Who We Are?

Our middle and high school students faithfully attend morning worship together, online faith formation discussions, and work together to live out their faith by serving the Wake Forest community. As we navigate our world, we walk in love together to deepen our faith, serve others, and build meaningful relationships with each other.

In normal times, we love spending time with other members of our parish, from entertaining younger kids at parish picnics, to hearing the faith stories of older members and bringing homemade muffins to parish friends who are ill. St. John’s youth are also very active in our Episcopal Diocese of NC Youth Programs including Bishop’s Ball (retreat and dance event), Middle and High School retreats, and HUGS Camp for differently-abled summer campers.

What We Do?

Normally (when not in the middle of a global pandemic) the EYC (Episcopal Youth Community) gathers after grabbing a snack or lunch during the parish Coffee Hour after Sunday worship. Our youth come together regularly for discussions centered on Christian formation, to engage in a service project, and/or join in structured fellowship time.

Our EYC meetings provide the space for students to explore together how our faith and spirituality relate to every other aspect of their lives, and how it shapes us as citizens of the world.

When do we meet?

Following Diocese and CDC guidelines to keep our youth and families safe, we currently are meeting in-person on a limited basis during the COVID-19 pandemic, finding opportunities outdoors to serve our community and sometimes gathering by Zoom.
