What’s Youth Group for? We decided it was for stuff that matters to us. Choices. Multicultural lives. Poverty awareness. Earth. Friendships. Inclusive to all. LGBTQ-friendly. Faith. Self. We don’t have all the answers, but we’re finding our way forward in a safe place.


Thursdays (7-9 pm; grade 7 and up) a mix of fun/hanging out, with substance. What matters to you? We take a theme and work it out, we talk, play ping pong, eat, watch stuff, listen to Music that matters. We challenge each other. There is room for all – we’re differently-abled, diverse backgrounds, athletic or artistic – but we all come open to one another.

Sundays (10:45-11:30 am; ages 10+) Seeking meaning? Checking out church? Start in Worship at 10:30 all together, then youth 10+ drop downstairs part way through. A chance to mix life & faith together, exploring how it looks for us. Look at what God is doing in our world & in us. Welcome, wondering, and open to your ideas.

Youth Group has been meeting digitally for the past year as we do everything we can to remain connected within the community.

Alternative Events Overnight retreats, field trips, Skyzone, laser tag, outings, mission opportunities, Confirmation, camping – as planned. Our GO Project missions and leadership opportunities are supported by the congregation.

Network Matters Teens have awesome capacity & we strengthen that with a wider network. We’re supported by a mix of adults & parents who care, drive, cook, listen, and respond. Parents: Let Ian know if there is a theme, idea, concern or solution we can explore.
