Preparation for Activity

  • Together with your co-leaders and religious educator, determine which leadership roles and tasks to include (see Leader Resource 1 for ideas).

Description of Activity

Sharing in leadership roles empowers children as partners in their group. In future sessions, the Leadership Chart and role assignments will be part of the Opening.

Gather the group in a circle. Indicate the Leadership Chart and tell the children they will take turns being leaders. Briefly describe the roles and tasks. Assign jobs randomly or by soliciting volunteers. Explain that each time you meet, the jobs will change. Anyone who did not get a job today will have one during another session.
