Youth and Young Adults
Teens in grade 8-12 are welcome to be a part of our youth group. Just like our church, our youth ministry seeks to be a place where teens can belong, believe, and become. Our youth have the opportunity to lead worship for our youth nights and also during our Sunday morning services. They are encouraged to be involved in the church as leaders in our kids programs, musicians, and sound & projection technicians. We usually kick off the year with a convention in September just as school begins, and end with a party in June. Highlights throughout the year include our Christmas Banquet, Young Women's Retreat, various outings, and All-Nighter.
Youth Group meets most Tuesday nights from 7-8:30pm. A typical youth night consists of social & snack time, worship, and teaching (by our Youth Pastor, youth leader, or a guest speaker), followed by small group discussions facilitated by leaders. Some weeks we have fun outings, service projects, or games in smaller groups.

If you plan to come visit us for the first time, let us know so we can give you more information about what is happening that night - sometimes we go on an outing and don't meet at church. We look forward to meeting you!
SERVE Team - each year we participate in Serve Mission Trips, either by sending a team or by co-hosting the site in Vancouver. Serve trips offer faith-forming experiences for youth. Call us to find out more!
We serve our neighbours by participating in the Sunday Night Community Dinner at Gracepoint Church in South Surrey. Join us!
As 18-25 year olds at Fleetwood, we enjoy gathering together for a monthly meal and games night, an annual winter retreat, and a small group Bible Study that meets every other Monday night.
