BELONG without restriction, BELIEVE without reservation, BECOME without regret.”

Every Tuesday the lobby is transformed into a games and lounge area and is open for students to hang out until the start of youth at 7 pm.

Sundays, September to June at 9 & 10:45 AM in Room 118 Starts Sun Sep 8, 2019. Join up with other grade 7 & 8 students for an interactive time with some of our awesome Jr. Youth leaders. They know how to make things exciting and it’s not just because of Chocolate Bar Sunday….seriously. It’s a chance to understand God’s grace and truth, and how teens, we can live a life of purpose in God’s power.  


Every Friday, all year, 7-10 PM (excluding holiday weekends) Starts Fri Sep 6, 6:15 pm with The Landing Launch & BBQ. The Landing is a confidential support and recovery program specifically for students in grades 7-12 who just need a bit of extra support through some of life’s toughest struggles. It is a place where students can be themselves, accepted as they are, and learn to find freedom and victory over their hurts, habits and hang-ups.
