The Awana program is held on Tuesday nights from 6:20-8:00 during the school year. Our goal is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and to train them to serve Him. Each Awana night consists of singing, handbook time, a Bible lessons and game time for three age groups:

Cubbies: Preschool
Lots of fun and an introduction to God’s Word for preschoolers, Cubbies encourages these little ones to begin to make scripture a part of their lives through parent-child activities.

Sparks: Grade K to 2
A time of friendship building and the gospel message, Sparks teaches children about Jesus through games and introduces small peer-group interaction.

T&T – Grade 3 to 6
T&T (standing for “Truth and Training”) leads kids into a deeper relationship with God and teaches them to reach out to others through mission projects. We support a club in Ukraine through the Awana Adopt-a-Club program. On the first Tuesday of each month, the children are encouraged to bring a missionary offering to help support this project.

Annual Highlights:

  • Grand Prix car races and Regatta boat races
  • Winterfest takes place in January at the Harrison Park Community Centre. Tobogganing, ice skating, snow football and the warmth of the fireplace are enjoyed along with great fellowship and lunch.
  • May Awards Night where the boys and girls are rewarded for all their hard work over the year.

We are blessed with the faithful help of our leaders. Please continue to pray for this important program and if you would like to help as a leader, please contact Tim Chambers.

Youth Group
Youth group runs on Wednesday nights throughout the school year from  7:00 – 9:00 pm for teens in Grade 7-12 . The mission of South End’s youth group is to glorify God by winning people to Jesus Christ and equipping them to be more faithful disciples. Youth night is fun and challenging with games, worship, a Bible lesson and small groups. We hope you will come and check us out.

We also offer after-school discipleship with Pastor Chad on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, monthly service nights where we go out and serve together in the community, and monthly Friday night fun nights.

Sunday School for All Ages
Sunday School runs on Sunday mornings from 10:00 – 10:45 am during the school year. We have a number of age-appropriate classes with teachers who desire to teach with excellence. Highlights of the year include contests, a Christmas program, and an Easter program. There is something for everyone who seeks to study God’s Word and know Him better.
