EYC is an opportunity for middle school students to come together in their spiritual home and engage in Bible study, games, outreach, and community! EYC meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8 pm in the Church circle. They will meet in All Saints' Hall and the Youth Room if the weather is bad.

These Are Our Bodies - 6th Grade Edition
We have cancelled the originally scheduled October offering of this special workshop. If you have questions about the program, please contact either Maggie Baker or Sarah Ford for details about thecombined program with our fifth graders (date to be determined for 2022 winter/spring).
We are so excited about our upcoming Confirmation process! We look forward to beginning in January!
Confirmation will now be a three semester process, beginning in the spring of 8th grade. In the spring, students will meet in small groups twice a month. During the first semester, our goal is to create the relationships we find most successful in having deep, meaningful conversations about faith. Small groups will come together to share and learn about themselves, each other, and how to be supportive to one another, as well as establish a foundation of where they are in their faith journey. This will allow the group to move forward into more in-depth faith conversations in the fall.
Take time to talk with your student about what Confirmation is. Talk about it being the time where students start taking ownership of their faith journey, which you and their godparents and/or grandparents started them on at their baptism. Talk about how this process is about them preparing to make the decision to continue their faith journey in the Episcopal Church. Talk about the commitment it is to engage in this process. Confirmation is when they stand up and say that this is their faith journey, and they want to continue it. We support a student's decision, and we are happy to talk about what it might mean to be ready and what it might look like to wait.
After prayerfully considering what works best for your student and your family, we invite you to register for Confirmation. We are so excited to be on this journey with you. If you have any questions or need to chat, we are here to walk and talk with you and/or your student! Please feel free to reach out.

One rite of passage for Christ Church middle school students is helping our youngest parishioners grow in their faith at Vacation Bible School! Unfortunately, we are unable to utilize Teen Helpers as volunteers this year, but look forward to welcoming our teens back as volunteers in the future!
