What is SITC?
God's Hands and Feet in H-Town
Soul in the City is a week of Christian service, study, worship, food, fun and fellowship. During the week, all participants are housed at St. Timothy’s Anglican Church in Spring, Texas. A typical day consists of personal devotions followed by breakfast, family service projects, lunch, free/fun time, dinner, study, family time, worship, church time, cookies, and much needed sleep. Soul in the City recognizes both the energy that the camp as a whole brings to fun, service, and worship, as well as the importance that small group "family time" plays in having deep meaningful discussion about the lesson and its application to our lives. As SitC is made up of youth groups from across the diocese, we also recognize the importance of time spent in formation with each of our youth groups and the role this plays when we return to our lives after camp; thus, every day closes with separate "church time" formation, debrief, and discussion. However, one of the most fun aspects of SitC is the "family group" - divided into HS and JH families, these consist of ten or so youth and three leaders from different age groups, generations, churches, and walks of faith. It is in these families that we serve, laugh, study, and deeply dive into our pursuit of Christ and gain an appreciation for the power of God working in each one of our stories.
We ask that you would please be in prayer for this event leading up to and during the week of July 14-20 and we would love to have you join us if you can!
If this sounds like something your youth would like to be a part of, talk to your youth director or priest and contact our communications chair (below). Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!
