Faith In Action: Penny Jar, Session 11: The Gift Of Stewardship

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Penny jar (see Activity 3, Penny Jar)
  • Newsprint, markers and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Post blank newsprint.

Description of Activity

Use this Faith in Action activity after the children have done Activity 3, Penny Jar.

Gather the children. Review the ways to give the gift of stewardship in your congregation. Brainstorm where they would like to donate the money that they are collecting.

Remind the children that the penny jar will be in their room each time Wonderful Welcome meets. Encourage them to bring in pennies to contribute. Let them know that the money will be donated to the congregation from their entire group.

Share with the group the plan to present the money to the congregation, as you have discussed with the congregational leadership. If there are any preparations the children need to do to present this gift, facilitate those preparations now.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
