Pohick Youth Group (EYC)


Welcome!

EYC

The Pohick EYC consists of three youth groups for different ages: 5th & 6th Grades, Junior High, and Senior High. During the school year, regular EYC meetings for Senior and Junior High occur from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM on most Sundays. The 5th and 6th grade meet at the same time, but only on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. All the EYC groups meet from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM the first Sunday of most months for Dinner Night. Holidays and other events sometimes cause this general pattern to be different, so check the calendar tab, above, for the upcoming months' calendars!

There are over 40 youth currently active in EYC, and any youth grades 5th-12th is welcome. Pohick's Youth Minister develops the youth programming, recruits volunteers and provides answers to any questions you may have. His name is Rusty Booth, and he can be reached via email at rusty@pohick.org or by calling 703-339-6572, ext. 106.

High School seniors can also apply for the Robert and Bernice Kilmarx & Anne Powell Scholarship, which each June awards a $2,000 grant for post-secondary education to up to three youth who are currently active in Pohick's youth programs. (Click here to review the application.) The deadline for the application for the April 30, 2020.

On July 11 - 18, 2020, we'll be heading to Reading Pennsylvania for our summer mission trip. Read about a past mission trip at Patch.com!

Please contact Rusty Booth for more info about EYC or any of our events!
