The Youth Ministry at Holy Innocents is designed to create a safe, inviting atmosphere where youth can feel free to be themselves while nurturing their faith. The mission of this ministry is to help build a strong, Christian foundation for our youth so they are prepared to lead a Christian life when they become independent adults.
Youth Work & Ministry
Youth Work & Ministry initiatives at Holy Innocents seek to accompany and support 6th- 12th grade students and their families towards active lives of faith. Through practices of worship, prayer, community, hospitality, and mission, we at Holy Innocents aspire to be an inclusive community where young people come to a Christian understanding of themselves and God in the world.
At Holy Innocents we value the role that young people play in our community and offer many opportunities for them to engage in the life of our parish. Our young people lead busy and challenging lives, so our Youth Work & Ministry initiatives seek to walk alongside them every step of the way. We offer many holistic opportunities for fun, worship, community, and outreach to the wider community of Sandy Springs and beyond.
Middle School- The middle school students meet in the bean bag room in the Frost Youth Center from 10:15am-11:00am on Sunday mornings. During this time, the students learn about characters of the Old and New Testament through fun games, short video clips, and lots of discussion!
High School- The high school students meet in the back room in the Frost Youth Center from 10:15am-11:00am on Sunday mornings. During this time, the students engage in discussions regarding the “tough topics” of the Bible. They address questions such as “Is God a Male” and “Who Wrote the Bible- God or Humans?”
EYC- Episcopal Youth Community
Middle school students come together once a month on the third Sunday of the month for fun and fellowship. These laid back meetings involve fun games, activities, and, of course, free dinner! Join us from 4-6:00PM in the Frost Youth Center and see what this fun time is all about!
Friday Night Crowd
The High schoolers come together on the first Friday of the month from 6-8:00PM to eat great food, hang out with friends, and relax after a stressful week at school. There is no curriculum involved during this event, just a laid-back time to be with friends and have some fun.
EYC Off-Campus Events
Once a month the middle and high school students have a fun, off-campus event that allows them to take a break from their stressful schedules and have some fun with friends! Some of these events include Six Flags Day, a trip to Uncle Shuck’s Haunted Corn Maze, a toy drive for the Emmaus House, and much more! Check out the calendar below to see our upcoming events.
The youth group at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church believes in the need to carry out our faith through service. We offer several opportunities to give back to the community and would love for you to join us! Please contact Megan Petenbrink for details on service hours and for how you can get involved in giving back!
