In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants attend an Evangelical Christian worship service and process the experience.
Gather beforehand to be sure youth are properly dressed and to review courteous behavior guidelines. Remind the youth that the church members are generously sharing their faith with us and that you expect the youth to demonstrate respect for the worshippers, their beliefs, and their practices. If appropriate, distribute Bibles; explain that the youth may wish to use a Bible during the service when other worshippers do.
After the service, ask participants for their immediate responses. What was the experience like for them? How did it compare with engagements with other faiths? Continue discussion with these questions:
Share the information you have gathered about the church's programs other than worship. What can the youth learn about this faith community from its additional offerings?
Thank the youth for their participation.
