Youth Campfire

It has been a long time since we have all been together in person - March 8 by my recollection. That's 3 months ago exactly from today. Now that we have progressed through Stage 1 of the relaunch and they have increased the number of people who can gather outside - let's gather!


We are going to have a Campfire at Bowness Park on June 23 starting at 6pm. Feel free to come by at any point that evening and stay for as long as you are able. We will plan to be at Picnic Site 1 (the site at the far East end of the park). 


QUICK DETAILS

WHEN: Tuesday, June 23 @ 6pm

WHAT: Bowness Park Campfire

WHO: All Students Grade 6-12

WHERE: Bowness Park Picnic Site 1

WHAT TO BRING: Folding chair, food and drink for the evening, roasting stick


We are not yet completely out of the woods with COVID-19 and, therefore, there will be guidelines that must be followed. Please check your email for this attachment. These may change as we get closer to the date if some of the restrictions are further lifted. I will send out updated guidelines closer to the time of the event that better reflect the CMOH recommendations.


Some highlights:

  • parents will need to email landra.jenn@gmail.com on the date of the event to confirm that their students do not have any symptoms of COVID-19, have not travelled internationally in the past 14 days, and have not come in contact with someone who has COVID-19 sysmptoms or who tested positive for COVID-19
  • we will be unable to provide food. However, students are welcome to bring their own roasting sticks and items to cook on the fire. These will not be allowed to be shared between families. 
  • we must maintain physical distancing - no hugs, high fives, hand shakes, or other PDA.


Looking forward to gathering in person!

Online Youth Events

Everything changed and we are looking at a brand new normal for the foreseeable future. Our church is committed to staying active. We have services online (Facebook, and www.hawkwod.ca) as well as forms where you can request prayer, request help and offer help.


Our Youth group wants to Stay Connected to God and to One Another. Here are some ideas for how that can look.

1. Zoom Hangouts - Monday, Wednesday, & Friday at 4pm

Have Some Fun together using ZOOM

We are going to host hangouts on Zoom for about 1 hour on specific weekdays. These times include games and devotionals.

PYRO ZOOM Guidelines

  • Wear Appropriate Clothing (like you would wear to school)
  • Commit to Pure Speech (spoken & written)
  • Ask Permission from your Parents


2. Small Groups Can Stay Connected with WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a messaging app that is available on all cell phone platforms. Students do need to share their information with one another to gain contacts. 


Let's stay connected! 

Together we can encourage each other and serve our community.

Regular Events (When we can meet in person)

Our youth group is for students in Grades 7-12. We meet together on Friday nights and Sunday mornings.

“Pay Attention. Show Compassion” is our theme for 2019/2020. We care about those around us and model ourselves after Jesus. He saw the needs of the people around him and showed them compassion.

Check out the events page to see what is next. We meet weekly on Friday nights although we do divide into two different groups.

Our students are super involved in service at our Church as well. You will find youth helping with kids ministry, ushering, playing on the worship teams and helping out where we can.

Discipleship is a big deal to us. Jesus teaches us how to live, and discipleship is about helping one another live out his teachings. Students can join Discipleship Groups which meet from 9:00 - 10:00 on Sunday mornings.

Here is a link that you can use to see our teaching outlines for the 2019-2020 year (to date).
