Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Heeding the Call: A Program on Justicemaking for Junior High School Youth

Faith In Action: Abundance Fair

Preparation for Activity

  • Be prepared to help youth publicize this event. Know the deadlines for congregational publicity, including (but not limited to) monthly newsletter, all church emails, announcements in the order of service and/or during the service.

Description of Activity

Youth coordinate an Abundance Fair for their congregation.

Invite congregants (including children and youth) to bring what they have to share (their abundance). Have tables set up and invite the congregation to put these extras to good use. What about sports equipment that is no longer used? What about extra blankets? Extra garden produce? Board games? Toys? Partner with a local social service organization to be the recipient of whatever is left.
