Youth Ministry

Our youth programming takes an intentional four-fold focus:  Worship, Service/Mission, Fellowship, Study.  In order to most effectively minister with and to the youth in our church family, we believe in striving for a

balance of these four aspects of faith development.

Jr. High Group
The Junior Youth Group is for youth in Grade 6-8.  The group gathers together approximately twice each month. (There are also other opportunities for this age group to engage in throughout each month.   There is a Jr. High Retreat in Muskoka, which takes place in June of each year.  Check the weekly announcements for meeting dates and activities.

Sr. High Group
The Sr. Youth Group is for youth Grade 9-12.  We meet regularly.   We also participate in an annual retreat in Muskoka each fall.  Sr. High Youth are encouraged to participate in worship & family communion on a regular basis.  We also have the opportunity to participate in outreach and mission throughout the year. Check the weekly announcements for meeting dates and activities.

House Church

Young Adults who have graduated highschool meet weekly @ the manse for worship and food.  We gather most Wednesdays @ 7pm.

Confirmation Classes
Confirmation classes are held every 2 years (next series begins September 2014).  Confirmation is a year long process designed to help guide youth who are thinking of becoming members of the church. Youth are paired with mentors as they explore what the Christian faith means to them.

University Students
Many of our students attend university a distance away from us.  The congregation sends letters and care packages throughout the year in order to stay in touch and express our care.  Please make sure we have your son/daughter’s current mailing address.


    Portland Place
    - Several times each year we celebrate and share with the people of Portland Place. Through karaoke, bbq's, Christmas parties, flower garden planting and more, we share in the lives of our inner-city brothers and sisters.

    Evangel Hall
    - Once or twice each year we have the opportunity to prepare and serve dinner at Evangel Hall, providing dinner for 80-100 people. It is a wonderful time of blessing for all involved.

    Prayer Shawls
    - Our Prayer Shawl ministry team provides prayer shawls for those who are ill, new babies, university students, confirmation participants, and more. It is a wonderful blessing for both those who create and those who receive these meaningful shawls.

    Senior's Lunch
    - Each month we provide lunch and a speaker for seniors who live in our community. We invite speakers to share insights on relevant health issues, particularly for seniors.

    We share in many outreach ministries during the Advent and Christmas Season including:
    - Mitten Tree: each year we collect mittens, hats, and scarves for people living in Toronto
    - Christmas Angels: we help new refugee families celebrate their first Christmas in Canada with warm clothes, food, and some special gifts.
    - YSM (Yonge Street Mission) Shoe-boxes: families load up shoe-boxes filled toys for inner-city children living in Toronto.
