Senior Youth Group

For Grades 7 to 12.

Young people have a lot going on in their lives, and we don’t want you to have to choose between soccer games, dance recitals, or homework—and youth group. We want your time to count. So we have bigger youth events less often! From sleepovers and retreats to a day in the corn maze, our monthly youth activities are sure to grab your interest.

Senior youth are invited to attend our IGNITEworship services once a month on Fridays and stay for dinner after to connect with other youth. We host large events every quarter. Our next major event is the All-Night Easter Prayer Vigil happening on Thursday, April 13th.

Youth are also invited to participate in the wider church through camps, service, retreats and worship. The Vancouver Youth and Young Adults website has more information at
