We ran plenty of events over the last year! Check them out:
Free Summer Block Party
This year we ran our 2nd Block Party in Fraser Heights! We had over 500 people from the community come and join our event. Our summer intern, Ashleigh Ball, took the reigns for this year's event planning and got donations from local businesses, carnival games from other churches, food and drink donations from the community grocery store, and a government grant! It was all hosted in the parking lot of the Fraser Heights Rec Center.
Every year, Youth Church hosts its very own 5-day summer camp called iCamp! We run it during late August at Camp Luther in Mission, BC. We partnered with another Youth Church in Vancouver, as well as Westwood Church, and this year we had over 100 campers! iCamp is always a life-changing week and something everyone talks about for the whole year.
We ran a variety of fundraisers this year including:
Car washes, a girl's clothing swap, a community garage sale, a walkathon, and a Christmas gift wrapping service! Fundraisers are one of the ways we get young people involved and supporting the church they love, as well as a way to get into the community and spread out mission.
