In the summer of 2023, the EYC will travel to Atlanta, Georgia, to spend a week at Mercy Community Church June 3-10. Mercy Community Church is a church for folks struggling with homelessness and mental health.
Throughout the week, they offer many services and activities that we will be a part of, such as daily breakfast and daily lunch, a clothing closet, art classes, food stamps assistance, daily bible study, and lots and lots of music. We will spend time assisting the Mercy Community with any tasks that they need help with, worshiping, eating, and building community with them.

We will learn about the root causes of poverty while working with Mercy Community Church. And will learn about the diverse communities within the city and how some have been disproportionately affected by systemic policies that perpetuate poverty and homelessness.
Mercy Community Church is the Church that Jeremy, the youth director of Calvary Episcopal Church, worked at as an intern in 2017-18.
We only have space for 16 youth, so sign up as soon as you can.
The total cost of the trip is $350 per person (scholarships available). A non-refundable deposit of $175 is due at registration to reserve your spot. Please pay the deposit online or via check made out to Calvary Episcopal Church with “EYC Mission trip” in the memo line. You may either give this check to Jeremy directly or drop it in the offering plate on a Sunday.
If you are unable to afford this fee, please do not feel you are unable to go. Partial and full scholarships are available; check the scholarship box on the form, and Jeremy will reach out.
Due to us having to buy tickets for flights, the deadline to apply is Wednesday, Feb. 15.
