EBC Youth Group is for both Middle School and High School students (6th - 12th grade). It is a place for students to experience a safe and age-appropriate environment while learning about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. Youth Group is also a place where we will worship in music and use the Clothesline to prompt us in our prayers for one another. This year we want to use Youth Group to give students opportunities to put their faith into action.

Opportunities to Grow & Serve

This is a great ministry of letter writing, phone calls, visits, and prayer. Your whole family is welcome to come. (June 4, July 2, Aug 6, and Sept 3)

  • Leader Lunch – This is for those who are interested in learning more about student ministry and growing in your ability to minister to students. Leader training provides an opportunity for prayer and accountability as we endeavor to effectively disciple every student. Students who are juniors or seniors, please see Pastor Van if you are interested in being a student leader. Leader Lunch at Jared and Hillary’s home (356 N. King St.) from noon to 2 PM on June 26 and July 24.
