Sunday School and Youth Group

At Fourth Avenue Baptist we believe the years of early childhood and onward are critical in faith development. During each period of transition, we choose to be intentional as we invest in each age group. 

Birth to three years old

Within weeks of birth we invite parents to bring their child to the altar for prayer. We pray for the health and progress of the child and dedicate the parents to God’s purposes in the life of their child. Each Sunday the parents are encouraged to bring the child and keep them in worship. We understand children can be fussy at times and welcome their presence.  There is also a ‘quiet’ room in the rear of the sanctuary where the parents may settle the child if they wish.

Elementary Years

These little ones are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a special word to the children called Lessons for the Heart. After their word they are invited to join a teacher for activities and further study. 

Youth Group

Fourth Avenue Baptist Church Youth gather weekly; each  Friday evening at 7pm. Fourth Avenue partners with youth from MacPhail Memorial Baptist Church.  During the year, we also partner with our OBA churches for up to three events; winter retreats, No Other Name (a Good Friday event), and the Great Glebe Garage Sale, in the Glebe. Fourth Avenue utilizes Right Now Media for Youth Group programming.
