Jr. High2024-04-26T14:50:36-04:00

Tuesdays | 6:45-8:15 PM

All students currently in Grades 6-8 are welcome to attend Jr. High. All students currently in Grades 9-12 are welcome in Sr. High. We encourage our students to bring their friends! 

WHEN WE MEET

Sundays

On Sundays, Jr. High students meet during the 11am service (September through May) for their own worship service in the Youth Room (near the Chapel). You can expect a Bible-based curriculum and age-specific teaching by Pastor Dave and our youth interns. Jr. High students are encouraged to join the main worship service on the 1st Sunday of each month.

Tuesday Nights

Jr. High students (Grades 6-8) will be meeting weekly on Tuesday evenings (beginning mid-September until the end of May) from 6:45-8:15 pm at Emmanuel Barrie. During the night, Jr. High students will enjoy hang-out time, games, a weekly Bible lesson and small group time. To get weekly updates, register for Jr. High HERE.

Summer Camp

Each summer we run an incredible, exciting, and fun 4-day camp tailored to Jr. High students. “Extreme Camp” exists to challenge Jr. High students to push themselves physically, as well as grow their faith to a new level. Extreme Camp takes place during the first week of August. Watch for registration details in early spring!

Why do you ask students to register for youth?2023-08-31T14:36:42-04:00

We ask all regular attenders to fill out a registration form once each ministry year. This allows us to collect any necessary medical and contact information so we can keep you in the loop of regular events and announcements and in the event of an emergency.

What does a typical Jr. High night look like?2022-09-08T13:24:35-04:00

Students arrive and sign-in at the welcome desk. They are then free to hang-out for a bit while they wait for their program to begin. They are free to enjoy the open gym, gaga ball, foosball, air hockey and the café during this time. The program begins with a large group game. We then move into a time of worship and teaching, followed by small group time. Small groups are separated by grade and gender and led by volunteer leaders. Students are dismissed following their small group time

If I have a student in both Jr. High and Sr. High, can I drop my kids off at the same time?2022-09-08T13:19:59-04:00

Yes! The café will be open from 6:15-7:30 pm and will have meals, snacks and drinks available for purchase. Students are encouraged to hang out as they wait for their program to begin. There will be café supervision.

Will Jr. High and Sr. High Students ever mix?2022-09-01T14:12:11-04:00

Both groups will be in the building at the same time, but will be using different spaces. Most special events and all retreats will have the groups separated.

Does it cost any money to attend youth?2022-09-01T14:12:31-04:00

Our weekly meetings are free. However, students may purchase snacks and drinks at the café. Prices range from .10¢ to $5. There are also some special events and retreats that will cost money to attend. Details on each event will be announced well in advance so you have time to plan and financial assistance will be available to those who need it.

Will there be Jr. High retreats this year?2023-08-31T14:38:20-04:00

Yes! Jr. High attends the Bedlam retreat at Muskoka Woods in November. Watch your emails and the events page for details.

Who are the youth leaders?2022-09-01T14:13:39-04:00

Our youth leaders are volunteers who have an interest in discipling students toward a deeper relationship with God. Each volunteer has completed their Safe Church vulnerable sector screening, which includes a police check, interview and reference check.
