Small Group Night (OFFSITE)


We have an upcoming offsite youth night. We will be breaking off into our small groups to spend time intentionally in community.
The pick up and drop times will will stay the same but each small group will be at a different location.
The locations will be in the next update to follow!


Route 6 (for grade 6) Friday, October 19th, 6:30-8pm. THEME: Pumpkin Extravaganza-a fun, fall festivity night. Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins! We will be playing a plush pumpkin dodge ball game and decorate pumpkins together.  TALK: With the aftermath of thanksgiving, we will talk about thankfulness and showing our appreciation of others. We will also have a chance to share what we are thankful for.

The Rally- the Youth Groups of Vernon will be coming together on Friday, October 19th, 2018 from 7- 9pm. It will be a great time for students to connect further with students within their own schools & have fun together.

 Xonca Youth Missions Trip:  An information meeting will be held on Saturday, October 13th after the Saturday evening service

Applications are open for the last Youth team (grades 10-12) during Spring Break 2019. For info contact Len or Dwayne at xonca@vernonalliance.org  
When: The trip will be the first week of Spring Break, approximately March 16 to 24, 2019. The exact dates will be confirmed once team is confirmed and tickets are purchased.
Travel Details: Travel time from Kelowna to Guatemala City will be approximately 12-16 hours. Driving time to Nebaj will be about 7-8 hours on windy and often bumpy road.
Accommodations: In Nebaj we will stay in a 2 star hotel. The rooms are clean. There is running water most of the time. There may be no hot water in hotel rooms. There will be bugs and/or spiders.  Xonca is a 25 minute drive from Nebaj, the last part being a very bumpy road. Walking up the steps to the school may not sound like much but at 2100 meters (7000 feet) it takes some effort. Once in Xonca we will spend our time on the project or with the kids. We will also visit some of the sponsored children and their families.
Food: The food will likely be different then what people in Vernon are used to, but good. Special diets are very challenging to accommodate in Guatemala and will be assessed on an individual basis.  
Here is the good stuff. The country is beautiful. The kids are wonderful. The FH staff love what they do. And they love Jesus.  
The total cost is approximately $2,600. Cost: $1,200 will be required once you have been accepted to the team to secure flights. Our hope it that fundraising and donations will cover the balance. If not then the balance will be your responsibility to pay.
Please send Chett a reply as soon as possible to let him know if you are interested and he will email you the application. Applications need to be in by October 15th, 2018. (Please let us know if you have any major health issues such as heart condition or significant allergy.) Just because you fill out an application doesn’t put you on the team. FH and VAC are trying to put together the best team possible for the community of Xonca.
