We aren't the future of the church. We are the church right now.
This year the All Ontario Youth Convention is a two day event!
May 27 (9-9pm) & May 28 (10-6pm)
This year, we invite you to take an honest look at the struggles of the past years, and choose to fix your eyes on Christ for whatever lies ahead, knowing that you’re never alone. We’re going to do this in large group worship times, through teaching and learning together, and with small group discussion over meals.
We’re also going to have a lot of fun. The “flipping-into-the-ball-pit-rocking-a-bedazzled-t-shirt-with-my-new-best-friends” kind of fun.

Summer Mission Trip 2023
JULY 9-15, 2023
Our Summer Mission Trip is in the planning phase for this upcoming summer to Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Book the dates off for this life changing summer youth mission trip.
This trip is open to high school age youth including those starting Gr 9 in September 2023, and counts towards your Community Service hours! You MUST have a valid passport, and there is still a significant backlog in getting your passport; so if you would like to go on this amazing trip and you do not have a passport, you will want to start that process NOW.
If you know for sure that you are going on the Mission Trip (and you already have a passport), please complete the online registration form: https://argentasoftware.com/interfaces/gmt/frmParticipantForm.aspx?EnrollmentGroup=26765
If you have any questions, please contact Amy VanderWal.
