Diocese of Kansas Youth Events


YouthTide! where we learn more about the entire Episcopal Church Calendar. Come ADVENTure with us through all the seasons of the Episcopal church year! One weekend filled with Advent Wreaths, Gingerbread Nativities, King’s Cake, Spiritual Gifts, Silent Prayer, The Last Supper, an Easter Egg Hunt, and so much more! Christian poets say that the liturgical year is a wedding ring we wear to remember our covenant with the Christlike God.

From Advent and the preparation for Christ’s coming to Christmas and Epiphany, a journey through Lent, and the celebration of Easter, we will spend time experiencing silence, serving God, singing, worshiping, eating LOTS of yummy meals and hanging out with your diocesan youth friends!

We’ll also spend a little bit of time looking at other Christian denominations and World Religions and how they compare to Episcopalians.

MIQRA (meek-rah) is a weekend retreat that focuses on the Bible and allows teens to discover what’s in it, why we should care, and how to read it.

What’s with the name?
“MIQRA” is a Hebrew word, which means “reading,” and refers to the ancient Jewish practice of gathering at the local synagogue to hear a public reading of scripture, thus it was also sometimes used to mean, “Bible.”

Is the Bible read out loud at MIQRA?
Yes. We read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation in 72 hours! The reading is voluntary and participants take turns reading in shifts around the clock.

What else happens along with the reading?
So many fun things happen at MIQRA! We play wacky games like Church Commandos and Nave Olympics. We have a movie night. We worship with the Mustard Seeds, our diocesan youth band. Participants attend engaging workshops on various biblical topics and hear clergy speak about the bible. Those who attend also meet with a small group several times to make friends and talk about what they’re discovering about the Bible through the event.

Why do we have this event?
The Bible is obviously important to the Christian faith, but many Christians may not know what’s in it, may find it difficult to read, or may not know how it is relevant to their life. This event offers teens a chance to come together, make friends, ask questions, and learn about God’s love letter to the world.

Where: Grace Cathedral, 701 SW 8th Ave., Topeka, KS
Who: Grades 6-12
