Youth of Redeemer

Serving our students from 6th - 12th grade VIEW CALENDAR

Episcopal Youth Community “EYC”

Our Mission

Redeemer’s youth ministry seeks to grow a community of young Christians and for that community to be an example in the world of how to treat others.

In an increasingly secular world, a young person may be tempted to view being a Christian as just a part of their heritage.

Youth ministry encourages our kids to see our shared faith as the foundation for our behavior, the instructions on how to love God and each other.

Through shared meals, simple lessons, and fun games we reaffirm that being a Christian in today’s world matters, perhaps now more than ever. Our faith is core to our identity and is strengthened by bonds of joy and friendship.
