P.R.A.Y. Announces Online Series
P.R.A.Y. volunteer Krissy Richardson will offer a mini-series on the Bible Basics RP3 Patches. Krissy is the Children’s Ministry Director of Grace Baptist Church in Warren, Oregon where she serves as Troop Shepherd for AHG Troop OR3130. As a volunteer writer for the RP3 Series, Krissy is uniquely suited to lead these workshops (see article below).

This series is for all grades and it targets families: a parent or guardian is required to participate alongside their child. Discussion will be directed to adult-child teams and encourage interaction between them.
All are welcome! Are you interested in doing your Duty to God? Are you curious about the RP3 Series? Whether you are active in church or not, you are invited! This workshop will introduce you to the Bible, facilitate discussion between parent/guardian and child, and encourage you on your faith journeys.

There are 4 workshops to earn 4 patches over the next 4 months. Participants may pick and choose which patches you want to earn, i.e. you do not have to attend all 4 workshops. Here are the topics and dates for these workshops:
The Good Book - January 30, 2021 - Register now!
Learn important lessons about the Bible and how God can speak to you when you read it.
The Good Book patch is the “anchor” patch because it is the first patch that should be earned. It talks not only about WHAT the Bible is, but WHY the Bible is important, and WHY we should study it. 
Tents and Shelters - February 27, 2021
Set apart a place to meet with God and find shelter in God's presence in your daily living.
Making Room - March 27, 2021
Make room for others and for God!
Trust and obey God in order to grow strong and fruitful.
Schedule and Times
The workshop schedule consists of 3 sessions (each session is 45 minutes) with 1 short break (15 minutes) and 1 long break (1 hour). Here are the starting and ending times by time zone:

Pacific          8am - noon
Mountain      9am - 1pm
Central         10am - 2pm
Eastern        11am - 3pm

Registration and Cost
Registration is through the P.R.A.Y. webstore. There is a $5 fee for the cost of the patch including shipping.

Why RP3?
  • To have fun reading the Bible and to grow in faith!
  • To interact with a parent/guardian or other adult who cares for you.
  • To learn what RP3 is all about and practice using it for Bible study.
  • If you are in a scouting program, to earn a patch for your uniform to show that faith is important to you!
PRAY Volunteer Writer Krissy Richardson
Here's a picture of Krissy Richardson when she led two RP3 virtual sessions for BSA's Virtual Interfaith Week in July 2020. Her audience included all ages (Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and adults) and she taught two patches (The Good Book, and Tents and Shelters). The new 2021 mini series (besides including The Good Book and Tents and Shelters patches) will feature the two patches written and designed by Krissy, i.e. Making Room, and Trees.

As a girl, Krissy participated in the Girl Guides of Canada where she grew up. Today, she is involved in American Heritage Girls and serves as a Troop Shepherd in charge of the spiritual growth of the girls in Troop OR3130 in Grace Baptist Church in Warren, Oregon where Krissy is the Children’s Ministry Director. Thank you, Krissy, for volunteering your time to share your love of Scripture with scouts and families through virtual workshops!
