Mission Statement

The goal of the Youth Ministry is to nurture the youth of EPC by providing a diverse program that includes education, service, recreation and fun.  

 

Youth Ministry this Fall

Faith in an Anxious World 

Sundays from 5:30-7:30pm

All rising 6th-12th graders are invited to join us for Sunday evening youth group. We gather at 5:30pm in the Youth Room for dinner and then a time of study, prayer, mission, fellowship and friends. This fall, we will share in a study Faith in an Anxious World. Together, we will reflect on New Testament stories watch Jesus enter anxious situations with his disciples and explore:

  • Life in a Anxious World
  • Life in a Relational World
  • Life in a Hurting World
  • Life in a Hopeful World
We will share in times of mission as we look for ways to share the love of Christ through Greenville and beyond and we will have plenty time for play and fellowship.
