We all bear the responsibility for the generation that comes after us and we must be compelled to ensure kids have a chance to hear the Gospel. Our Next Generation Vision is a blueprint of 4 specific ways that 217church is serving kids and youth both across the street and around the world.
217global will empower vision, plant churches and equip leaders. The church in the Dominican is reaching their communities for Christ. We share the same passion for New Jersey that these pastors have for the Dominican. We each seek God’s direction and vision for His church in our community and expand that reach into new communities. We each believe that global partnerships will help advance the Kingdom. We will pursue God passionately, care for one another deeply, and serve relentlessly through 217global.
Our 217groups follow the 5 practices from Acts 2, which we call our S.L.I.C.E. model.
Serve – Serve together to show God’s love to our community
Learn – Apply Biblical truths to your life
Invite – Invite others to join you in the journey
Care – Care and prayer for one another
Eat – Fellowship together
This is a place where students (grades 6 – 12) can take their faith to the next level.
We believe it is essential to invest in the next generation so they can follow God’s calling on their lives.
We equip students to lean into their faith, lead from their strengths, and provide an example for others by serving in our church and community.
217kids is an environment designed for elementary age children, where they can learn, have fun, and experience first hand God’s love.
Kids are taught through a video based lesson that is fast paced and exciting, as trained leaders walk them through the Bible.
Kids have the opportunity to discuss ideas in smaller groups, Leaders help them understand key points such as the importance of loving others as God loves them.
