Children and Youth
Youth Group Fall Series
This is actually an intergenerational activity. (Adults are welcome too)
Need a little more joy in your life?
Think the pandemic is bad? Well…. St. Paul wrote his letters to the Philippians from his jail cell in Rome. How much worse could it get? Yet, he found joy, peace and contentment. Explore what scripture, tradition and reason can teach us about living through tough times.
Join us for our next conversation November 22, 2020 at 1:00 p.m.
Please read the following two scriptures. Reflect upon what is similar between the psalm and the passage from Philippains. What is comforting? What is confusing?
Psalm 91. 9-12 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, they habitation; There shall no evil befall the, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his Angel’s charge over the, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Philippians 4 :11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
Youth Activities through the Diocese of Olympia
- There will be a workshop on Sunday, November 8, co-hosted by Drawdown Seattle, specifically for people of faith. This is an overview of the many options available to us right now to reverse global warming, Episcopal church ministries will be highlighted (Grace Church’s Earth & Spirit Ministry and Saint Mark’s Creation Care Ministry) so you get a sense of what church members can do once organized!
