Note about Five17 holidays:
At Five17, we follow the Peninsula School District for holidays or other days-off that will happen. We use a simple rule: If there’s no school for Peninsula schools on a given monday, there is no youth group. (This includes non-scheduled snow days and teacher in-service days, unless otherwise noted!) This allows us as a staff to have time for rest, recuperation, and prayer on how to better our ministry that God has blessed us with. 
 
TAQs (Typically Asked Questions):
 
Is Five17 just for students and teens of WayPoint Church?
No! While a good percentage of students that regularly attend Five17 have parents that attend WayPoint, a good deal of them do not, and either don’t attend church or attend a different church. All that is required to be a Fiver is to come and have fun!
 
Can teens who are not Christians come to Five17?
Absolutely! In fact, many teens who have attended over the years are/were not professing believers. However, while all are welcome, our heart is to see the lives of every single teen affected to make decisions for Christ. We preach from the Bible, and do not waiver on that. In that, we will always strive to cultivate a welcoming environment for all students, no matter what.
 
I want to help out at Five17… what should I do?

Can parents come to Five17?
Yes. Parents are always more than welcome to join us! We simply ask that you consider that Five17 is here for the students, and to avoid anything that might serve as a distraction. 
 
At Five17 we promise to always do our absolute best to make sure that all students are encouraged, included and safe. We always try to build a culture among our regular students to step up themselves and reach out to each other, and to newer students. We discourage cliques as far as is unhealthy, and attempt to build on a community of friends that contribute to the well-being of the church overall. After all, these students are not “Christians in training”; they ARE Christians, and can function in the body just as well as those who perhaps don’t fit the term “youth”.
