On November 2nd, following morning worship, Senior High Teens and College & Career Young Adults are invited to meet on the Youth Floor for lunch (pizza & drinks) followed by a 45-60 min workshop on Restorative Justice by Theatre of the Beat. In this FREE, unique, participatory workshop our group will be transported back in time, to 1974, in the recently vandalized community of Elmira, ON. Two men have been apprehended and YOU must decide their fate!
• Play drama activities from Augusto Boal’s “Games for actors and non-actors”
• Compare the “three questions” asked by Restorative and Punitive justice
• Learn the historic roots of Sentencing Circles, based on First Nation’s philosophies
• Recreate real life characters from small town Elmira using a “Character Walk”
• Experience how Sentencing Circles work first hand, participating in a dramatic reenactment
How can you attend?: Sign-up at the Connection Centre Desk or contact the church at (506)458-8348
As part of our Loving Out Loud serving projects are youth will be preparing and serving a Turkey Dinner to our downtown guests. Here is the info that you will need to know:
Date: Sunday, October 19th
Time: If you are willing to help, team members will be working through the afternoon. All youth should be on site and ready to serve no later than 4:00pm. We should be done by around 7:00pm.
Dress: We will be cooking and serving in the kitchen. You will want to dress accordingly and bring an apron to protect from stains.
Why: The Bible calls us to “Love God and Love Others”. Serving others is just one way to show God’s love to others.
On Friday, October 17th, we are hosting a combined “Board Games Cafe” evening. We will be serving a mixture of free cold drinks and snacks. Bring along your favourite board game or card game.
Frequently Asked Question: Is this just a board games event?
Answer: Nope. We will also have the pool table, air hockey, ping pong, video games, etc. set up as options. There will be lots of choices.
At the beginning of Middle School Youth Group this Friday, October 10th, we are making our own pizzas! You know what you like on your pizza so we are asking all Middle School teens to bring their favourite toppings. If you like extra cheese, bring some shredded cheese. If you are a meat lover, you may want to bring some freshly cooked ground beef and chopped pepperoni. And, of course, there will be games while the pizzas cook. Come along, bring a friend, and a bit of hunger too.
On Friday, October 10th, our Senior High Youth Group is changing things up and spending the night baking sweets. Why, you say? Because sweets are yummy and because some of the sweets that we are making will be used for the Third Sunday Supper that we are hosting on the 19th of the month. Come along and bring your sweet tooth with you.
