Welcome to Dexter United Methodist Church!

Next Step Rec

Our Mission

Next Step Rec is a relational outreach into our surrounding communities.  We offer both traditional and non traditional sports, recreation, and fitness for all ages, with healthy competition in a safe environment.  Next Step Rec creates an opportunity to invite our neighbors, build relationships and fight isolation in our community. We pray that our new space and this ministry will be one of our best tools for inviting and showing the love of God to those around us.

Newkirk Commons is Now Open!

Bring your friends and family in from the cold to move, play and have some fun. There are scheduled times for walking, pickleball, basketball and yoga. New events will be added and expanded as the program continues grow.Unless a class or group has it reserved, Newkirk Commons is open; but remember that younger kids need to be supervised by an adult when there’s not a ministry leader. If you’re in the Atrium drinking coffee and checking in on the kids, we’d love to see you here.

Guidelines for Use

  • Equipment is only available during regularly scheduled Next Step Rec events.
  • We ask that you clean up after yourself when you leave for the day.
