In "Families," a Tapestry of Faith program
The students will create an advertising campaign to remind the congregation of the importance of families.
Engage participants in a conversation about what they think are important family functions within the congregation. Do the functions include spending family time together? Is open and honest communication important? Would it be helpful to remind families that good habits are developed at home? Simply stating that family members love each other is a warm and appreciated message during a busy, stressful day.
Divide youth into two groups. One group will design and create a poster for the hallway, while the other develops an ad for the congregation's newsletter. Invite participants who enjoy working with pictures to form one group and design a poster that holds a message for all families. Encourage this group to consider creating a poster that includes a space for interchangeable messages and can be displayed throughout the Families program.
Have participants who prefer working with the written word form the second group and create a short ad for the newsletter. It could be as simple as "Families . . . ." Invite this group to come up with a choice of phrases with which to complete the sentence. Each month the group could submit a different statement to the newsletter. Some possible examples are:
