At Canvas, our desire for students (grade 6-12) to encounter Jesus, build Biblical Community, and share that experience with others, while having a whole lot of fun! To achieve this goal, we engage in several different environments through the week:
WEDNESDAY NIGHT COMMUNITY GROUP
Here is our Wednesday night calendar…
- Alpha Wrap-up – February 28, 2018
- Fun Night Games – March 7, 2018
- Break for Spring Break – March 14, 21, 28
- Steps to Experiencing God - (April 4, 2018 to May 30, 2018): Students in grade 6-12 join us on Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. April 4 through May 30 as we walk through an amazing resource: “Steps to Experiencing God” with the author, Pastor Mike Blackaby. Students, this will be a great opportunity to learn and grow in your faith under the teaching of our Oak Bay Campus Pastor for this 8-week series this spring. The group will take place at the Austin Home in the Highlands. We will break up Junior High and Senior High. If you have questions please email Courtney@canvaschurch.ca or Ashley@canvaschurch.ca
At Canvas Students, we believe that all of our stories—all of our lives—are being divinely painted on a canvas that is bigger than we can see. So, each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m., the students start with everyone at Canvas for a time of praise & worship and then they meet for Bible Study and fellowship as they seek to discover where their lives fit into the story of God. Once a month the students join the adults in the larger gathering so that families with students can enjoy being together being together.
Beginning in January 2018 on Sunday mornings, Students (6-8, 9-12) will begin a new series titled: Jesus Studies. These studies will cut through the confusion, teaching students a Christ-centered look at the major issues they deal with in life. Here are some of the areas we will cover: Jesus and identity, Jesus and your faith, Jesus and culture, Jesus and loving other, Jesus and tough times, Jesus and your image, Jesus and your stress, Jesus and forgiveness, Jesus and influence, Jesus and relationships, Jesus and mean people, Jesus and your future, and Jesus and stuff.
FRIDAY NIGHTS: FELLOWSHIP AND FUN
Our monthly Friday night fellowships were created to give students an opportunity to gather and have fun. We believe that amid all the pressures of teenage life, our students sometimes need to take a break and have good healthy fellowship! Our next Friday Night Fellowship is a a Christmas Games Night on Friday, December 8 from 630 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Save the dates of January 26, March 2, and April 27 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 pm. for our winter and spring Friday Night Fellowships!
