A gathering of people seeking to walk the way of Christ in the world, sharing our story alongside God's story and discovering intersections that surprise, challenge and comfort. The Way is an ancient practice in the Christian church, which was founded in people's homes as they gathered to break bread around a meal. The Way partners people and invites them into the way of Christ through a series of small group gatherings around a meal and several rites during worship, in which the gathered community prays for and gifts the Way participants. Please see our Activities and Events calendar.

WALKING IN FAITH together: Confirmation Rap
In addition to Sunday worship participation, a small group of young people (grades 7-12), facilitated by Pastor Jennifer, are meeting over Zoom every Monday evening at 5:00pm. Together, we explore the Biblical narrative with creative writing, sketching, and dialog as we discover our lives caught up in God's story of rescuing the whole creation! We value the inquiry process related to following Christ, asking questions relevant to the young people, fostering respect and mutual growth. Each young person will be paired with an adult mentor who will join us monthly for conversation and/or field trips to our interfaith neighbours, serving at the Surrey Urban Mission Society (SUMS) and A Rocha Community, an environmentally conscious international Christian farm. Contact Pastor Jennifer at email@example.com for more information and to sign up!

Sunday morning kids in worship
Kids of all age are welcome in worship each Sunday morning.

This journey involves baptism, participating in FISH (Faith Intergenerational SHaring), confirmation, getting acquainted with our interfaith neighbours, serving our neighbours and growing together in Christian community. Young people are integrated into the intergenerational faith community through participating in worship life at TLC, serving communion, ushering, playing in the worship band and reading scripture.
