As developing adult Christians, youth are an integral part of the congregation. Through a variety of experiences, we are committed to giving our young people a solid Christian foundation and a nurturing community in which they can grow.

Christian Formation Program
Classes are offered during the academic year – September through Pentecost – for everyone from age 4 through adult. Classes are from 9:15-10:15. Prior to attending the class, each student should register with the Director of Family Formation. All class assignments are based on the age or current grade placement in school.
This group meets in The Barton House located at the end of the driveway just beyond the Day School building. Through seasonally curated content, youth will learn the core values of their faith while learning to navigate their Bibles and ask the hard questions about life application. Through exploration of the Bible and their faith in a discussion format, Jesus’ teachings will begin to give voice to what they believe.
With Jesus as their role model, the high school youth, seen as emerging adults, meet in The Barton House to discuss the fundamentals of their faith as Episcopalians. Using Biblical passages, current events, the Book of Common Prayer and other resources, they navigate faithful living with their shared insights and hard questions. This group is scholarly, enlightening, entertaining and always great fun!
EYC (Episcopal Youth Community)
Our youth program is focused on building community and serving others. This includes, but is not limited to, cooking & serving at the homeless shelter, helping out at the Chapel Pantry and meal packing for Stop Hunger Now. Community is important and we gather as a group several times a year with a focus on fun, fellowship and being the hands and feet of Christ in the world.
