Junior & Senior Youth Ministry

Get ready for another action-packed year as our youth ministries navigate the 2017 - 2018 season!

It is our goal to provide a safe and fun place where students can build solid relationships with their peers and with caring, mentoring adults as well as explore the BIG questions in life.

  Youth ministry takes place on Thursday evenings from 7:00pm until 9:00pm.  New students are always welcome!  The evening includes a variety of exciting activities like games, contests, a tuck shop, sharing about the week, and group discussions.

Students compete to earn awesome team celebration events at different times throughout the year.  Students can earn points for bringing new friends, memorizing Bible verses, participating in team games and competitions, and even for just showing up.

  We are fortunate to have an incredible team of volunteers who help to make each student's experience a positive one.  Our volunteer team would enjoy the opportunity to meet you in person.  Please feel free to introduce yourself one night when you're picking up your son or daughter.

  If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us by phone:
(519) 621-4391, or by email at

  We're looking forward to a fantastic year together!



Childrens Ministry

Child and youth ministries are aimed at sharing the love of Christ as we serve the next generation.  Ministries to children and youth are presented in a structured, caring environment under trained and accountable volunteers.  Avenue Road Youth Ministries is governed by the "plan to protect" guidelines for both child and volunteer safety.

Nursery and Toddlers Ministry

Children's Programming:  Ages 0-4 years at Avenue Road

At Avenue Road, it is our desire to assist you as parents, by providing a loving and safe place where your children can be cared for during the worship service.  Our nursery (Room 1: downstairs) is available for children from 0-24 months.  Our toddler area (Room 2: downstairs) is available for children aged 2-4.  Both rooms are open during the morning worship service from 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.  Each room is staffed with caring volunteers who are ready to care for your child.


Junior Church Ministry

Children's Programming:  Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5

A high energy worship experience during our regular Sunday service, for kids in JK to Grade 5.  A new, exciting video-based format includes opportunities for children to worship through singing, small group interaction, Bible learning and memorization.  This program runs during the regular morning worship service:  11:15 a.m. to 12:15 a.m (September to June).


Kid's Club:  Ministry - JK to Grade 5

Here at Avenue Road!

Kid's Club is for boys and girls in JK to grade 5.  The Kid's Club provides an opportunity for kids to learn about God's love for them through a variety of activities including:  music, crafts, games and drama, and offers a time for them to interact with caring adults and other children with similar interests. 


Children's Choir

Children's Programming:  Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6

The Children's Choir is open to boys and girls from JK to Grade 6.  The Choir provides an opportunity for children to learn how to show their love for God through music,  and offers a time for them to interact with other children with similar interests.  This is a start to what we hope will be a future in worshipping God through the gift of music.

The Children's Choir meets Sunday mornings directly following the regular worship service.  Talk to Patti Tripp for further details.

"The Bible makes abundantly clear, again and again ... that God uses the most messed-up, flawed, not-good-enough
people to do His will ... , because messed-up, flawed, not-good-enough people are all He has to choose from."
