In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Many congregations have their own covenant statement. It may be one created by the congregation or a version of a traditional statement such as the Blake covenant. This activity gives participants the chance to engage with their own congregation's covenant, and results in a display that will encourage members of all ages to pay attention to the purpose and commitments shared by the faith community.
Explain to the group that you will create a large banner to display your congregation's covenant. Display the congregational covenant on newsprint and (if it is not too long) read it aloud. Determine who will write what part on the banner. Encourage participants to sketch out in pencil what they will write, and to try to fill the space evenly. While some children write the words on the banner, others can decorate with pictures or symbols to represent the words of the covenant.
