You have to make sure you have volunteers help with this. We played inside the church but if it were summer we could have used outside space also.
We broke the youth up into 6 teams and gave all a wall in the church to call their “base”. Each team then had to go to the 6-7 stations (I thought is was helpful to have at least one station per team). Then I explained to all the kids that the entire night was centered around helping. They then had to go to each “place” and help the person there. I had a baker in the kitchen that needed help making 6 dozen cookies, a farmer that needed more scarecrows and a homeless person that needed warm clothes for winter (we had them hidden throughout the church). We had the old lady that swallowed a spider there and she needed help choosing what kind of candy bars to eat (taste testing). We also had the “maintenance department” that needed help with a few things. The other station we had was that Pastor and he needed help finding some verses.
Then after the kids helped each person, the person they helped gave them a slip of paper which had part of a verse on it. Once they had help all six people they had to put the verse together. The first team done was the winner!
One side note: All the verses used in the activity were from the Romans Road, which gave Pastor a great opportunity to share the gospel at the end of the night. We even got to see SEVEN kids come to know Christ as their Savior.Read more
