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 trying something new starting this fall. From September 18 through mid-June Sunday Classes will happen as a joint program - all ages. We will gather in the parish hall and begin around 9:30 AM. Come a little early and grab a cup of coffee and fellowship before the program starts. A complete list of topics will be available starting September 11 and posted here. Our hope is that everyone will get to know each other, young & old, much better. By doing this together, we can all strengthen our love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
