The Pohick EYC consists of three youth groups for different ages: 5th & 6th Grades, Junior High, and Senior High. During the school year, regular EYC meetings for Senior and Junior High occur from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM on most Sundays. The 5th and 6th grade meet at the same time, but only on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. All the EYC groups meet from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM the first Sunday of most months for Dinner Night. Holidays and other events sometimes cause this general pattern to be different, so check the calendar tab, above, for the upcoming months' calendars!
There are over 40 youth currently active in EYC, and any youth grades 5th-12th is welcome. Pohick's Youth Minister develops the youth programming, recruits volunteers and provides answers to any questions you may have. His name is Rusty Booth, and he can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 703-339-6572, ext. 106.
Although the 2018 application will not be posted until Jan 2018, High School seniors can review here a 2017 example of the Robert and Bernice Kilmarx & Anne Powell Scholarship form, which each June awards a $2000 grant for post-secondary education to up to three young people who are active in Pohick's youth programs. The deadline for next year's application will be April 30, 2018.
On July 7 - 14, 2018, we'll be heading to Wallingford, Connecticut for our summer mission trip. Read about a past mission trip at Patch.com!
