This year, EYC will focus on the Bible, implementing a 4 year rotational Bible Study developing and discussing 15 stories per year. Our goal is to encourage and shape our youth to be confident readers of the Bible and to develop a lifetime passion for following Jesus. EYC meets regularly on Sunday afternoons from 3:30 –5:30 p.m. downstairs in the large EYC classroom, together for large group activities and games, and then dividing into smaller Prayer Families to encourage honest, authentic discussions and to help the youth explore, question and deepen their relationship with Christ.
In addition to Sunday EYC meetings, the Sr. High EYC meets on Wednesday evenings during the program year from 6 – 7:30 p.m. We are also active with the other youth in our Diocese all over Alabama. For a list of the diocesan events, click on the button below.
Please contact Shelley Lackey, the Director of Youth Ministries, if you have any questions or if you would like to be added to our weekly email list.

EYC Upcoming Events!
August 18 - 19: EYC Kick-off Retreat at Camp Chandler! We'll depart from Holy Trinity at 9am on Saturday, August 18 and we'll arrive back at Holy Trinity sometime Sunday afternoon after lunch, time to be decided later.
Where will we stay?
We have reserved the Chandler Lodge, maximum occupancy of 60, dividing up boys on one side and girls on the other (with probably me in the middle!). A large gathering room and kitchenette divides the two bunk rooms. Chaperones and youth ministry staff will be housed with the youth.
What will we eat?
Four delicious meals will be provided for us while we are at Camp Chandler: Saturday lunch & supper, Sunday breakfast & lunch. Snacks are always welcome!
What will we do?
The retreat will be a time for us to build relationships, establish trust, and connect with one other. We'll participate in water activities, a team-building ropes course, war canoes, worship, songs, outdoor campfire fun, food and fellowship!
What does it cost?
The cost for the retreat is $25 per person. If you know for sure that your child will participate, please go ahead and send in a check made payable to Holy Trinity for the full amount with "EYC retreat" written in the memo line. If you are undecided about your youth participating, no worries! You have until AUGUST 9 to decide. Either way, please RSVP now and let me know so we can plan accordingly. For scholarship inquiries, contact me at the cell number or email listed below.
A week or two before the retreat, I will send out a suggested packing list along with retreat schedule details. We are SUPER excited about this team building opportunity, and we hope every single youth participates. This program year is going to be amazing, and we can't wait to get started!
Please RSVP HERE by August 3.
