Leader Resource 3: Faith In Action Letters to Parents

Here are two sample letters to engage parents' help in (1) the children's retelling of "The Wounded Seal" or (2) a fundraising bake sale to help an organization working to protect seals from hunting. Customize as you wish for the long-term Faith in Action project you plan to do.

Dear Parents,

The children in Moral Tales have been learning about Empathy. They heard a story about a seal that was wounded during a seal hunt. As part of our Faith in Action projects where we put our new learning into practice, we have decided to have a bake sale to raise money for an organization that is
working to stop seal hunting in Canada . The seal-hunting industry in Canada does very little to promote economic well being for the fisherman, yet causes the often cruel deaths of over 250,000 baby seals each year.

We hope that you will help your child bake something for the bake sale which we will hold on (day, date, time) during coffee hour at our congregation. If you are able to contribute baked goods, please bring them to the coffee hour room before dropping off your child for religious education.

Thanks for your participation,

Dear Parents,

The children in Moral Tales have been learning about empathy. They heard a story about a seal that was wounded during a seal hunt. As part of our Faith in Action projects where we put new learning into practice, we have decided to retell the story during worship on (day, date) in order to share our learning with others.

Please bring your child 30 minutes early on (day, date). If your child is role-playing a seal, you may like to dress him/her in gray or brown. We will meet in the sanctuary before worship so the children can practice their presentation.

Thank you for your help!
