Interested in a community where you can belong before you believe…and believe before you behave? Do you desire to be taken seriously in life? This is Boost!

Boost is the name of our Jr. High (Gr. 6-8) youth community at Parkwood Gospel Temple. Wednesday evenings 7-8:30pm, youth from across the Windsor/Essex county region meet in both large and small group settings. We also have some annual events like our winter snow retreat, Momentum Jr. High convention (Nov), lock-in, summer camp out, guys/girls night out, dodgeball and ball hockey tourney and more!

What can you expect when you show up to Boost? A typical Wednesday involves hang out time, snack cafe, fun games, praise & worship in song (2X month), relevant biblical teaching, and small group discussion in age, grade & gender-specific groups. Come early at 6:30 and chill in the Youth Lounge on the leather couches, watch music videos, play some foosball, video games, or air hockey, or shoot some hoops in the open gym. At 7pm we come together and get the night started! At the end of the night you can grab some more goodies in the Lounge (bring a loonie or two), or just chill out with your friends and small group leader. Plus, don’t miss out on our monthly B.A.R.F. (Bring A Real Friend) theme nights…it’s all the fun and craziness you can handle!

We also really value empowering community, and that’s why every youth is also part of a small group that is age, gender and grade-specific. The small group element is part of every Boost night…whether it’s a game/activity night, or part of the breakout discussion following a message/teaching. Each group has a caring, godly adult who facilitates discussion, as well as helps organize group outings. We also have some of our teenagers (gr. 10+) serving as co-leaders and/or ‘assistant coaches’ within the groups…it’s a great discipleship opportunity for our teens…as well as a way for our jr. high’s to be mentored and influenced by older youth who love Jesus!

We’re not just a youth group. We are a community of jr. high’s actively seeking to Know God, Own our faith, and make God and our faith Known. Hebrews 10:24-25 speaks of Christians helping to spur, encourage…or boost each other in our faith. Are you ready for a little Boost?
