Christian Formation is offered during the school year for ages four to adult from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Ages four to 3rd grade meet in the Parish Hall classrooms, grades 4-8 meet in the Main Building on the 2nd floor classrooms. High School students meet in the Youth Room.
Episcopal Youth for Christ is the youth ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation. Any teen currently in the 6th through 12th grade can attend and take part in the activities and events that EYC hosts. So can your friends!
EYC meets two Sunday afternoons and two Wednesday evenings each month. On Wednesday nights, we eat dinner together. Both Sundays and Wednesdays are open to middle and high school students. We want you to invite your friends, too. Our gatherings are casual. On Sunday afternoons, we get together for a local community service project, a movie, an offsite event like Whirlyball, laser tag, hiking or mini-golf. Sometimes, because life and school keep us so busy, we just hang out in the Youth Room and chill out, play foosball, board games, ping pong, listen to music and just talk. Why is EYC not like most activities teens are involved in?
We are Christ centered. We want to be like Jesus. We teach and practice the many aspects of faith, unconditional love, charity, fellowship and responsibility to our world, our families and our church.
We are safe. We are encouraging. We are friendly. You are welcome.
Annunciation’s EYC community is currently made up of students who attend eight different high schools and eleven different middle schools from eight different cities and towns. EYC teens are artists, musicians, athletes, writers, martial artists, debaters, equestrians, actors, chefs, coders, scouts, babysitters and dancers. But most importantly, we are friends. Everyone is welcome. Our time together is spent having fun, being encouraging, listening, laughing, praying and figuring life out. We go on mission trips. We do good works. We serve others. We build community. We tear down walls. We open doors. We have room for you!
This group of young ladies grades six to twelve meet monthly to carry out service projects, learn about our church, study the Bible, support each other and pray for the needs of the church and community… and of course plan some social activities just for fun. JDOK meets the 2nd Sunday of the month.
People of all ages are invited to find the trip that best meets their needs and help us to impact the world for Christ.
This mission primer is open to all fourth and fifth grade students who would like to learn more about serving on a mission team, without spending the night away from home. This is a three-day event during the summer where the students serve both on and off Annunciation’s campus as the hands, feet, and heart of Christ in our community.
This mission experience is open to all sixth through eighth grade students who are ready to take the next step in serving on a mission team. Students and their adult leaders are together for four days and three nights, staying on campus, serving in the community, and spreading the love of Christ to all those in need.
The High School Mission Trip is open to all high school students who are active in EYC. This team frequently travels to other states to help where it is needed most. Recent trips have included Oklahoma to help with recovery efforts after the tornados, Galveston to assist with hurricane recovery efforts, Colorado to assist members of an Episcopal church in establishing an outdoor prayer garden for the community, and New Orleans to serve the people in need.
Once a year, prior to the visit to Annunciation from the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, we hold an overnight confirmation retreat for any student in 6th through 12th grades. During this retreat, the students will learn more about what it means to be a Christian, what it means to be an Episcopalian, and what it means to live an active life of faith. They will also develop close relationships with other students on the retreat that will last a lifetime.
Annunciation is home to Boy Scout Troop 114. They meet every Monday night in the Parish Hall all year. They host campouts once a month, help the Scouts to advance in rank, and have a wonderful time learning lifelong skills.
