P.R.A.Y. Announces 4 New Workshops
P.R.A.Y. volunteer Krissy Richardson will spearhead another mini-series on the Bible Basics RP3 Patches to wrap up 2021. Krissy is the Children’s Ministry Director of Grace Baptist Church in Warren, Oregon where she serves as Troop Shepherd for AHG Troop OR3130. Krissy hopes to assemble a team of presenters to join her for the workshop.

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! 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:
Find out different and creative ways that God uses fire to catch our attention and ignite us.
