Programming for teenagers
Here’s an opportunity to spend time with people who get where you’re at, who care about some of the same things that you do – spirituality, justice and community – and want to talk about it.
We meet almost every two weeks: either for lunch on Sunday, at noon in the Fellowship Room, or some other time on the weekend for an event in the community. We’re hoping to volunteer and do advocacy, go out to performances, spend time in nature, and we’ll combine the meaningful experiences with some fun. The group leads: what we do will depend on what you’re interested in and your input will direct where we go.
This group is committed to being fully inclusive, in all aspects of our life and work, of people of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and gender identities.
If you’re interested in the program, please contact Daniel Reed, Minister of Children and Youth. Information about upcoming events will be here.
Want to officially join the church?
Confirmation is the primary way that people become members of the church. It is an opportunity to affirm our baptism, learn about our faith, ask tough questions, discern our gifts for leadership and become full members of the Fairlawn Avenue United Church community.
At Fairlawn, we ask that you be at least in high-school before beginning the confirmation process. In 2017, we will be holding confirmation classes in November and December, as well as a confirmation service on Epiphany Sunday (January 7th, 2018).
