Episcopal Youth Community “EYC”
We aren’t just interested in creating a “youth group.” Rather, we want our youth to be involved in an authentic, life-giving, and Christ-centered community. That’s at the heart of the Episcopal Youth Community or “EYC.” This means that we of course take the time to have fun together, but it also means that we are seeking to do life together, in good times and in our struggles. Our core values in the youth ministry include worship, fellowship, and mission.
Yours in Christ,
