Description of Activity

Participants coordinate and present a chapel service.

If your congregation offers children's chapel, invite the group to refine the worship service designed in the session and offer it as children's chapel.

Afterward, thank the group for participating in the chapel. Remind them that taking part in worship is one way to be a leader in the congregation and demonstrate their UU faith.
