Fig Youth

In the Transfiguration Youth Ministry, we do things a little differently. We love God, love life, and love people. And it shows in everything we do!

Mission: To seek & serve Christ in all people.

[04/06/20]   Gospel of John, chapter 12, verses 1-11

The Gospel for the Monday in Holy Week, read by beloved youth confirmation teacher, Angie Hodges Gott.
Collect of the Day:
Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. #lent2020 #holyweek #gospelofjohn #youthministry @transfigdallas

Follow along each day this week as our Sunday school teachers read the Gospel and help us observe Holy Week.

Great youth council meeting today! Wish I’d remembered to take a couple pics!

Friends, our Lenten waiting table has been so fun to add to each week. I really wish we’d been able to do this together in the Youth Center. Watch this week as I add to it each day and then strip it down on Maundy Thursday. #holyweek #lentenwaitingtable #lent2020 #youthministry #theepiscopalchurchwelcomesyou @transfigdallas @dana_late_to_the_gram_jean

They are small and they are fake 😂 but they’re palms. How are you observing Palm Sunday? #palmsunday #youthministry #theepiscopalchurchwelcomesyou #affirmingchurchindallas @transfigdallas @dana_late_to_the_gram_jean

Palm Sunday: How to Greet Royalty

Starting today, Palm Sunday, and running through Holy Saturday, we have our Sunday school teachers sharing the Gospel each day, to be followed by a prayer, reflection, and/or suggested activity for the day. Our offering to you, both youth and families, to help you mark the days as we walk with Jesus through this most holy of weeks.

We start with Riley, who is co-teaching 6th & 7th grade this year, and is a wonderful teacher and servant leader! Riley reads to us from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 21, verses 1-11.

Watch our Sunday school lesson today to go with the Gospel, found here: https://youtu.be/tCJzUQvTEeU and share your homemade palms and Holy Week calendars when you're finished (described in the lesson). Have a blessed week!

If you were going to meet royalty, how would you greet them? Join us live on Palm Sunday @ 10:15am and then watch the lesson on www.transfiguration.net/watch for ideas on how to mark the days this Holy Week. #lent2020 #socialdistancing #youthministry #theepiscopalchurchwelcomesyou #affirmingchurchindallas @transfigdallas @dana_late_to_the_gram_jean

So much fun in Crossover tonight! We did evening prayer, had great music, talked about Judas betraying Jesus, how it feels to be betrayed and how easy it might be to be pressured into betraying someone. THEN, we played a crazy scavenger hunt. So much fun! We even spun the wheel and our little guest, Ruthie, won the drawing! #youthgroup #youthgroupgames #eveningprayer #theepiscopalchurchwelcomesyou #affirmingchurchindallas @transfigdallas @dana_late_to_the_gram_jean @ Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration @ Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration

[03/26/20]   Small group for the Netflix Party but full of golden nuggets like this: we’re watching Spy Kids and I just said in the chat “the Bible tells stories about people like Floop who mess up, confess what they’ve done, and are transformed by love” and one of the 6th graders said “like Zacheus. Or Joseph’s brothers” ♥️♥️♥️

Small group, had some technical difficulties but not bad for a first try! We’re even talking about the Bible! #spykids #youthgroup #theepiscopalchurchwelcomesyou @transfigdallas @dana_late_to_the_gram_jean

Scavenger hunt via zoom tonight in Crossover 😂 after evening prayer, the question of the day, and Goods & Get Betters. Comment with your answer to the question of the day: when have you been asked to do something difficult and said yes?
