Village Jr. Youth exists to disciple students through an authentic community, teaching them how to live a life true to the gospel, and to share the gospel with others. In Jr. Youth, you will have the opportunity to meet new friends, connect with leaders, play fun games, hear relevant teaching, have meaningful discussions, and create lifelong memories.
Jr. Youth Sundays
Each week, our Jr. Youth students gather together to dive deeper into discipleship and connect their experiences with what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Each week there are games, time to hang out, and time in Small Groups with a Sunday Small Group Leader. Students will need to be checked-in at the New Family check-in or the iPads in the lobby.
Jr. Youth Midweek
Jr. Youth midweek is an ongoing rotation of Small Group Nights, Youth Nights, and Youth Events. These three types of gatherings will each serve a unique role in our pursuit to see students connect with Jesus, their leaders and each other.
Unless otherwise mentioned, Jr. Youth will meet on Thursdays from 6:45pm – 8:30pm at Berea Baptist Church (6062 132 St, Surrey, BC)
- Small Group Nights: Small Group Nights are an excellent way for students to gather together, build friendships, have fun experiences, discuss life and faith, and be cared for by their Small Group Leaders.
- Youth Nights: Youth Nights are meant to create a space where all of our students and their friends can interact with their faith through worship, relevant sermons, and meaningful Small Group discussions.
- Youth Events: At Village Youth, we value creating memorable experiences. These events are meant to be exciting and interactive experiences that our regular students would feel comfortable inviting their friends.

Rules and Expectations:
At this retreat, our goal is to facilitate an environment that is safe for all students. With this standard, we have zero tolerance for bullying, disrespecting leadership/facilities, or any substance use of any kind (vaping, smoking, drinking, or other narcotics). If a student chooses to disobey these rules and expectations, students will be sent home via being picked up by their parent/guardian.
No Cell Phone Policy:
There will be a NO CELL PHONE policy for students. Students are asked to leave their cell phones at home. Leaders will have cell phones in case of an emergency and Camp Luther’s phone number is (604) 826-7062, if parents need to contact their students.
Our goal is to create an atmosphere that is clear of distraction, safe, and intentional for students to connect with each other and with their leaders.
