ECSMC youth are integral members of the church. We call them “the MYF” (Mennonite Youth Fellowship). They regularly take a turn preparing and serving a Monday night gathering meal, set up chairs and tables each week for the meal, and help in the worship services. Each Sunday, they are part of the staff in the nursery during the service. Every summer, the MYF embarks on a service and learning trip (sometimes in the U.S., sometimes internationally) or attends a Mennonite youth convention. The MYF meets for Sunday school, often using the Gather Round curriculum from MennoMedia and engaging in lively discussion and possibly, occasionally, eating snacks. They also meet monthly for Bible studies and social events, interspersed with service projects.
