In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Egbert Ethelred Brown spent much of his life building congregations by inviting people in, not so they would believe as he believed, but so they would find encouragement to discover their own truths. This activity gives children an experience of ministry as they think about why and how they might encourage people to visit your congregation.
Invite children to brainstorm what they like about your congregation, what is special about it, and what they think others might like to know about the congregation. When the list is complete, children can either make individual posters or cooperate on making one large poster with a heading such as "Come to (your congregation's name) because ... " or "We like (your congregation's name) because ... "
Engage children in deciding where the poster might be displayed in service of the congregation, such as a fellowship hall or entranceway. You might also photograph or scan the poster to post it on the congregation's website, as encouragement to people considering a visit.
