Leader Guidelines (Signs of Our Faith)

Read each session ahead of time and plan with your co-leader. Be organized enough to be flexible. Read stories through at least once so your storytelling has a good flow.

Tapestry of Faith programs are designed for adaptation to your congregational needs. Use Alternate Activities to replace core activities if they seem better suited to your group. Since this program focuses on rituals, pay attention to Opening and Closing rituals. Treat materials used in rituals with respect and encourage children to do the same.

Throughout the program, you will explore ways to live faithfully in the world. Children may realize that they make mistakes or poor choices sometimes, and sometimes do not act in caring or fair ways. Acknowledge that this is true for everyone. None of us are perfect. Label bad choices as mistakes and encourage children to make better choices—more faithful choices—next time.
