Youth EducationGod 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 Groups (Middle & High School)
Disciples & Dragons!
Disciples & Dragons! Written by Episcopal priest Joe Kennedy, this is an exciting new role-playing adventure where students create characters, gear up, sleuth, build, battle, and explore how God’s people deal with important issues like identity, truth, and justice. All while putting ourselves into iconic Biblical stories with Cain & Able, the Tower of Babylon, the Plagues in Egypt, and many more. We’ll also jump into action and explore what it means as Episcopalians to have “common prayer,” using real armor (vestments), and gear (crosses), to adventure in Sunday worship.
Rolling for Initiative
- Weekly on Sunday from 5:30 – 7:00
- Dinner Included!
What’s in Your Inventory?
Players will be provided with the basics of what they need to participate. However, once a student commits to playing a character, it is their responsibility to come ready to imagine their part of the story each week.
Players may, however, want to consider having the following equipment for their personal use…
- A Student Bible (Find it on Amazon)
- RPG Dice Set (Find it on Amazon)
- D&D Players Handbook (Find it on Amazon)
Caregivers! If you’re wondering how in the world we’re connecting D&D to the Episcopal Life consider purchasing a copy of “The Ultimate Quest: A Geeks Guide to the (Episcopal) Church.” This will not only cue you into the lingo but will be very entertaining, too!
