Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

EYC Mount Dora is the youth group for St. Edward's Episcopal Church serving middle school and high school youth. We meet every Sunday from noon to 2pm, with lunch provided.

Building Relationships

Our weekly meetings start with (free) lunch and time to just hang out and talk, and finish with free-time to continue building relationship. Additionally, we do a variety of fun, recreational activities outside of our weekly meetings.

Bible Study

The core of our weekly meetings is our Bible study discussions. We learn how to read and study the Scriptures, and practice good study and application of the Word through group conversation. Our goal is to develop sound interpretation techniques and grow in our love for the Word of God.

Community Service

Students are encouraged to explore ways to live out their faith through a variety of ministry opportunities and community service projects. Out goal is to serve locally, and through service trips like Soul in the City (organized with other youth groups in the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida).

Wow... just had an incredible #biblestudy conversation with the youth group today on Psalm 40 (from the lectionary readings for today).

We talked about brokenness, seeing God's work in our lives, and telling the story (which brings other people towards redemption).

The best part is when after the core discussion about the text, I always ask them, "so what?" And we talk about how they take the reading and actually apply it to their lives. And we talked about dealing with our own brokenness, and about helping others through theirs. It was a great, rich conversation...

I love our youth!

Been working on turning the youth and children ministry pages on the church website into something that would be both...

1 - A great representation of what we're doing for people looking for a church with an active family ministry, and...

2 - A great resource for families IN our church so they can go to it regularly for information and updates about what we're doing with the kids.

We're working in not only information with our vision for what we do, but also things like events calendar, Instagram feed (for us-specific hashtags), and blog posts related to your youth/children ministry. And we're still look to expand it and bring in even more value!

Check it out at stedwardsepiscopal.com then go to Ministries > Youth (and Children).

In today's world, building a strong online presence is crucial to the success of any ministry.

Studying Psalm 84 with the youth today. It's so fun digging into the Word with this group. Such great insight! I love how they are picking up on concepts in studying the Bible.

Following my recent service trip with the stedwardsepiscopal youth this Summer, I had the opportunity to write about it for the cfdiocese publication...

"Summer mission trips can be transformative experiences, especially for youth. And when these trips are done well, they can also have a great impact on local communities. Nonprofits and other organizations thrive on volunteer help to accomplish their mission. So when a group of youth partnered with a local church converges on a single community, the impact can send ripples across a city, bringing hope and encouragement to those already doing great work there."
