Episcopal Youth Community - EYC
The adolescent years can be some of the most difficult. We
stand ready to assist youth and parents, and we trust our
ministry will offer insight and vision for youth as they travel
on their individual and corporate spiritual journeys.
Generally, EYC meets with the Youth of St. Alexis, Jackson, on Sunday night for dinner and a blend of
social and spiritual activities. In a relaxed atmosphere
of fellowship and fun, the Curate and adult mentors attempt to
bring the Christian faith to life in ways that relate to the
daily experience of youth. Educational program, social events
and service projects.
Vacation Bible School
"Christmas in June"

Methodist and Saint Alban's. With the additional children from Saint Paul's Church will also come
additional adult help.
St. Albanís engaged in serving others along with St. Paulís
and Bovina United Methodist churches by conducting Vacation
Bible School June 20-23 at St. Albanís. The churches have
decided to rotate Vacation Bible School on a three year cycle.
This year St. Albanís had the privilege. The St. Alban's parish
hall was transformed into Christmas in June.
The community gathered for fellowship, fun and food. Each
night a crew of volunteers arrived ready for the eveningís
activities and left joyfully exhausted only to return the next
night for a repeat. This exuberant, contagious enthusiasm is St.
Albanís at its best.

case you are wondering what in the world I am talking about, let
me tell you. One activity was to trace your hand on green paper
and decorate with glitter glue. The children and many of the
adults present completed this activity resulting in a wreath of
The wreath is on display in the parish hall along with the
banners. The start of one hand picked up where the other left
off in the same way that each member of the community gave. Each
gave as he/she best could: monetary donations, prayers, served
meals, supervised the space jump, created crafts, painted
banners, traced hands, set up and took down tables, took out
trash, and sang. Many hands make light work; and indeed there
were many hands.
