CRYouth is a community of students who are seeking Jesus together. No matter where we are in our faith journey this a place to ask questions, a place to belong, and a place to have fun while we're doing those things.
And I commend joy, for man has no good thing under the sun but to eat and drink and be joyful, for this will go with him in his toil through the days of his life that God has given him under the sun.
CRYouth doesn't just gather, we also scatter and take the gospel to the world around us, whether in our schools, sports teams, drama clubs or through serving our community in need as the sent of Christ.
WHAT WE DO
This winter we're continuing to look at the book of Genesis in our "In the Beginning" series and seeing what God speaks into our modern world from the very start of human existence.
We'll also be taking breaks here and there to talk about lots of other topics that face youth today, all from a Biblical and Christ-centred standpoint.
Every other week we split off Juniors and Seniors and take time to chat in small groups over our fall video series.
For our Sr.'s, we're watching the "Truth and Dare" series from RIGHTNOW MEDIA. This series of interviews explores the rescuing work of Jesus in real life stories from people in all walks of life, rappers, sports figures, and even people who God has rescued from the adult entertainment industry.
Our Jr.'s, are looking closely at who is the greatest in God's kingdom in the Francis Chan led, "Greater Than" series, also by RIGHTNOW MEDIA.
The first Sunday of every month we encourage youth and families to attend one of our gatherings together. Youth are a big part of Christ's church and the church is a huge part of youth ministry!
During the rest of each month, Jr. and Sr. youth gather as a group for a time of teaching. This winter we're continuing to look at the "Life" series by YM360. This is a 52-lesson Bible study that aims equip your students to understand exactly what it means to live as a follower of Christ.
The last Sunday of every month we come together to have a huge breakfast prepared by some of our awesome parents or community groups. Not only do we eat together but we also have those who've prepared the food share their own faith journies with all the many ups and downs.
