We base our youth ministry on two guiding ideas:
1. The youth are the Kingdom of God now, not just the Kingdom of the future.
2. “Everybody gets to play.” In other words, the youth need to learn to face challenges and grow in their lives based on Christ, and we give them an opportunity to express that in different ways by serving the community (our church family, city, and beyond).
Our Youth Pastors are: Michael and Sydne Lawrence
Youth Group (Grades 7-12)
EVVC's Youth Group meets every Sunday evening from 6-8pm in the Youthcave, a back building at the Church. It is a great time to play games, worship and discuss something from the Bible while hanging out with friends, playing games, and learning what the Christian life is about. PLUS, there are many outings and outreaches throughout the year that our young people are invited to participate in.
Middle School (Grades 6-8) in the “Youthcave”
Middle Schoolers meet in the Youthcave on Saturday nights after worship to hang out. just like Youth Group, there's always a relevant teaching and games for the Middle Schoolers.
This is Younglife for Middle School. Every other week Middle Schoolers will come to EVVC and attend the worship portion of our service. They can then remain in the service for the sermon, go to Middle School Class, or gather to ride together to Mark Twain School for Wyldlife. Parents can pick up the kids at Mark Twain at 8:30pm. More information is available about Wyldlife on the sign-in table in the Vine Time room, or by asking Kevin Eubanks.
NOTE: Any time our youth leave the church campus, they will need a permission form filled out by a parent.
