Called to prepare students for a life of joyful service to God, the SCPCYM equips youth to claim their identity as children of God and to grow on their journey as followers of Christ.
The name of our youth ministry at Sugar Creek Presbyterian is EPPIC. EPPIC stands for Experiencing Peace and Power In Christ. Our Sunday evening gatherings are called SNAC (Sunday Night Around Church). Twice a month EPPIC SNAC gathers from 6-8:30PM in our youth room for games, worship, small groups, snacks and hang-out time. Generally, once a month we go off campus for an activity such as laser tag, a corn maze or bowling. Once a month we also engage in a ministry project together. Our ministry projects include things like making care packages for our college students, creating blessing bags for the homeless, serving a meal at New Hope Church and orchestrating our Jubilee Christmas project which provides gifts for families at Ruskin School in Dayton. Any student in grades 7-12 is welcome to participate in our activities.

2016 High School Mission Trip to Milwaukee
In 2016, 17 youth and 4 adults traveled to Milwaukee, WI to serve the needs of others who are hurting and need the message of hope in this inner city area that is still segregated in many ways. The youth and adults served through construction projects and relational ministries, that made a lasting impact on their journey of faith. The youth shared during Worship on July 11 that moving “outside of their box” and their comfort zone, they grew in their friendship with Jesus, with their friends and know that God is calling them to live a life of service!
