Epiphany Youth in Community (EYC)
Youth, we're doing great things together this year. We're merging our middle school and high school groups for a full docket of learning and living in community.
Over the course of the coming year, Epiphany will offer three short (two-month) courses for 6th-12th graders: "Dismantling Racism," "Compassion: World Poverty," and "Wild Faith: Creation Care." In these classes we'll learn more about God, God's Kingdom, and the beloved people of this world, and also what we can do to love and serve both God and our neighbors.
We'll also have weekly Check-In Time, a short zoom on Wednesday evenings from 8:00-8:20pm. Youth leaders will be there to chat, and we'll end each gathering with a very brief meditation and blessing. We will have our first gathering on Wednesday, 7 October.
Periodically we'll host Zoom-based social time, where we play games and just have fun. Look for our "Virtual Escape Room" coming this fall.
Finally, we understand that zoom-fatigue is real and youth need ways to connect with their families and faith off-screen. We are busy putting together Faith-at-Home Youth Edition boxes full of things to support youths' spiritual journeys and faith. Be sure to register so you get your box.
We invite all youth in grades six through twelve to take part in these many new offerings. Contact Bryn Hollenbeck with any questions.
