Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

EYC is for all young people in grades 6 to 12. We gather for food, fellowship, service, and lessons on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings, and participate in Diocesan Youth Events.  Friends are always welcome.  

Youth meet on Sunday evenings from 5pm - 7pm during the normal school year. We have social time, game nights, hikes, service projects nights that include wrapping the Angel Tree gifts, making fleece blankets, painting inside the church, building and setting up of a Little Shared library, and Diocesan youth events.  In addition, St. John's youth carry out parish fund-raisers such as youth breakfasts to help sponsor their participation in such programs.

We are always looking for volunteers to share a meal with us.  If you are interested in making a meal and sharing it with the youth please contact Amy Mellies at amymellies@stjohns-ames.org.
