EYC Meal Sign-Ups

Sitting together for dinner and breaking bread is a BIG part of our fellowship every Sunday night and wouldn't be possible without the help of all of our EYC parents!

Parents of youth that are participating in EYC are requested to plan, prepare, serve and clean-up for at least 2 meals meals each year. It takes about three parents/volunteers each Sunday to help out. The students/leaders really appreciate your help and support with our meals!
