The P.R.A.Y. Program: Religious Activities with Youth


The P.R.A.Y. program… Programs of Religious Activities with Youth brings young people closer to Christ through dynamic programs that enable adults in their ministry with youth. Programs and resources are offered through churches and youth agencies for them to work together for the benefit of youth. The programs consists of four different parts based on grade level.  These grade levels roughly correspond to the different ranks in the scouting programs, but since the P.R.A.Y. program is a program of the church, it goes strictly by grade level (not by rank).  P.R.A.Y., offers an Adult Mentor component for parents. Parents may choose to serve as Mentors and be involved in the P.R.A.Y. program alongside their children.

The Men’s Club of Cedar Cross has committed to ensuring that each youth member of Cub Scout Pack 21 and Boy Scout Troop 221, which we sponsor, earns his religious award.  Members of Girl Scout Troops and Camp Fire units may also earn awards as well.  Youth not affiliated with these organizations can also earn the awards.  The youth participants do not need to a member or attend Cedar Cross to earn the award.  The men of Cedar Cross may serve as counselors or help guide youth and their families toward the awards.  This program is taught under the auspices of the church.  Students are required to present their work to the pastor for final approval.

For those in the youth organizations, the goal is to start working on the program appropriate for the youth’s age in November.  Then finish the program by the organizations recognition day in the February.
