Prayer For Young Persons from The Book of Common Prayer

God our Father, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world: Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world, and that following you is better than chasing after selfish goals. Help them to take failure, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to hold their faith in you, and to keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Youth Group

There are many opportunities for teens to grow in faith through trusted personal relationships with their peers and appropriate adult advisors.  We are committed to creating a safe place place for middle and high school teens where matters of the heart and soul can be shared and discussed. All staff and volunteers who work with young people at Church of the Resurrection has been background-checked by the state of California and have received training and recognizing and preventing child abuse.

Youth Group
On most Sundays our youth group meets on Sunday evening. In addition to goofing around we explore a range of contemporary issues of life and faith. Our hope is to give our kids a solid understanding of the Episcopal Church and Christianity, then ask them to question it, test it with their own experience and apply it to the world. The teens also take on periodic service projects, retreats and trips to places like Squaw Valley, Disneyland and Santa Cruz.
 
UPCOMING EVENTS
 
Episcopal Youth Event "EYE" 2020
Episcopal Youth Event sign-up now! Please apply now!  Can't say enough good things about my experience at the Episcopal Youth Event in 2011.  EYE 2020 (July 7-11) is looking to be even more awesome. The Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) is a triennial event for the entire Episcopal Church. Over 1500 people (high school students, adult mentors, and Bishops from around the church) come together for a little under a week. Time is spent in worship, large group presentations, small group discussions on a variety of topics and a lot of time hanging out and meeting people from around the world. EYE2020 is taking place in Washington D.C. and the diocese is subsidizing most of the costs.  I would like to take as many youth as possible to this, so please apply early so we can hopefully accommodate everyone.  We can help fundraise the remaining amount.
