Groups & Growth


What does it look like when teens are continually astounded, transformed and motivated by Jesus Christ?


Friday Night Youth

We want to see teens in grades 7–12 connect with Christ in a way that is life-changing—so that’s what Friday Night Youth is all about. If you’re a teen who wants to grow in relationship with Jesus, come hang out with us. We meet on Fridays from 7:00 – 9:30 PM for worship, Bible study and prayer. On most Friday nights we also break into small Life Groups, so you have the opportunity to get to know a youth leader and other teens as you talk about life and faith.

For Parents

We appreciate you for trusting us with your teen. For more information about Friday Night Youth, please contact us.

Learn Some Friday Night Youth Lingo!

FNY: Friday Night Youth

In House: Evening meetings that take place at the church. Students connect and engage through games, bible lessons,
and Life Groups.

Youth Life Groups: Small groups of students who gather during In House evenings to discuss the week’s lesson, share about their lives, and pray together. Students are placed in Life Groups based on grade and gender.

Out House: Youth events that take place away from the church. Whether it be a night out serving others in our city, watching the Blue Jays game, rock climbing, or attending a conference, Out Houses are a great way to spend time making good memories with other youth. This is also a great
opportunity to invite friends out to meet others in our group.

Chapel:During these nights, the FNY Band leads youth in a time of Worship through music and a gospel centered message. We also play a variety of games and share information about ongoing and upcoming FNY events.

SMJH: Sunday Morning Junior High is for students in grades 7 & 8 and takes place during 1st and 2nd service in Room W304. Classes are occasionally cancelled so that our students may participate in the main service or other events. We will ensure that notice is given a minimum of two weeks in advance.

As you get together with your group each week, you will have the opportunity to share what God has been revealing to you through the week’s readings, journal entries and prayer. You will also learn from one another as the Holy Spirit works to comfort, encourage and guide each member. Contact us to register, or just show up!
