The name “Eikon” comes from the ancient Greek for “mirror-like representation,” in the sense that Jesus was the perfect mirror-like human image of His Father on earth. The hope and prayer of our ministry is that through our time together, we would grow to be mirror-like images of Christ in our daily lives. Eikon Student Ministries welcomes all students in 7th through 12th grade.
Where to Find Us
Youth Sunday School classes begin at 10 am in the Youth Center. Lessons focus on learning how to read and interpret the stories in the Bible.
Every Sunday, our youth group meets from 6:00 - 7:30 pm. This time is focused on helping us get to know each other and the Lord through games, worship music, and an interactive message. Dinner is served early at 5:30 pm.
Wednesdays during the school year, youth small groups are held weekly from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. It is open to all 7th through 12th graders. It is a time for fellowship, Bible Study, prayer, and reflection through discussion. Groups will be divided up by age or gender depending on the nature of the study. Dinner is served early at 5:30 pm.
Throughout the year the youth group participates in several mission projects that yield unique experiences. On the journey to be a disciple of God we believe there is no better way to grow than learning to be the “hands and feet” of Christ, both where we are planted and afar. At Eikon, we have served our town with random acts of kindness and mission work days.
Every 2 years, Eikon travels abroad for an international mission trip. The location of this trip will vary and is open to all 11th and 12th graders. While the work to bless others is the focus, we also remain intentional in teaching the youth that as followers of Christ we are called to surrender our lives to Him. Previous international trips have been to the Dominican Republic and to Northern Ireland.
The youth have the option of attending two camps each year. First is the East/West District Camp at the Lakeview Methodist Conference Center. Lakeview is all about making new friends within our district and learning about Christ. Campers participate in their choice of a wide range of activities throughout the day, from ropes courses to gaga ball to archery. Small groups and worship gatherings are held daily. It is a faith-building 5 days, and is usually recommended for our younger Eikon members.
Our second option for camp is Camp Eagle, a high activity adventure camp. This camp is located in Rocksprings, TX, and focuses on building relationships with those in your current youth group, as well as allowing campers to deepen their personal relationships with God. Activities range from rock climbing to zip lining, with lots of hiking and Bible studies in between! Camp Eagle lasts 6 days, and is recommended for the older students in our youth group.
Age recommendations are simply recommendations. Anyone in the youth group may participate in the camp(s) of their choice.
