Please read this note from Pastor Keith concerning some upcoming changes for the Youth Group scheduling come 2019:

From my years in serving in youth ministry there have been some essential aspects to a thriving youth ministry. 

  1. A safe place for the youth to come together and have some fun and be able to relax with their peers.
  2. The youth group needs a spiritual dimension so at each night there will be biblical teaching
  3. Part of our youth ministry should be outreach and this is where we are not always doing our best. 

One of our obstacles is our location, being 10km out of town doesn’t make us easily accessible to our community.  So, in conversations with the Town of Carstairs, we have been given the use of Hugh Sutherland school on Sunday evenings.  Starting in January, we will try doing our youth nights on Sundays from 7:00-9:30pm at Hugh Sutherland School.  I hope this will allow some Carstairs youth to start joining us as it will give us a presence in the community.  A secondary hope is that it will allow some of those youth who participate in school sports programs to join our youth on a more regular basis.  Keep praying for our youth ministry as we try to find ways for meeting more needs.

God bless,
Pastor Keith
