Church MICE

Are You Ready For Worshiplude!?!?!?

Meeting In Christian Education!

The Church MICE are a youth group of the Southern region of Ontario, who get together and discuss a variety of different topics in the safe environment of each others company.

We provide a safe space for youth from all sorts of backgrounds, with all sorts of questions, to come together and be in community with one another. This is also a safe space for youth in the LGBTQ+ community to come and participate, judgement free.

Activities include movie nights, game nights, outdoor hikes, scavenger hunts, and so much more. The youth travel to other cities for conferences and special services, which gives them the chance to meet a wider community of youth all focusing on their own spiritual growth.

We offer two different age ranges. The teenagers, which range in ages from 13 - 18, meet on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm. The majority of those discussions focus around the importance of
"Following The Hero's Call."

The second group is the young adults, which range in ages from 19-25, and they meet every second Sunday afternoon from 1:30-3pm. The majority of those discussions focus around the challenge of "Identifying Your Call." 


Looking to participate? It's easy! Send an email to sjsprograms@gmail.com or check out the upcoming events, and just show up!

What's Coming Up?

We have events happening every week, and they are varied to include everyone's interests. If you have an idea for an event that isn't already listed, feel free to share it during one of the meetings, and we will try to incorporate it into further programming.

Note the addresses and dates of each activity, so that you make sure that you're joining us at the right time and place! We can't wait to see you!

Check out the schedule to see what's going on during the upcoming weeks!

*Note that the schedule is subject to change without notice.

Following the Hero's Call

God calls each of us along our own journeys. Those journey's can be hard, and sometimes we try hard not to go through with it. But following the call set out for us is important.

Meet with us as we discuss the meaning of following your call by watching every movie of the MCU, in order. Beginning with Iron Man (2008) and going all the way to Endgame (2019).

We will find ourselves through the challenges of others. 


 

Identifying Your Call

We often look at the bible, and other stories, to discuss the call of the characters. This program gives us the chance to delve into what our own, personal calls might be in the world. 

Meet with us as we discuss ourselves and our impact on the world around us through program creation, excursions and activities. 

We find ourselves through community with others.


 

A MICE Led Future

 

Want to meet some of our youth and see what they have to say? Check out our interview series "A MICE Led Future!"
 

Do you have something you would like to share in an interview for the church? Let me know and we can schedule a date to work together!

Moving forward, we will also be beginning an "Intergenerational Dialogue" series between the youth and some of the older generations of the church, to discuss the different ways that the church has evolved. Keep checking back for info on that!
