This year we are switching everything up regarding our youth program!
We will now be meeting on a different night of the week, for a longer duration, and in a new location!
This year we will be meeting in the portable located on the north side of the church property. We welcome any high-school aged youth to come out and join us for fun filled evenings of games, lessons and snacks.
Once a month we plan to partner with the YFC Upper Deck for their drop-in night (week to be determined).
For students in Grade 7-8
6:15pm to 7:30pm
JAM will be held at our church building in the old youth room upstairs. We welcome anyone
in grades 7 and 8 to come out and enjoy some fellowship while learning about how Jesus influences their everyday life.
For Students in JK to Grade 6
6:15pm to 7:30pm
The purpose of TREK is to reach all the kids in our community with the amazing Gospel news. Through crazy-fun games, amazing crafts, delicious snacks, and fun interactive Bible lessons our kids are engaged and taught about who Jesus is and why He is important to our lives. If your kids loved VBC, they will also love our weekly Wednesday night TREK programs
Each Sunday our children worship with the entire congregation with singing and then they head off for their very own Junior Church time.
You may be wondering what happens once they excitedly rush off. Together, we head up to the children’s church rooms, where the kids are taught a bible lesson with the help of an object or sometimes a video. We then talk about the lesson – how it applies to their everyday lives, and how God wants to have a personal relationship with them. This is followed by an activity, like colouring (which the littlest ones love most) or word searches and crossword puzzles (a favourite among the older kids). We usually wrap things up by playing a game or just enjoying the toys.
We strive to make the atmosphere fun, friendly and inviting for all the children. As leaders, we love to hear about what is happening in the kids’ lives … and they love telling us!
The purpose of the nursery is to be a place where our children and infants have fun and feel safe, while allowing parents to feel comfortable leaving their child(ren) and attending the Sunday Service. The nursery caters to children ages 36 months and under. There are lots of toys and books and friendly volunteers who love to spend time with our little ones, showing them the love of Jesus!
Mom's Group is a time to get together for moms with young children. Our kids can play together while us moms can get to know each other better. We meet at the church every Thursday morning
Also, on nice days we sometimes head out and spend some time at the park. Our group is pretty low key; while our kids play, we moms talk about life, parenting, the joys and challenges of being moms, and occasionally share prayer requests.
Please talk to Steph van den Bogerd or Annie Juhlke if you would like more details (or contact the church office).
