FV Youth meet weekly on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm. You can read more about what we do on Wednesday nights below. Students in grades 6, 7, & 8 also meet on Sunday mornings during the 9am & 11am worship gatherings.
All FV Students are part of a small group. Small groups are a place where students wrestle through the topics we talk about at youth group. Students meet regularly in their small groups to hangout, engage in each other’s lives, and grow together.
We believe serving is a necessary part of growing as Christ followers. Students at FV Youth serve in our Zapped Camp summer program, our KidsView Sunday school program, and organizations like Reach Forth. FV Students also host a monthly toonie breakfast at Next Door Space in Burlington.

What’s Happening on Wednesday Nights?
FV Youth is all about connecting with God, and connecting with each other. Students at ForestView in grades 6-12 meet at our building every Wednesday night from 7 – 9pm for community, worship, and relationship. FV Youth emphasizes three key values that shape the structure of our night.
Biblical teaching and worship is a significant component of FV Youth. Each week we discuss important issues when it comes to living a vibrant faith in today’s culture. How do we become powerfully shaped by a relationship with Jesus? How do we live out a faith that is crowned with love? These are the sorts of questions we wrestle with at FV Youth.
Often times we do teaching separately between grade 6, 7, & 8 students and high school students. Other times we’ll all come together for a message to the whole youth ministry.
Every student who comes to FV Youth has a small group. Whether it’s their first time or their hundredth time, students are welcomed into a small group based off of their age and gender. Small group time is a key component of every Wednesday night, and it’s designed for students to connect with their peers and leaders about their lives. Students catch up, chit chat, but also discuss matters of life and faith.
Occasionally we also have Small Group Nights where small groups spend the entire evening together. Different Small Groups have done video game nights at the church, Areosports, Go-Karting, and dodge-ball tournaments. Small Group Nights are a key component to our students building community and relationships with their peers.
We’ve always got room for having fun! Whether it’s the 15 minutes at the beginning of the night where students are hanging out, the active games we play throughout there building, or all of the silly interactions in-between, we’re big believers in enjoying yourself. Our Wednesday program has different games and activities where students grow in relationship with each other, and get to be crazy with their peers.
