Faith In Action: Working Together in Community, Session 11: Touching All

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Determine a congregational committee, such as Social Justice, that might partner with the Riddle and Mystery group on project which will involve the full congregation. Find the committee chair and ask that person if the youth may propose a joint project at the committee's next meeting.
  • Post a sheet of blank newsprint.

Description of Activity

Invite youth to engage your congregational community in a project that honors connections among all life that shares Earth. If the group has an ongoing Faith in Action project, broaden it to include the full congregation. To highlight this session's theme, consider an effort on behalf of stray animals locally or endangered species globally.

Help the youth plan a presentation to the congregation's Justice or Social Action Committee to gain their support to involve the congregation in a Faith in Action project. Write the principal points on newsprint. Include concrete ideas such as holding an educational workshop at your congregation, adding the action to a worship service or inviting a guest speaker to a potluck/presentation. (Consider inviting a youth who has been affected by the justice issue being addressed.) Practice the presentation. Arrange for as many youth as possible to join in making the presentation at the committee's next meeting. Gather props or handouts to strengthen the presentation.
