Youth Ministry Program

Guests in our morning Youth Ministry Program can expect authentic worship, interactive Bible study and engaging Skill sessions led by our trained Youth Ministry and Skills Team. Make sure that you register early to get your first choice(s) of Skill!

Not sure where to go, or what to expect? Consider taking the "Journey Through Fair Glen" on Sunday afternoons at 1:30PM! The cut-off for registering or changing Skills selections will be immediately following the “Journey Through Fair Glen” at 2:00PM. After this time, we encourage Youth to commit to the Skills they have chosen for the entire week (extenuating circumstances to be approved by the Youth Ministry Program Director).

Guests in our evening Youth Ministry Program can expect a variety of field games, and recreation events on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings. There is no evening program in Youth Ministry on Wednesday evenings, as we encourage all families and guests to enjoy our Merry Heart Show in the Irwin Chapel. Friday evenings are a highlight of the week as Children’s Program, Youth Program, and Adult Chapel Service “fuse” together for the Family Fusion Chapel Service. Youth meet in Fair Glen as usual for a time of fellowship (following the XT Friday Night BBQ), and walk over to Irwin Chapel as a group. Youth, children, and parents alike enjoy video highlights from the programs of the week, including prizes for Youth Ministry and Rec Program activities. We also have a Youth Ministry Fundraiser, including Bake Sale from our Skills Program, and T-Shirt Sale - to bring a taste of Fair Havens home!


Click here to register your children and youth online. Please keep in mind that the cut-off for online registration for a given week is Sunday at 2:00PM. After that, registrations must be confirmed in the main office.
