LOGOS (mid-week)

logos-slide

The LOGOS program is designed to fully integrate youth (Gr 9-12), into the life of Christian commitment and community. It provides a structure that helps them “catch faith” in Jesus Christ through Bible teaching and forming significant relationships with their peers and Christian adults. It integrates both faith and practice. For more information email or phone the church office (519) 744-6574. For more information on the LOGOS curriculum, visit www.genonministry.org.
