Activity 5: Final Planning for the Interfaith Service Event

Activity time: 15 minutes

Materials for Activity

  • Newsprint, markers, and tape

Preparation for Activity

  • Review the time frame for the service event.
  • Optional: Post newsprint.

Description of Activity

Participants address any last-minute needs in service event planning.

Make sure everyone understand their remaining roles and responsibilities. Use this time to go through an agenda for the interfaith service day together, double-checking times and responsibilities. You might also go through the program Introduction's Service Event Planning guidance again found in Before You Start, to ensure you have taken care of everything necessary.

You might write out the agenda for the day on the posted newsprint. Review your agenda and needs together, then use remaining time to discuss any issues regarding the service event. For example: Is there confusion about how many people are coming from other religious communities? Do you need to re-confirm with a partner organization that is hosting the service event? Are the food and service plans still appropriate for anticipated weather? If you identify new needs, make sure to assign each task to one specific person and obtain that person's phone and email information so you can follow up and ensure the task has been accomplished.
