Weekend Retreats – Come away with us for a weekend at a camp or retreat centre for an opportunity to relax in God’s creation, bond with friends and get to know your Creator. We have three retreats per year: 2 for the high schoolers and 1 for the Junior youth (gr 6-8).
Mentoring – Each youth who requests it can get matched up with an adult mentor who will meet regularly one-on-one with them. This individual support can have a huge impact on a teenager’s life.
Leadership Development – There are many opportunities to take leadership in the ministry, including leading small groups. Much support is given by adults to help the youth learn and grow.
Sunday School – The Junior youth (gr 6-8) and Senior youth (gr 9-12+) meet each Sunday at 11:15am in the youth room to learn about how God’s Word, the Bible, instructs us for everyday life.
