Deer Park Youth Drop-In
All youth are invited to meet our youth ministry staff each Friday night from September to June for fun, engaging activities.
Friday Night Drop-In is an inclusive hang out space for youth. Come eat dinner, play games, and hang out from 7-9 every Friday (with more details on the front door of the church). Occasionally we play Wii, have movie nights, and have special guest chefs! Grades 6-12 welcome.
On Sunday morning,our children’s program is organized to be fun while also allowing children and youth to experience and learn the Christian faith. Preschoolers through grade six are guided in Bible Stories and lessons with activity centres designed for their age groups such as art, movement and music, multi-media, drama, science, games, cooking and more. Outreach is often a component of our programming with the aim that children learn concrete ways to help others. Activities have included filling backpacks in September for homeless families in the Inn from the Cold program, collecting sunflower seeds for High River and collecting food for the Food Bank.
Some recent themes include: the story of Martha & Mary, the story of Ruth, the Lord’s Prayer, the Easter Story, Jonah and the Whale and the Good Samaritan.
Sunday morning preschool and infant care is provided. A parent may drop their child off with our experienced, vetted and CPR/First Aid certified Nursery leaders or stay with their child.
