Bring participants together and welcome them. Invite a volunteer to light the chalice as you share a favorite children's chalice lighting used by your congregation.

Invite participants to create a list of the different kinds of bread they can think of (wheat bread, rye bread, tortillas, rice cakes, and so on). Ask each person to share their name before naming a kind of bread. If anyone is having difficulty thinking of a kind of bread to add to the list, invite others to make suggestions.
