Welcome to Next Gen Ministries at First Christian Church Huntington Beach!
At FCC, we want to encourage all our students, from birth - young adult, to try something new. We provide atmospheres that encourage fun, learning, discussions and application in all areas of our Children's, Junior High, High School, College and Young Adults programs. You can expect an inviting environment and a place where you belong. Every program we offer is designed to give students and young adults an opportunity to grow in their relationship with Jesus, leaders, and each other. We would love to have you join us, so come and try something new!

Special Needs Ministry
WHAT IS "SPECIAL NEEDS" FOR STUDENT LIFE AT FCC?
Special Needs at FCC is defined as: A need any student has that requires some planning in order to ensure that their church experience is safe. Special Needs may include severe allergies, medical issues, or cognitive (such as thinking, reasoning, or remembering) differences.
At FCC we primarily minister through a Buddy System during our Saturday and Sunday morning services. We try to provide one Buddy for each student with special needs. Buddies help the student focus on the lesson, participate as much as possible, or take a break when needed. These students get to participate in all Student Life Ministry activities along with their peers, but they have someone to help them when needed. Parents can feel secure that their student is cared for, AND the teacher is free to focus her or his attention on the entire class.
All Buddies are a member of our congregation. They must also have a love for these students and be comfortable relating to them on the student's level. If they meet those requirements then a background check and training occurs.
