Youth Formation at GSL

Youth Formation at GSL may look at little different this coming fall, but make no mistake, we are working hard to make it one for the books. Above is a general outline for the times you can expect to gather for all things youth and EYC.   While we always will stick to these times, watch for emails containing where we will be meeting, whether that be Zoom or a socially distanced outdoor activity! To stay connected on where and what the EYCs will be, contact awilliams [at] gracestlukes [dot] org.

September 13

Celebration Sunday, September 13: We’re looking forward to our first socially distanced EYC of the year. We will gather at “The Field,” located on 2233 Harbert Avenue for an evening with Bob Ross! Come paint along with America’s beloved artist, games, and Compline with Amzie and Jess! Middle School will gather from 4-5 p.m. and High School from 5-6. All you need to bring is yourself and a mask! We will have sanitation products available and a few extra masks on hand. It has been rumored that Bob himself might even make an appearance. You can contact Amzie Williams (awilliams [at] gracestlukes [dot] org) with any questions.


An opportunity for fellowship, relaxing, and fun! EYC offers a more laidback atmosphere for youth to build meaningful and lasting friendships. This time is less focused on structured learning and more devoted to community building, self-expression, impactful service, and seeking to understand the ever-changing and messy world around us. Please note that locations and times may change depending on the nature of our activities, look out for monthly emails from awilliams [at] gracestlukes [dot] org to keep updated on all things EYC. In addition, the what and where of EYC is subject to change concerning conditions of COVID 19, but know we always plan to have something offered at this time for you and your family!
