FV Youth is committed to exposing youth to Jesus Christ and to helping them find their place within the Kingdom of God. The purpose of FV Youth is for students to become shaped by the Narrative of God’s Kingdom and become active participants in it. As the youth ministry of ForestView: Church Without Walls, we offer programming for youth from grade 6-12.
The Youth Ministry meets on Wednesday nights in the Youth Room (through the front door, down the hallway, to the right). Youth can show up anywhere between 6:30-7pm, check out the tuck shop, play a round of Ed’s Alley, or just hangout. We usually begin around 7:15, where we’ll play an activity or active game. Usually we have two games running at the same time, one more high-energy and one more relaxed, so youth can choose which one to go to.
Once we’ve finished the games, we’ll move into a time of discussion and teaching back in the Youth Room. We discuss all sorts of matters of faith and life. We whole-heartedly believe that Jesus transforms lives, and by engaging His story we’re drawn into it. Discussions are engaging, and youth are encouraged to discuss and respond as they feel comfortable to do so.
Afterwards, we transition into the Small Groups portion of the nights. Youth are broken up into groups where they can discuss the message, catch up on what’s going on in each other’s lives, play some games, or pretty much anything else. We allow each of our small groups to lead themselves in how they meet and discuss.
We also have several events throughout the year, usually on the weekend, where we usually go do something. Usually these sorts of events are for either just high school students or just junior high school students. You can find the Calendar for the 2017/2018 school year below. The calendar will outline all Wednesday evenings from September until June, as well as any weekend where youth are meeting.
To get more details about anything youth-related, please don’t hesitate to contact our Youth Director by email (email@example.com) or phone (905-825-2992).
In keeping with our protection policy, we have a general youth registration form that we ask all parents to fill out for their youth who attend Wednesday night Youth Group. You can find that form below. We also have forms on-hand on Wednesday nights.
