Our Youth groups are for young people, in grades 6-12 and above. For younger ages, please visit our Children’s Ministry page.
EYC (Episcopal Youth Community):
EYC is an opportunity for our young people, in grades 6-12, to come together for fellowship, fun, and prayer.
For youth in grades 6-8, Rite 13 begins the study of self, society, sexuality and spirituality. Rite 13 is named for the rite of passage that happens during this time, becoming a teenager and turning 13.
J2A (Journey to Adulthood Program):
For youth in grades 9-10, J2A (Journey to Adulthood) continues the study of self, society, sexuality and spirituality. During these years, the young people go deeper into these thematic areas as the learn more about themselves and the world around them. Each youth is invited to participate in a Pilgrimage at the end of these two years. Youth, with the help of leaders, decide where they want to go on pilgrimage and are responsible for preparation and fundraising.
YAC (Youth Active in the Church):
For youth in grades 11-12, YAC (Youth Active in the Church) is a two year program with the first year focused on Confirmation. Youth follow the Confirm not Conform curriculum that guides each young person, with the help of a mentor, in discerning if he or she would like to be confirmed in the Spring.
Are you a parent of a college student? Then you’ll want to participate in our College Connections ministry! Sign up using the below form and members of the St. Martin’s community will send your student thoughtful notes, prayers, and care packages throughout the year. We want to keep our college students connected to the parish, and remind them we are praying for them and supporting them during this pivotal time in their lives. Sign up here.
