At Saxe Gotha, it is our greatest desire to nurture a life of discipleship in everyone, especially in the next generation. We encourage our youngest members through worship, growing relationships within our community, studying God’s Word, serving others, and through a variety of fun activities.

We also seek to walk alongside parents & guardians to offer encouragement and to provide tools to equip them in the blessing of discipling their children.

In Scripture, our ancestors in the faith were given this instruction, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” - Deuteronomy 6:5-7

We strive to offer programming that helps to prepare families for all the stages of life with Sunday morning Bible Study in Sunday School and Sunday and Wednesday night programming which includes music, scripture memory, games, art, crafts, snacks, service and fellowship. We offer a graded choir program on Sunday night that gives our students various opportunities to lead in worship through song and our year culminates with a full-scale musical.

We believe God’s Word promises parents that they will have more significant influence over their children because that’s how God’s designed the family. The Next Generation Ministry exists to equip parents and guardians to spiritually lead, develop and exemplify faith at home. At Saxe Gotha, #thisishowwedofamily.
