EYC Discord:
EYC youth grades 6-12th are encouraged to join our Discord group chat! Never heard of Discord? Unsure of how it works? Email or text Jenny at (540) 604-3931 for help getting logged on. Discord is a free app for your phone or computer, like GroupMe. Youth and youth advisors will use Discord for online socializing as well as prayer requests and communicating announcements. If you don’t want your child using Discord, no problem! Parent communication will continue through The ePistle, email, and Facebook at this time. Our discord is private and open only to HT EYC members. 

Mission Statement
“To know Christ and to make him known, through an inward
journey of faith and an outward journey of service,
giving thanks to God in all things.”

The goal of the youth program is to incorporate teens in to a sacred community of radical acceptance, allowing them the space to figure out who they are, what gifts they have to offer, and how they can offer those gifts. They are able to make a deeper connection to the presence of God so that they may become co-creators with God in the world.

For Youth in 6th through 12th Grade
Tweens EYC: 6th grade
Junior High EYC: 7th and 8th grades
Senior High EYC: 9th through 12th grades
