Episcopal Youth Community
Director of Youth and Family Ministry: Rachel McDaniel
Our youth community is open to all young people in grades 6-12. In addition to our Christian Education class on Sunday morning, we offer EYC on Sunday afternoons from 4:00-5:30 PM. EYC is split into 2 groups: Middle School EYC for 6th-8th graders and High School EYC for 9th-12th graders. Each EYC alternates Sunday afternoons. The schedule for Fall 2013 is listed below.
On Sunday afternoons, the youth and adult volunteers come together for an activity at 4:00 PM. We conclude with prayer and are finished by 5:30 PM. These times together are scheduled to build community among God’s children.
