Alternate Activity 2: The Most Important Promise (10 minutes), Session 2: The Gift Of Covenant

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Group covenant from Activity 4, We Covenant Together
  • Optional: Paper and markers or crayons for all participants

Preparation for Activity

  • Post the newsprint with the covenant generated in Activity 4, We Covenant Together.

Description of Activity

This activity engages the group in why we make promises to each other.

Review the covenant with the group. Ask which promise they think is the most important and why. As the leader, you can volunteer the promise you think is the most important and why. It would illustrate the point best if you chose a promise that had to do with the group's safety.

Optional: Distribute paper and markers or crayons and invite the children to copy and/or illustrate the promise they think is the most important. Make sure they know there is no right or wrong choice — all the promises the group generated are important. Invite participants to explain why they chose their promise as the most important.
