Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Wonderful Welcome: A Program for Children Grades K-1

Wonderful Welcome

© 2008, 2016

The Wonderful Welcome curriculum engages and challenges leaders and children alike to explore how and why we are willing to welcome others into our lives. We welcome not only strangers, but family, our peers, our neighbors and even entities that are not people such as our animal friends and nature itself.
