support groups, workshops, and bible studies. Think of it like a place where you can go to learn about the things you find interesting or helpful in a setting that is friendly and welcoming.
NEXT in three flavours
NEXT offers 3 areas of study that can help you find and follow God’s next step in your life. Areas of study include Biblical studies, life enrichment, and leadership development. These three flavours utilize proven course material and are facilitated by qualified instructors. All of these courses are taught at the SouthRidge building in Murrayville providing the Langley area and surrounding community access to classes on topics like Bible classes, parenting courses, internet safety seminars, and leadership development classes.
When are NEXT seminars and programs offered?
Courses and workshops will be available during fall (Oct – Nov), winter (Jan – Feb) and spring (Apr – May).
Come as you are!
There is no need to be an expert in any of the areas of study. In fact, NEXT is designed to take anyone at any skill level and provide something of interest to all wide ranging audience.
