Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Windows and Mirrors: A Program about Diversity for Grades 4-5

Leader Resource 1: Guide for Adult Guests

Adapt and distribute to parents at least two weeks before leading this session.


Thank you for agreeing to share your thoughts about being part of this congregation. We want the children to hear about why people come to this church and what it means to them that children are part of the congregation.

Each adult participant will have about four minutes to share their thoughts with the group. Please prepare by thinking about how you will answer these questions:

  • Why do you come to church?
  • What one word best describes your congregational attachment?
  • Is there a location in the church that is particularly meaningful to you or where you will feel most comfortable talking to the children?
  • Why is the presence of children at church important to you personally?
