Below is some common Question and Answers that we often run into. Hopefully they will help inform you of what really happens in the youth ministry. To the right you will find updates, and current information relating to the youth ministry.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any comments or questions.
Is it Christian? What do you teach?
Yes. We are a member of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church of Canada and hold to their statement of faith.
We also understand that there are a lot of different issues that teenagers are wrestling with. We want to create a safe environment where they can ask some tough questions. We do believe that the bible is applicable today and holds truth that will change there lives. Our hope, is that the teens will discover this for themselves.
Throughout a year we will discuss different topics from identity, to fear, to even areas of sexuality, and social justice. We teach these from a biblical perspective, but with an open dialogue context – meaning every teen has the opportunity and right to question. We welcome different worldviews as we engage in discussion together.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
How do I get more information on events?
One of the main reasons why we created this webpage was to provide the resources you need to be informed about whats happening. If you check out our “calendar” section at the top (or click here), you will be able to see whats happening. When you click on event it should have all the information you need from address, time to even permission forms.
What if an event is cancelled?
In the case that an event is cancelled (due to weather or some other unforeseen circumstance) we will communicate with parents as best as we can. The cancellation notice will be posted in the following locations
– The calendar tab – the word Cancelled will now appear on the name of the event
– On this page
– On our Facebook page
– Our Twitter feed
