Faith In Action: Being Greeters At Our Congregation, Session 5: The Gift Of Invitation

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

Preparation for Activity

  • Arrange with worship leaders or volunteer coordinators for the children to be ushers or greeters. Decide together what tasks the children can do.
  • If you will need to gather children at a different time or place than your usual meeting place, give parents advance notice.

Description of Activity

Give the children an opportunity to experience inviting people to your congregation. As ushers for a worship service, they can invite the people entering the sanctuary to take an order of service and a seat. At a coffee hour, the children can welcome people and invite them to take a nametag, something to eat or drink, or flyers about upcoming church activities.
