Youth

youth_pics_by_Shelly_Lavene_1.jpgThe Youth Group is a place for exploring faith and scripture, asking questions, sharing ideas, and discovering ways to integrate our faith into everyday living at home and at school.

 

The Youth Group meets Sunday mornings during church time, with the Youth joining in the first part of worship before heading to their own worship space.

 

The Youth program is built around the ideas of the youth, creating space for them to explore questions that are important to them, as well as to undertake projects and activities that make a difference in the community and the world. One year our youth went and washed wheelchairs and walkers for senior’s at the Manor and then shared ice cream sundaes with them. The youth have sold coffee and home-made cookies at the Little Britches Parade to raise money toward a project that was important to them.

 

The Youth follow the same pattern of scripture and themes in worship as do the children & adults, but with their own take on it, based on what they are dealing with in their own lives. (See the themes listed under Children’s programming above.)

 

Youth are also welcome to join in any program of our church community. Some of our young people have joined the Calligraphy group or taken some of the Art Classes we host. Some join in helping set up for garage sales or the fall turkey supper. They have helped sort and collect food for the Food Bank. The Youth host one Soup & Bun lunch a year. The youth also join in events which happen in other churches in our community and around the province, including concerts and mission projects.
