Welcome to Dexter United Methodist Church!

Next Step Rec

Sometime in the next month or so we will be closing the Newkirk Commons to reinstall the flooring. The floor is beginning to separate from the concrete and (bless the Lord) is still under warranty. We are at the mercy of the hectic construction schedule and are excited to get this fixed. The gym will be completely closed from the start of construction and up to three weeks after. Due to the mystery of the timeline, we will not be starting any new programs at this time.

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.
