Senior High We Heart Birmingham Weekend: A Heart for Our City
We are so excited about our first ever A Heart for Our City Weekend with Advent Youth Senior High. All students ages 9-12th grade are invited to join us from 9am-6pm on Saturday, January 25th for a day of exploring and learning about new parts of our city. We will visit Brother Bryan Mission, do a poverty simulation, have a Birmingham scavenger hunt, and visit the Civil Rights Museum. We will end the weekend by worshiping at 16th Street Baptist Church on Sunday morning at their 11am service. Cost for the weekend is $35.
Senior High SOS Memphis Trip | June 7-12
It’s time to start signing up for our annual trip to partner with Service Over Self (SOS), a home repair ministry in Memphis, TN. This year, the trip will be June 7th-12th. Cost is $395 and scholarships are available! Spaces are limited so sign up ASAP.
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.
Check out our 2019-2020 Small Groups! There are Junior High, Senior High, and school-based groups.
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.

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.
