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 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 sound & projection technicians. We kick off the year with a convention in September just as school begins, and end with a party in June. In 2019, we will also end with a weekend retreat. Highlights throughout the year include our Christmas Banquet, Young Women's Retreat, and various outings to bowling alleys, movie theatres, and laser tag.
Youth Group meets Tuesday nights from 6:45pm-8:30pm during the school year. A typical youth night consists of social & snack time, worship, and teaching & discussion (by our Youth Pastor, youth leader, or a guest speaker). We are currently working through the material provided by Fuller Youth Institute called Can I Ask That? dealing with hard questions about God and Faith. Some weeks we have fun outings, or service projects such as delivering flowers to local home-bound seniors. Twice per month, we meet at the same times as our Children 4 Christ group, grade 4-7. We join them for a game and time of worship, and then we spend time hanging out together in the youth room.
We invite you to check out our Facebook page to see more of what we’re all about or follow @fleetwoodcrcyouth on Instagram. For more information about Fleetwood’s Youth Ministry, please contact our Youth Pastor, Natasha Vedder at firstname.lastname@example.org 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. We look forward to meeting you! Click here to see past Connection Newsletters.
SERVE Team - each year we participate in Serve Mission Trips. Serve trips offer faith-forming experiences for youth. In July 2019 we will be serving in Victoria, BC!
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 occasional games night, an annual winter retreat, and a small group Bible Study. For July and August we will be meeting on Tuesday nights at 7:30. Please contact Natasha for location details.
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 offer a Winter/Spring Reaching Up internship (17 weeks), a Summer Reaching Out internship (14 weeks), and a Fall Reaching Up internship (17 weeks), all of which are paid internships with a learning and doing component and mentoring provided.
