Service

Church of the Common Ground

The youth take a visit to the Church of the Common Ground once a year. Church of the Common Ground is an Episcopal Church that serves our homeless population in Atlanta. We make sandwiches to go in bagged lunches that we hand out after the service. It's a very powerful experience to serve our community in this way.


Our next visit is November 11th.

Men's Extension

The youth make a meal for the men at Men's Extension in Marietta every other month. The youth bring the supplies, cook, and serve the meal to those in need.

Involvement in the Service

Acolytes

Our youth help us worship by helping at the altar. Whenever they get the urge to carry the torch, they're allowed to begin acolyting. Over time, they move up to Crucifer, where they carry the cross in. The Crucifer also helps Rev. Deby set the table before the Eucharist. Contact Meg for more information.

Diocesan Events

Diocesan Youth Service Day

The Youth Service Day is on August 25th at All Saints Atlanta. It's an all day event that includes lunch. This is a great time to get some service hours and to hear about serving in our community. For our youth who went on the mission trip, this will be a time to do some follow ups with the organizations you served. We will meet at the church at 8:30 and plan to be back around 6. The service day is $10 per person. Let Meg know if you can come and help drive. 

Happening

Happening is a spiritual renewal weekend for high school youth, led by high school youth. The weekend focuses on growing closer in your own faith by listening to talks, and talking in small groups. Second semester freshman and up can go to the weekend on September 7-9. The weekend takes place at Camp Mikell in Toccoa, Ga. The weekend costs $100. Meg will be there for the whole weekend. And she’d love to answer questions if you have any. If you haven’t been to Happening before, sign up as a candidate here. The deadline is August 26th.

New Beginnings

New Beginnings is a spiritual renewal weekend for middle school youth, led by high school youth and adults. The weekend focuses on relationships between our friends, family, and God. Youth in 6th grade and above can come. High School youth can serve on team, even if they’ve never come before. Meg helps run the weekend and she’ll be there for the whole weekend. To sign up as a high school team member, use this link. This deadline is September 9th. To sign up as a middle school youth, the link will be out at the end of August.

Youth Lock In at Annual Council

While Annual Council is voting on new decisions in the church, the youth get together to hang out and have a lock in. The youth lead the service for Annual Council the next morning. This year, the Lock In will be at Holy Innocents Episcopal Church in Sandy Springs on November 9-10. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry might even stop by to play a game. Youth can register here. The deadline is November 4th.
