EYC (Episcopal Youth in the Church)

We aspire to be a safe and nurturing environment for our youth by providing relative programs and activities that will allow them to develop a strong relationship with Christ.

 

EYC (Episcopal Youth in the Church) prepares our youth, grades 6-12, for adulthood by fostering strong, productive, Christian lives through skill-building, community service, and positive life attitudes.  Self, society, sexuality, and spirituality are the areas that are covered in the light of the Gospel, in order that the reality of young people’s lives can be strengthened, encouraged, healed, and empowered by the life and wisdom of Jesus Christ.
