A typical year will kick off the year with the Re:Activate convention in September just as school begins, includes a spring weekend retreat and ends with a wrap-up party in June, Highlights throughout the year include our Christmas Banquet, SERVE trip, and various outings such as going to skating, bowling, laser tag, rock climbing and more. We also give back to our church and local community through service projects.
We try to make events accessible to all youth and most outings and events are completely free of charge. To help offset the cost of larger youth trips, such as our SERVE trip and Youth Retreat, we will occasionally hold fundraisers.
The first Tuesday of every month is Drop-In from 3:00 - 7:00 pm. This is a casual time where youth can hang out with each other, play games, eat snacks or work on homework. Dinner will also be served! Feel free to drop-in at any time!
Just like our church, our youth ministry seeks to be a place where teens can reach IN, reach UP, and reach OUT. Our youth are encouraged and equipped to be involved in the church as leaders in our kids programs, musicians, and A/V technicians.
For more information about Fleetwood’s Youth Ministry, please contact our Youth Pastor, Natasha Vedder or call the church office at 604-584-6244 to speak with her. 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, or meet a bit earlier. We look forward to meeting you!
We invite you to follow @fleetwoodcrcyouth on Instagram for glimpses of our youth ministry.
SERVE Team - each year we participate in Serve Mission Trips. Serve trips offer faith-forming experiences for youth.
As 18-30 year olds at Fleetwood, we enjoy gathering together for occasional games night, events with other churches, and a small group Bible Study. Fall 2023 our Bible study will be held on Wednesday nights at 7pm, every other week beginning Sept 20. We meet upstairs at church. Our fall Bible study will be explore the question "What is salvation for?" All are welcome!
We offer internships for young adults interested in being more involved in our church. We deeply desire for our church to be a place where young people are actively involved in leadership, and this is one way we attempt to cultivate that. We are currently offering a Summer Reaching Out internship (14 weeks). Stay tuned for details about summer 2024.
Please contact our Youth Pastor, Natasha Vedder at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 604-584-6244 for updates, current events, and with any questions you may have.
