Description of Activity

The Welcoming and Entering section is intended for the time before the beginning of a session when participants arrive individually over a period of time (that is, "straggle in"). Your participants may arrive together from worship.

Welcome participants as they arrive. Introduce them to the title of the program. Invite them to find their name tags, place a heart sticker on them and put them on.
