Awana » AWANA Clubs

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.  

The key Bible verse is 2 Timothy 2:15; which says "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." 

The goals of AWANA are: 

1. To reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ. 
2. To train them to serve Him.

Awana has three key components.  The games time for kids to burn off energy and have lots of fun.  The handbook time gives the kids opportunity to recite the verses they have memorized and to continue working on new material with the help of their leaders.  The third component is the council time.  During this time we all assemble in the sanctuary for a time of worship, a time of instruction and to acknowledge handbook work completed.

AWANA blends Bible teaching, Scripture memorization and fun.  The program we run here at Aylmer Evangelical Missionary Church is for children SK thru to Gr. 6.  Please contact us if you are interested in joining us Monday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 pm.

Small Groups » Christ Care (small groups)

At AEMC our desire is for people to feel connected and supported. One of the ways this can happen is by being part of a small group. Small groups or life groups are groups of 6-12 people who meet regularly in houses or public places to support one another in their walks with God. Together they build one another up and serve people outside their group. We have an ongoing women's groups and mixed groups. If you would like to know more about our small groups or would like to get connected contact Pastor Brian at aylmeremc@amtelecom.net

» Women's Ministry

We usually run a 6 - 10 week Women's Bible study each Fall, Winter and Spring. These studies are generally led by Beth Morris at her home, Wednesdays in the morning at 9:15 and then again at 7:00 p.m. You choose which time fits your schedule. They are often Beth Moore studies, which include a teaching DVD and study book. Come and enjoy studying the Scriptures in-depth, sharing, praying together, and having lively discussion to encourage personal application of new insights learned.

» Sunday School - 9:30 to 10:30 am

Our teachers enjoy leading Bible-based and age-appropriate lessons to our child, youth, and adult classes. We believe, as I Timothy 3:16 says, that "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching"  We want to support our students in their journey with God by providing a caring environment and the encouragement to live in a spiritually fruitful manner.

Sunday school classes include the following age groups:  Pre-school, Grades 1-3, Grades 4-6, Grades 7 &8, High School, and Adult.  An Open Session Sunday school is usually held the last Sunday of the month, and includes praise and worship songs and fun Bible quizzes.

» Youth Ministries

The youth group at AEMC is actually a merge of two churches. We also take in the youth from our sister church in St. Thomas. We meet together every Friday from September to June. A regular night consists of band practice at 6:00pm, games at 7:30, bible study and snack at 8:30. We also have guest speakers, movie nights, and special events like 30 Hour Famine, bowling nights and Pitch and Praise. www.pitchandpraise.com

Our youth ranging from ages 12-18 is a group that includes everyone no matter their belief, ethnicity, or status. We support one another in any way we can. Our goal as leaders is to help raise the next generation of Christ followers.


"I really like youth because everyone is so outgoing and positive! Nobody judged me and I felt so welcome and accepted. It was really the highlight of my week and I could always look forward to it." - Michelle Moore

"I like youth group because, nobody judges you and they're always inclusive. The leaders (Steve and Julianna) are real. I mean real because they're down to earth and they've been in our shoes and know how we function/think. The leaders act like the kids but are also serious when it comes down to serious things like discussions." - David Gould

"I like youth because I get to see people and be social. XD I also like it cause nobody judges and everybody gets along together and we have fun!" - Heather Willsey

"Youth is fun. People here are always fun, excited and smiling. Playing different games each week is great and it's always loud. People always make it great and it's never a dull moment at youth. Study time is great and you learn new things every week. There's always something new every week. It's awesome." - Kevin Wall
