Emergency Ministries (Grades 9–12)
Emergency Ministries is our family night ministry to Sr. High students (grades 9–12) which operates on Wednesday evenings from September through May. A typical evening includes a crowd breaker welcome, music from our Youth Band, a bible-oriented teaching and small group discussion, and an afterparty with games, food, and music.
Sr. High students also have the opportunity to attend two weekend conferences throughout the year—one in the spring and one in the fall. Each spring, students can travel to Overflow Youth Conference, a gathering of over 3,000 teenagers in Waterloo to worship, pray, and grow deeper in their faith. Each fall, students can travel to REMNANT, a youth retreat of about 100 teenagers from Windsor/Essex at Pearce William Christian Camping near London. REMNANT is a great way for students to develop a deeper relationship with each other and with God.Thanks to generous sponsorship from our church congregation, we are able to make these trips affordable for most teeangers who would like to go.
For our Sr. High students, Emergency Ministries is the Mingle stage of our 4M Discipleship, and we regularly challenge students to bring their friends to our Wednesday evening events.
