Upcoming Events



Coffee Hours

Grades 6-12 | Tuesday mornings from 7-8 a.m. and Thursday afternoons from 3:30-5 p.m.

Coffee Hours are a great way for youth to start their day or get their dose of the Episcopal youth community in the middle of the week. Whether it’s sharing a topic heavy on their heart or sharing a new meme, it’s always a time of fellowship! Plus, Director of Youth Ministry Jeremy Demarest will buy your coffee. Email Jeremy for location.


Formation: 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.

Grades 6-12 | Faith Lens | Third Floor Youth Rooms

Students in grades 6-12 will meet in the EYC Room (301) from 9:15-10:15 a.m. for Sunday Formation, where we will be working with the Faith Lens Curriculum. Our formation hour will be a safe space for middle and high school youth to explore new ideas and interests using thought-provoking, fun activities, reflection, and discussion. We will explore topics of faith as they relate to us today, and current events happening in the world week by week.  Youth will engage with Bible study, prayer, and service opportunities to explore their faith.

Youth as Worship Leaders

There are many ways for Calvary’s youth to serve in Sunday morning worship. Youth are encouraged to acolyte, lector, sing in the choir, usher, and/or help in Children’s Chapel. Below is the list of ministry opportunities and volunteer age requirements. Please contact Jeremy Demarest for further information on how to get involved with these ministries.

Acolyte: 7th–12th grades

Lector: 5th–12th grades

Usher: 6th–12th grades

Music: 1st–12th grades

Children’s Chapel Helper: 5th–12th grades


Sunday Afternoon Episcopal Youth Community (EYC)

Grades 6-12

Sundays are for EYC, and youth will be invited to different fellowship and service events each Sunday. The time and location will not always be the same, as some events call for different places and times, so keep your eyes on the announcements, EYC GroupMe, and EYC newsletter. If you are not on the GroupMe or newsletter and would like to be, please email Jeremy at jdemarest@calvarymemphis.org. Sunday EYC is a fellowship time for youth to learn more about themselves and their relationship with Christ, find love and safety in their community, and learn how we can make this world a better place together.

Wednesday Evenings


6th–12th Grades—6:15-7:15 p.m.
3rd floor Youth Room

Wednesday night Episcopal Youth Community will meet from 6:15–7:00 in the 3rd floor EYC room after dinner. Wednesday nights are for any youth in grades 6–12 to come together and participate in team-building activities, games, service projects, discussion, and prayer. At 6:55, we will walk together to the Sanctuary for music and Compline starting at 7 p.m. Any and all at Calvary are welcome to join us for Compline.
