Sign up for the Junior High Fall Retreat!
All 7th and 8th graders are invited to join us at Advent for our Junior High Fall Retreat on September 14th and 15th. We’ll have some fun around Birmingham, spend the night inside the church, and end after the 9:00 a.m. service on Sunday morning.
Or contact Tucker@CathedralAdvent.com with questions.
Sign up for the Senior High Fall Retreat!
All 9th-12th graders are invited to join us for our annual Fall Retreat at Camp Winnataska! We will leave Friday afternoon on September 6th and return Saturday afternoon on September 7th.
The youth ministry wants all youth to know the God who loves them, to see themselves and all things beneath the cross, and to become disciples of Jesus Christ.
A vital part of our ministry. We study the Bible intensively and build community in a smaller, more intimate setting. We try to provide a Bible study for young men and young women in each grade level, and also to provide small groups for different public and private schools.
Episcopal Youth Community provides a variety of fellowship and friendship opportunities. Some of these involve service, worship, teaching, and fun stuff like laser tag, go-carts, hiking, dinners, desserts, etc. We host two major events each semester for Junior High and Senior High. We also have summer and weekend programs: spring paintball battle, Six Flags trips, Advent Bowl, and Movie Nights.
Perhaps our strongest ministry component. Trips include service to the poor, Bible study, teaching, fellowship, and worship. Senior High students take a trip to Rescue Atlanta Church every MLK weekend, and our Junior High students have our In-Town Mission Trip to Fairfield each President’s Day Weekend. Summer mission trips vary. We hope every student will have the opportunity to participate in at least one mission trip.
We offer engaging classes centered on the Gospel. For Junior High, we usually separate the boys and the girls for teaching. For Senior High, we have three formats: Teaching and Discussion, Town Hall, and Student Testimony (where we share how Christ has worked in our lives). Twice a semester we offer “Choices” (where students can choose from any one of three classes), after enjoying a session of contemporary worship.
Advent Youth Worship Band
Comprised of high school students and plays at our Senior High Sunday School in the Undercroft. If you love to play music, please let us know!
Personal Relationships and Pastoral Guidance
The backbone of our program! If students do not wish to participate in any of our organized programs, we are still always interested in encouraging, guiding, advising, and listening to them.
