In "Signs of Our Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants take an active role in creating a congregational worship service.
Invite children to help plan and lead a worship service for all ages in the congregation. Use Handout 1, Common Worship Components for Children, and their experience in this session to identify the purpose of worship components. Lead the children to name UU rituals and talk about the purpose of the rituals. Invite the children to suggest rituals, songs, readings, and other ideas for each component and find a role for children in leading part of the worship service.
Be sure to include children in the actual worship service. Children who do not wish to be in the service may still enjoy working on the planning and being ushers or greeters. Make it clear that all of these roles are ways to be a worship leader.
