EYC (Episcopal Youth Community)
EYC is divided into two groups: Middle School (grades 6-8), and High School (grades 9-12). The EYC gathers on the second and fourth Sundays from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Middle & High School meet seperately. Any young person in grades 6-12 is encouraged to be a part of this vibrant and energetic group.
The EYCs take various trips throughout the year including a ski trip during the winter, a mission trip in the summer, as well as other retreats.
EYC meets for special events during June, July and August.
SCHEDULE GOES HERE ***********************************
Classes are offered in the Youth & Music Building for 6th-8th graders and 9th-12th graders. Classes are Biblical and topical, helping young people connect Scripture to the day’s events and to their lives.
Serving at Worship
The Acolyte Guild at Christ Church has a long rich history of service and of learning. Most importantly, our acolytes play a vital role in helping ensure that our worship services run smoothly.
By playing an active role in worship services, our youth learn how we celebrate our faith throughout the liturgical year. By serving at baptisms, confirmation, weddings and funerals, they learn how we care for the faithful through our Christian sacraments. In the process, they learn both responsibility and leadership skills that help prepare them for the roles they will play as leaders of the church in adulthood. All school age young people are encouraged to join the Acolyte Guild.
Lectors & Eucharistic Ministers
Young people are invited to be in the regular rotation of lectors and Eucharistic Ministers (16 & up) for any of our worship services. We ask all lectors to go through a brief training and orientation.
Young people, age 12 and older, who have an interest in learning about operating the church’s sound board and other sound systems, run the soundboard during the Sunday and special services are invited to be a Sound Tech. They are sceduled for Sunday services and volunteer for special services. If you are interested in serving in this capacity, contact Jackie McDaniel.
