FAMILY MINISTRY

Family ministry is close to our hearts here at Forest Brook. Our family council works hard to provide programming for our kids and youth that teaches them more about Jesus and His incredible love for them.  We also work to equip parents and grandparents to be able to engage and dialogue with their kids and grand-kids on faith matters.  We also pride ourselves on being a "whole village" kind of church, that has many leaders, mentors and other interested adults who love to speak into the lives of our young people. 

Our Church is "Orange"

If we symbolize the home with the colour red for the love and heart that the home provides and if we symbolize the church with yellow for shining the light on who Jesus is, we see a powerful combination in the lives of the next generation.


This “greater impact together” we symbolize by the colour…. Orange!


We encourage families to invest in their homes while connecting their kids and teens to the powerful message of The Kingdom of God through this church community. 


We want the next generation to have strong, resilient and thoughtful Faith, leading the church into the future with the confidence and power of the Holy Spirit.

Orange October

Each fall as the greens of summer change to the yellows, reds and orange, we, as a church, turn our attention to the next generation and the incredible impact that the combination of the home and the church can have on our children and youth; helping them to grow, mature and discover more and more about who they are and who they are in Christ.


We call it “Orange October” to remind us that these two spheres – the home and the church – are a powerful force in the life of a person when they work in combination.

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

In partnership with parents, the Children's Ministry program seeks to create a dynamic, fun, safe, loving and spiritually-enriching environment that provides young children with the opportunity to discover God, experience faith and learn the life-guiding principles of the Bible. 

Sunday Worship

Children in Junior Kindergarten through Grade 6 participate in their own weekly high-energy, interactive worship program that includes music, media-driven curriculum, games and small group gatherings and communicate biblical truths in ways that will impact the children well beyond their time at church on Sunday mornings. Age-appropriate curriculum reflects the vision and objectives of the larger community of faith. 

Nursery and


Preschool Care

Nursery care is provided for infants and toddlers aged newborn to 36 months. The large, bright, fully-equipped nursery is located on the main level just outside the sanctuary, while toddlers (18 months) join the pre-school area down in the lower level. Safety is a top priority and security procedures permit only the person who checks the child in to check him/her out of the nursery or pre-school area. A team of loving care givers is dedicated to nurturing each child physically, emotionally and spiritually. Children learn about God's love for them through stories, songs and fun activities designed just for little ones!

Baby Dedication

A baby dedication is a commitment to raise and nurture a child according to God's word and God's ways through teaching, example, discipline and prayer.  Through dedication, the parent's commit themselves and their child to God and to providing every opportunity and encouragement to the child to make their own personal commitment to Christ as they grow older.  Our congregation also enthusiastically promises to support and pray for the family as they raise their child.  Baby dedications are scheduled during our regular Sunday morning services several times a year.

YOUTH MINISTRY

All of what we do with youth here at Forest Brook flows from those four ideals. We trust and hope that what we do here is transforming the lives of youth.  We also hope that with our presence in the community and in the lives of families that we are able to effectively reach and engage youth and truly challenge them to connect with one another and with God.

Tuesday Nights

Junior (Grades 7 & 8) and Senior (High School) small groups meet on Tuesday nights, at 6:45 pm, here at the church - these groups are the crux of what we do in our Youth Ministry. Each is led by faithful mentors who foster a spirit caring and sharing and offer a friendly atmosphere for teens toe explore and develop their relationship with God through lively discussion and prayer.

Fun Events

We want to share Jesus Christ with others, so we regularly host special events for Junior High and Senior High youth to provide them with the opportunity to invite their non-church friends to experience the fun that goes on at FBCC.  These events are either on a Tuesday night, in place of small groups, or on the weekend. 

Retreats

Every Winter the FBCC youth chase away the winter blahs by escaping to Muskoka Bible Centre for a weekend of exciting activities, worship and spiritual refreshment.  This fully adult-supervised event begins on Friday night and ends Sunday afternoon. 

Youth Alpha

This fall, all our groups are working through the Brand New Youth Alpha course that was produced by Alpha Canada and released this Fall.  We're absolutely loving it!  


After getting feedback from youth leaders around the world, Alpha Canada put in countless hours into creating stronger, refined content. These changes help communicate ideas and content more effectively.


Youth Grades 7 to 12 can join us on Tuesday nights until the middle of December for Alpha  - we really think you'll enjoy it - anyone is welcome!

our Youth Pastor!
