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. Our weekly youth group meetup, Oasis, occurs on Wednesday evenings from late-September-mid-May at St. Andrew’s. Our first Oasis of the program year is Wednesday, October 4. The middle schoolers and high schoolers will be using the re:form New Testament Ancestors and Animate: Faith curriculums respectively. St. Andrew’s is located at 1025 3 Mile Rd. NE, between Plainfield and Fuller.
