Hello Parents and youth of the COR13 youth ministry!

September has come again this year as it has every year. With September also comes our youth ministry programming. We are looking to start having COR13 Youth Group (gr. 7-12) every Friday at the church from 7-9:30pm, starting on September 11th. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program will be a little bit different as we make every effort to keep students and volunteers safe, as well as adhere to our governments guidelines. A document outlining our pandemic policy has been attached below for you to view.

Along with our weekly Friday program, we also have other programs for youth, here is some information about those programs:

Morning Prayer:
Still happening! our first morning praying together will be Tuesday, September 8th. Students will need to wear masks during our prayer time, and physically distance as per school guidelines. One change to our prayer time will be location. instead of meeting in amongst the cars, let’s meet on the grass on the west end of the building. This will be a safer place for us to gather as students will not need to walk through the parking lot as much.

Lunch Meetings:
The school is not currently allowing visitors in the school, therefore I am not able to join students during lunch hour. However, if students are permitted to leave campus during lunch hour, they may arrange to come to my house (the second house west of the high school) if they so choose. students should message me in the morning or talk to me at prayer to ensure that I will be at home during their lunch hour.

Mid-week Bible study:
A new program that I would like to introduce for the youth is a weekly Bible study that takes us deeper. In this Bible study I aim to bring a biblical perspective to the hard questions that students are asking each day as they grow through adolescents. This study will happen on Wednesday nights from 7pm-9pm. While Friday night remains our main youth night, this Wednesday Bible study is designed for students who want more, to go deeper and to bring God into every part of their daily life. Our first Wednesday Bible study will happen on September 16th.

Events:
At this time we do not have any events planned. This year we may have to do fewer special events, and each event will take great time and care to plan as we make every effort to protect our students, volunteers and families, as well as adhere to our government’s guidelines and the guidelines of the business that we work with when doing our various events. I ask for patience in this regard as I work hard to bring as much value and opportunity as I can to the lives of our youth.

Online Options
While I am still exploring the various online options, I am currently planning to record the message at youth group each week and posting it to our youth page on the church website, www.brightviewchurch.ca/cor13 . Students who are sick or feel uncomfortable attending the youth program in person will still be able to view the message online and can connect with their youth leader during the week as they choose.

I am very much looking forward to another exciting year of COR13 Youth Group. If you have any questions about our program, policies, or anything else, I am available for you.

May the Lord lead us this year as we journey together.
