Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)
St. John has a very active EYC for 6th through 12th graders. Our Sunday School class is informal, with pillows for floor-sitting in a room we painted ourselves with flowers, stars, scriptures, and graffiti. We've watched videos such as The Nativity and Jesus Christ Superstar, begun a timeline of Christian history, and even used SpongeBob to illustrate the Seven Deadly Sins.
In addition to Sunday School, we meet monthly for activities that include outreach, just-for-fun, and everything in between. Annual events include a picnic and swim in Pisgah Forest, participating in Relay for Life to benefit cancer research, and Christmas shopping for local needy children. We also join in larger parish events, such as helping the Men's Club cook and serve breakfast and assisting the Outreach Committee with their 2017 Empty Bowls meal. On occasion the middle schoolers and high schoolers separate, especially for overnight events, but more often we combine the groups.
All that’s missing is you! Please join us!
