Christian Formation - Grand Rapids Episcopal Youth

Grand Rapids Episcopal Youth: G.R.E.Y

G.R.E.Y. is a joint youth program between St. Mark’s and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Churches for 6th-12th grade youth, which also welcomes youth from other Episcopal churches in the Greater Grand Rapids area. We strive to connect the youth of our diocese to each other, our communities, and Christ through weekly formation, monthly social events and outreach activities. We serve breakfast every fourth Sunday to our neighbors at the St. Mark’s Breakfast Cafe, volunteer at Soup’s on For All, and Family Promise, participate in Access of West Michigan’s Hunger Walk, go to movies, attend the Episcopal Youth Event (EYE), and visit fun places like Cedar Point and Craig’s Cruisers.

Here's what's ahead:


We'll have our Wednesday night Oasis meetup at St. Mark's this week. We'll meet with the adults for "Episcopal 101", beginning at 6:30 p.m.; dessert will be served. Please let me know how many in your family will attend.

We still have volunteer spots available for Soup's On For All on Monday evening, January 27. This is a fundraiser for God's Kitchen and monies raised typically cover their entire food costs for the year. Reach out to me with volunteering details.

Wednesday, January 29, Feeding America will be at East Leonard Elementary from 3:30-6 and our help is needed to distribute food to those in need. Please let me know if you can help.

Applications for the Provincial Youth Event at Bellwether Farm in Ohio are due February 1. This event is February 28-March 1 and is for current high school students, There are a limited numbers of spots. Visit this link to apply:
