Encounter | Grades 10-12


About Encounter

Encounter exists to help grade 10-12 students know Jesus Christ personally and carry on His ministry as they navigate the last years of high school, partnering with parents in equipping them in faith for graduation and beyond. Our aim is that they ground their identity in Christ, gain perspective in how they fit into God’s plan, and embrace the call to obediently follow Him.

Weekends at Encounter

Upside-Down Kingdom: Stories July 7, 14 & 21,  August 11, 18 & 25.
Jesus’ life shows us that God works in ways that are contrary to the way the world works. Jesus often taught through parables and stories to illustrate what God’s Kingdom is like. This summer, we’re talking about those stories.

Hotcakes and Stories July 28 @ 9:30am in the Secret Garden
Come on out for a pancake breakfast out in the secret garden (just off the parking lot.) Parents are welcome to join us too. Pancakes will be ready at 9:30am, followed by worship and an Upside-Down Kingdom story.


Tuesdays at Encounter


Upside-Down Kingdom: Beatitudes July 9 & 23, August 6 & 20, 7-9:30pm
When Jesus introduced the Kingdom of God, He turned everyone’s expectations upside down. We’re going to spend Tuesdays this summer talking about a portion of the Sermon on the Mount, where Jesus vividly displayed how different our lives can be when we live for God.


Colour War  July 16, 7-9:30pm. $5.
All you need to know: wear white, get coloured!

Mid-Summer Night July 30, 7-9:30pm. $5.

Larger Than Life Games Night August 13, 7:00-9:30pm. $5.
It’s a night of massive fun! We’re taking games you know and love and blowing them up to be bigger than you’ve seen them before. It’s going to be a blast!
