COVID-19

We we take the health and safety of our students, families and leaders very serious, especially in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.  

For an outline of the safety measures that are in place for all of our Summer Youth Activities, scroll to the bottom of this page.



WELCOME.

If you're a student in middle school (grades 6-8) or high school (grades 9-12), or if you have a middle or high school student and want to learn more about our youth program, you've come to the right place.


Our vision for students is that they would discover the truth of Jesus and find true belonging through a relationship with Him and a community of people who love Him and love people. 


Jesus said, "I have come that they might have LIFE - and have it to the full." (John 10:10b).  We believe that the life Jesus offers to those who choose to follow Him is one of purpose, love, hope, joy, and is the ultimate, ETERNAL ADVENTURE


At FCC Youth we do loud, we do fun, and we do awesome because life with Jesus is all that and more! 


If we haven't met already, I can't wait to meet you!

SUMMER 2020

YOUTH TRIPS

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all Summer Trips have been cancelled.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION


COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS FOR SUMMER ACTIVITIES


SAFE & SOCIALLY DISTANT


1. All Summer Youth Activities will be held outdoors and will not include food, drinks, or any other item multiple students will need to touch (aside from the bathroom). 

The Youth House will only be open for the use of the bathroom, one person at a time. Hand soap and sanitizer are provided in the Youth House. Th Youth House and bathrooms will be cleaned/disinfected before and after each youth event.


2. Smaller Groups & Shorter Activities
To help keep our group size small and manageable, we will keep middle and high school groups separate for all youth activities during the summer. (Our typical group size will be no more than 8-12 people, including leaders.)

Also, group events will run 1 - 1.5 hours max to help keep our focus on planned activities and social distance.

3. Hand Sanitizer & Soap all around!
We have hand sanitizer and hand soap readily available both in the Youth House as well as outside with us during activities, and will remind and encourage students to use it throughout our time together.

4. Spacing/Social Distance.
To help keep the recommended 6ft distance between each other, during our activities we will gather in a large, spread out circle or area with good distance (at least two arms lengths) between each student/leader to ensure distance throughout our activities.

5. Face masks are optional.
The CDC recommends the use of face masks when social distancing is not possible, and/or especially when you're indoors with others who are not from your household. CDC Face Mask Guidance

By keeping our group activities smaller, shorter, and focused, as well as outdoors, we believe we can maintain good social distance where face masks will not be as necessary. That said, if you would prefer your student wear a face mask for any reason we certainly support and encourage that.

6. Staying Local.
All youth activities will be local so that parents can easily provide transportation to and from youth events. We will do a better job of maintaining safety and social distance by ensuring students ride in their own family vehicles.

7. Stay home if...
Parents play a huge role in the safety of our youth. You know your students better than we possibly could, which means we will rely on your judgement for whether or not your student should attend an activity. 

If your student is not feeling well, or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of the activity, please keep them home. 

If your student is in a high risk category for Covid-19 please take whatever necessary precautions you need to keep them safe, such as face masks, personal hand sanitizer, gloves, staying home, etc.


SUMMER ACTIVITIES

1. Summer Trivia Challenge & Devo (separate middle and high school nights)
Every week we have a middle school night and a high school night for a Summer Trivia Challenge where we use a designated area of the parking lot down by the Youth House to help keep students socially distant. After the Trivia Challenge we do a short summer devotional to encourage students spiritually.

2. Summer Bible Study
Again, with separate MS and HS groups, we'll offer a bi-weekly Youth Summer Bible Study where we meet together in a large, spacious circle outside the Youth House for discussion and prayer. In the event of rain, we meet online through Zoom instead.

3. Hike or Disk Golf.
A few times throughout the summer we'd love to meet up at a local state park for either a hike or a round of disk golf. This provides us with a fun activity off site from the Youth House, while maintaining our rule of being outdoors and keeping social distance. (Dates to be determined.)"

BATHING SUIT POLICY

FCC Youth Guiding Principle: "Modesty to the degree you are able."


Our intention through the Youth Program is to be appropriate and respectful in all that we do so to honor God and others with our lives. We do not have a hard line on what type of bathing suits students can wear (ie. two piece vs. one piece), but instead ask that parents and students discuss what they feel is appropriate for the youth event they are attending and keep our Guiding Principle in mind.


If an issue of appropriate covering does come up with a student, a youth leader will privately and respectfully talk to that student and work to resolve the issue. 


If you have questions or concerns about our bathing suit policy please contact Val Rogers: vrogers@faithcov.net
