Welcome to Oakridge Youth 19/20!
We’ve got some new information for our new season of ministry below. Some important highlights are:
- Email List – To make sure you never miss an update, sign up below!
- Waiver – Every year we need a new Youth Information Form filled out. Link at the bottom of the page!
Thursday Nights — Rooted — 6:30-7:45pm Starting October 17
Thursday nights are for Rooted! Every week we will learn from God’s Word, memorize a passage from the Bible, work on a creative project, and have a time for games. To register, print and fill out the Child/Youth Information Form and bring it on a Thursday night, along with the one-time $25 fee.
If you are in grade 8: You are welcome to continue to join in with the Rooted program, or you may be eligible to volunteer with Treehouse on Thursday nights instead. For details, check out the bottom of the page here.
Sunday Mornings — GLO — 10:30am
Every Sunday morning we meet in the sanctuary for music and singing with the rest of the church. Partway through the service, after the offering, when the kids dismissal happens, head to the GLO room (in the back corner beside the board room). This year we are going to engage in interactive teaching and discussion that follows along with the topic of the main service Sermon Series. So parents, don’t be afraid to talk to your kids about what they learned about — it will most likely be very similar to what you did! Make sure to bring your Bible!
One big update: starting this year, we will not be having GLO class on the first Sunday of each month. We feel this is a great way to introduce our children to sitting in church and learning from someone different, especially since on first Sundays they’re in for communion already and we’re following the same sermon series.
A few times per year — All Youth Socials — Next date: TBA
We will be having a few All Youth Social events throughout the school year — in the past these have included board-game nights, church-wide dark games, laser tag, or our annual Christmas party/serve night. If you are interested in connecting with these social nights, please let us know what days and times you would be available.
For Grade 8s
Since grade 8 is a bit of a transition year, you are also invited to join in with our After Party events. You do not have to be a Treehouse volunteer to participate. Check out our Ridge page for more details.
If you would like to be added to our email list to get notified about upcoming youth programming and events, or if you have questions or concerns about our programming, please contact Pastor Andrew.
At the start of each new school year, each participant must fill out a new Child/Youth Information Form. Please print and fill out this form and bring it to your first youth event.
