Alternate Activity 2: Leadership in Action: Justice Sunday

Preparation for Activity

  • Invite one of the coordinators of Justice Sunday in your congregation to speak to the children and help them plan ways to participate.

Description of Activity

Children assume leadership for Justice Sunday.

If the congregation participates in Justice Sunday, have a coordinator explain to the children what it is, why it is important, and how the events your congregation has planned are examples of public witness. Work with coordinators and children to gather ideas on ways the children can help lead Justice Sunday activities. For example, children can tell a Story for Ages in worship or help host a lunch for a guest speaker. Do not be afraid to plan a contribution by the children that will be different, joyful, or fun.
