About FBC Youth

FBC Youth exists to lead a growing number of grades 7 – 12 students into a vital relationship with Jesus Christ, by creating a community where friendships are made, faith is discovered, and relationships with Jesus are developed.

We start with a youth service that includes music, sharing, media, and prayer. Students spend the rest of the evening in age specific small groups. FBC Youth small groups give students an opportunity to connect on a deeper level with their peers and consistent small group leaders, while discovering more about Jesus and being mentored in their faith journey. 

Jr. High (Grades 7-9) students meet on Sundays from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Sr. High (Grades 10-12) students meet on Wednesdays from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Please check out the FBC Calendar for upcoming dates!

FBC YOUTH values:

  • Reaching out to others through loving relationships
  • Telling the world about Jesus Christ
  • Worshiping God with our entire lives
  • Growing in faith, knowledge, love, and grace
  • Serving and loving God and people

Modified youth worship nights

FBC is modifying Jr. High Youth and Sr. High Youth nights! We’ve had a lot of questions as we have tried to figure out how to hold youth group while cooperating with all the regulations around meeting, and so we are guessing you have some questions too! We’re hoping the following gives you the information you need.

What does ‘modified’ mean?

You can still expect games, music, a message and small groups but our actions in and around the church will be much more directed than we are used to. For starters, we will have limitations on how many people can be in the building at the same time. To avoid having to turn anyone away at the door, we will be doing online registration for youth nights. You or your youth will be able to sign up weekly.

We will be arranging our spaces and directing movement within the building to ensure that social distancing of six feet between household groups is observed at all times helping to prevent the spread of infection. This will take some time, so make sure you come a few minutes early for your service.

When you arrive at the church, everyone will enter through the main entrance at the south side of the building. Again, please remember to leave six feet between each other while waiting to enter. After entering the building our leaders will direct you to your seat. Following the worship portion of the evening, sections will be dismissed one at a time out of designated doors towards their small group rooms.

Register

Every person is required to register each week prior to attending youth nights. To register follow the links below.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are masks and hand sanitizer available at the church?

We will have hand sanitizer and masks available upon your entrance. If you have your own mask, please bring it. If not, we will have medical grade masks available free of charge. The wearing of masks is encouraged at all times but is mandatory if you plan on participating in the singing.

When is youth group?

We will launch our modified Youth Worship Service on November 15th for Jr. High Youth and November 18th for Sr. High Youth. This will give us a chance to test out our plans to ensure that we are creating a space that is safe and comfortable for all. Keep up to date on dates and time for future services by checking in regularly with our calendar.

Will there be large events and church wide games? 

There will be no retreats or large group events or games during COVID restrictions. We will play COVID friendly games as a group within our designated seats during the Youth Worship Service.

Will there be supper?

As much as this was a favourite time to fellowship together before the Youth Worship Service, unfortunately, we are not able to provide this service during COVID safely.

How do I sign up to attend a service?

Youth Worship Service registration will be available Tuesday of each week. On FBC Youth webpage, Facebook and Instagram. If we have reached our capacity before you register, you will be able to register for a wait list and we will notify you if space opens for you to attend.

If you aren’t comfortable using the online registration form, just contact the office during regular office hours for information about service times and to register.

Can anyone attend the services?

We are excited to see both well-known and new faces when our doors open! Each individual will be responsible to do a self-assessment to ensure that it is safe for them to attend.

Please click here to do a self-assessment for any COVID symptoms. Anyone with any of these symptoms should stay home.
