Episcopal Youth Community (EYC) - Meeting time: Sunday evenings 7:00-8:00 PM
EYC is a group for students in grades 6 through 12. It combines fellowship, outreach, fun, and experience to help youth find a significance and relevance in their Christian vocation.
EYC activities include team-building activities, Christmas caroling for nursing homes and shut-ins, sponsoring a Halloween Party and Easter Egg Hunt for younger children, spiritual and creative workshops, and fun activities such as laser tag, bowling, and ice skating. Another key activity of EYC is participation in Diocesan events such as October Weekend, Blackstone, and Happening. We also stay connected to our college alumni through Valentine Care Packages.
Parents and other members of the congregation are called on to provide snacks for meetings and rides to activities or out-of-town events.
Emmanuel is blessed to have a large, active group of teens who receive a huge amount of support from the congregation.
Formation Time - We're tried something new starting in the fall of 2016. From September 18 through mid-June Sunday Classes were a joint program - all ages. We gathered in the parish hall and began around 9:30 AM. Folks came a little early and grabbed a cup of coffee and fellowshipped before the program started. Our hope is that everyone will get to know each other, young & old, much better.
