If you are in Grade 8-12 come join us for our Youth Group Activities. You may want to participate in our mystery trip? Our scavenger hunt? Our mystery supper? Or join us for a service trip?
LEADERSHIP - YOUTH SPONSORS
Our Youth leadership team is made up of parents, sponsors and youth. Please contact our youth leaders by clicking here.
We welcome youth and their friends for Sunday school after worship on Sunday morning for biblically based topical discussions. Please meet us in the Youth Room at 11:15am on Sunday mornings.
In addition to Sunday school, our Youth Group meets socially once per month (usually the last monthly Friday). Our gatherings include such things as table top or outdoor games, BBQ & pool parties, roller skating, sledding, hiking, scavenger hunts, a Mystery Trip, a Progressive Dinner, and Christmas Party.
We also encourage participation in Youth Retreats and events organized by regional groups such as Mennonite Church Eastern Canada.
Valleyview wants to provide Youth with opportunities for Service! We believe Service is a key part of how we walk in Jesus’ Footsteps. Our Youth have been active in service projects in Canada, USA, and Guatemala.
At Valleyview we celebrate milestones for our Youth!
A milestone is an intentional celebration of key milestones or “markers” along life’s journey which have opportunity to shape faith as we grow and change. Their purpose is to strengthen and nurture the faith of those experiencing a particular milestone, as well as the entire faith community. Upon graduating high school, Youth are presented with a hand knotted quilt.
MENNONITE SUMMER CAMP EXPERIENCE
Valleyview realizes the significant importance of a Mennonite summer camp experience for all children. Valleyview commits to subsidize camper fees of children actively participating in our Sunday school program and church life. Annually, the subsidy amount is determined by contributions to the Camp Sponsorship Fund for up to a maximum one week of overnight summer camp at Silver Lake Mennonite Camp, Hidden Acres Mennonite Camp, or Ontario Mennonite Music Camp.
