Last Week of Youth before Summer...

Well, the time has not come... We are heading into the last week of youth before we take a small break for the summer holidays!!  This week will be a great night as we will be meeting out at the Reimer's home (see address below) for a campfire hang out night!!

You can feel free to bring your bathing suits as there is a pool there to swim in.  But we will also be playing some great outdoor games, hanging out around the fire and chatting about the exciting NEW Youth Programs we will be running come September...  The night is going to be a great night for all so please make it a point to be there!!
Please bring drinks for yourself as the leaders will be bringing everything food wise you need for a great night around the campfire :)
We will be running from 7-10 this week just so everyone is aware and we will have anyone that will be going into Grade 6, 7 or 8 next year with us as well!!  
See you all on Friday night....

Youth Update - May 19th

Good morning all...

This week we have decided to bring back a CLASSIC.... This Friday will be a battle to see who will come out on top after a fun filled night of "Bigger and Better"...!!  That's right, we will all start with a small, useless item and will try to turn it into the BIGGEST and BEST item by a simple trading process...
We will be giving you approximately 90 minutes to get out and make any and all trades to see who can WIN!!
Looking forward to a great night of fun and excitement!!
See you all at 7:00 as the church...

Sky Zone

Good evening all...

Friday night, as discussed last week is Sky Zone in Cambridge!!  You will need to bring $30.00 or so (depends on your appetite) as jumping will cost everyone $25.00 (if you still have your socks you can save a few dollars) we will be stopping somewhere for snacks afterwards...!!
We need to know (sorry for the late notice) by the end of the day tomorrow so we can ensure we have appropriate drivers and vehicles at the church.  So please reply to this email so we are aware and prepared :)
These nights are always a blast and great for you to bring a friend as the night is very laid back and full of FUN!!
We can't wait to see everyone on Friday.

Youth = FUN

Good afternoon all...
This week we will be meeting at the church as we have some AWESOME new games planned for the group...  I've attached a video of one of the games we will be playing (we won't have all the bells and whistles but it will still be awesome) so you are not going to want to miss it..!!
After the games we will have a quick service as we continue to build on the Freshwind words for our group!!  Everyone that was at youth last week received a card with "What God says about me..." and we will be digging into a few of them and how we know they are TRUE!!
Friday is going to be absolutely awesome and we can't wait to see you all there....
Normal time 7-9.

Re-Freshwind

Hey Hey Hey...

This week we will be spending some time chatting about what God did last weekend at Freshwind within our group... We will be sharing stories, chatting about what's changed as we take hold of the truths that were exposed and live free!!
If you were not at Freshwind DON'T be discouraged!!  You should come and hear about what happened and we will be praying to hold tight to this momentum within the group (which you are included in if you were at Freshwind or not)...
The night will run from 7-9 at the church as usual.
Look forward to seeing you all out!!

Freshwind Update...

Good evening all,

First and foremost, happy week leading up to Freshwind 2017!!  Obviously we will not be having Youth at the church this week as we will be in Toronto.  If you are not coming to Freshwind, you will have the night off (as unfortunate as that is)...
Here are the IMPORTANT notes for Freshwind:
1. Meeting at the Nelson's home (8 Brier Cres.) for 4:15 SHARP on Thursday.  Please be sure you've eaten before arriving as we will not be stopping for food until after service (10:00 or so).
2. Try not to go too crazy with bags as EVERY seat is full in vehicles so luggage space will be at a premium.
3. What to bring
- Money for your meals... We will need to buy 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners (and typically 1 snack meal at McD's after service on Thursday) - Clean cloths for EVERYDAY of the conference.  - Deodorant and more deordorant - Bible, paper and pen(s) - Blankets if you have some to hold spots in the floor - Snacks and drinks for yourself in the hotel
4. What…

This week at Youth...

Hey Everyone!!
The excitement is mounting as we are only 1 week away from FRESHWIND 2017!!!!!  We have registered, the hotel rooms are booked and I hope you are all EXPECTING the best from the long weekend away (link for conference details http://freshwindlife.com/conference/)!!  
Having said that, this week we will be getting together at the church to hang out, play some games and chat a little bit about the fact that God is not just about a weekend... It's going to be a great night and we hope a great lead into our upcoming Freshwind trip!!
Usual time 7-9 and we look forward to seeing everyone on Friday!!
~ Distinct Youth Leaders
Please NOTE - there is an attachment on the email for Heath Card information.  If you are coming to Freshwind we MUST have one of these forms completed to ensure all appropriate information is on file before we go away!!

This Friday at Youth!!

Good afternoon everyone!!

Just wanted to let you know know that we are tentatively set to go bowling this Friday night!!  We will meet at the church and travel together to the bowling ally... You should come with $10.00 - $12.00 each as that will cover your lane and shoes but if you want to get yourself a snack or drink while we are there it might take a little more!!  Regular time 7-9.
On another note, we ABSOLUTELY NEED to know who is coming to Freshwind today!!  Sarah is hoping to complete registration (which is covered by the way with the money we raised at the Survivor night) tomorrow evening...  So please reply to this email as soon as you can so we can make sure all YOUTH are registered that want to attend...
Thanks,

~ Distinct Youth Leaders

Survivor Night & Freshwind Update

Hey everyone!!

Two things we wanted to throw out there to everyone and do actually require an update / response of some sort...  You all should be aware that this Friday is our annual Survivor Night and we will need as many hands there as possible, not only to serve and potentially play, but also to ensure the church sees you as it's always better when they know who their money is going to impact!!
1. We need to know if you are planning to attend on Friday so we know how many we have and whose doing what.
2. We need to know (like ASAP) who is planning to come to Freshwind this year.  The costs have been discussed in the past (approximately $50 registration, $50 for hotel and $50 for food) and the event runs Easter weekend (Thursday - Saturday) just as a reminder.  Registration will have to happen in the next week or so which is why we need to know who is planning to attend soon.
Friday is going to be a great night and Jared is continuing to tell everyone he's a lock for RETURN…

Youth on March 3rd...

Hey all you crazy youthites (yes I can make up my own words from time to time)....
This week we will be hanging out at the church playing some games and doing our thing... Jake will be sharing what God has put on his heart specifically tying into the Freshwind conference theme of Courage!!
It will be a great night and the first step towards our upcoming Freshwind weekend.
Can't wait to see you all there!!

COST - $21.00 + HST for 2 hours of tubing (we will be stopping for a snack on the way home so we recommend sending your child with $30.00)

If the weather isn't cooperating (to warm or the ice isn't able to be used) we will change course but please still come prepared to be outside as we will likely still go for Tim Horton's
