A Prayer for Young People
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. (Book of Common Prayer, p. 829.)

Middle & Upper Schools: Community
Small groups of Fifth Grade students recreated and redesigned a plant or animal cell with each organelle represented by everyday objects that have the same function. The students worked together to come up with ideas and agree on how they would present them to the other cell teams and convince them of the function of each organelle.
