EYC – Episcopal Youth Community

EYC – Episcopal Youth Community

The Pohick EYC youth program consists of three youth groups for different ages: 5th & 6th grades, Junior High, and Senior High. They participate in weekly meetings focusing on building healthy Christian relationships and nurturing their spiritual life. Additionally, the youth participate in service projects, trips, retreats, and other various local and national community projects. The usual meeting time is on Sunday evenings in the Parish House. There are over 30 youth currently active in EYC and anyone in grades 5th-12th is welcome.

Activities and Events

During the school year, regular EYC meetings occur 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm on most Sundays. If you are interested in discovering the excitement of EYC, please contact the Youth Minister for the Sunday meeting Zoom link. Holidays and other events sometimes cause this general pattern to be different, so check the church calendar for updates.
