You think you are the only one who doesn’t fit church? Teens, probably more than ever, don’t fit traditional church. With issues like social media, sexuality, ethics and everything in between, teens are growing up in a tough world.
The good news is, we can help them navigate their world, connect with their unique spirituality, and start making their world a little better
Switch is a program designed specifically for teens in grades 6-12. It happens every second week on Sunday at the same time as the adult meeting time (they just have Slurpees, donuts, and ice cream instead of coffee). Switch is designed to be a safe space where teens can ask questions, express doubts and just be themselves. It is simply put, a place to belong. The Switch service is followed by a lunch and event (typically from 11:30 am -3 pm), things such as hosting on a BBQ for those experiencing homelessness in Calgary, the Amazing Race, or even a week in Mexico helping locals build houses for families who have never experienced the safety of their own home.
All teens in grades 6-12 are welcome.
