In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
If Creating Home meets during your congregation's worship time, you can structure this project as an on-site "field trip." If congregational worship happens at another time, make arrangements for families to bring the Creating Home children to a specific worship service. Have parents bring the children to your meeting space, or another location outside the worship space, so you can meet with all the children and take them into the worship service as a group.
If you like, gather the children to help tidy the worship space when the service has finished. Explain that you will be caring for the faith home by cleaning the worship space, which is shared by everyone in the faith community. Show the children how to help straighten chairs, pick up scrap paper, recycle service bulletins, and rearrange the chalice and lighting materials. When the children are finished, ask them how it feels to care for their faith home worship space.
