Experience Youth Group is a completely free Youth Group that meets in the basement of East Olds Baptist Church almost every Friday Night! We play games, talk about God, and have some great times! We have been abiding by the rules set out by the Alberta Government to the best of our ability and we welcome you to come and join in a night of Fun. We will be taking the utmost care to keep everyone safe. We will be going through the Book of James. Starting in June for four weeks we will be doing a short series called 3D Jesus. A look at how the four gospels give us a clear image of who Jesus was while on Earth. A schedule of events can be found down below.
If you are a parent or guardian of a youth and would like to know what opportunities there are for your youth coming up you can join the What'sApp here: What's App Parents Group we can also contact you through discord Discord Chat for the Youth or Instagram @eygpastor. (There is an Instagram chat for the youth for upcoming events. Also, we are updating our Facebook group as well: EYG Facebook Group. Just text Pastor Chris for more information. 403-501-4705.
We still abide by our core tenants during this time: God, friendship, safety, intentionality: Our mission at EYG is to first and foremost teach the gospel to the youth, to have fun, inclusive Bible study times that teach the importance of the Bible, God’s great love, and the joy of being a Christian. Secondly, we want to encourage friendship through games, ice breakers, and events throughout the year. Also, we want it to be a safe and secure environment (that doesn’t mean injuries don’t happen). We will do our best to keep the youth safe, to have a place they can go where they can be a youth, and enjoy their Friday nights. Finally, we have the big word...intentionality. We want to put everything into this youth group. The idea of intentionality is that we will focus on bringing the youth in, teaching them what is important, and giving our all to developing the group. We will be intentional!
We welcome all youth ages Jr. High to Sr. High (Age 12-Gr.12).
