Because there are so many ‘characters’ in this game, it is very theme-able. The old west, aliens, sea creatures, dinosours, food chain – whatever you can come up with. For this explaination I’m going to use the good ol’ food chain theme.
Teens love this fast-paced, high-energy wide game. What teen doesn’t like trying to take over the world? The games are usually fairly quick – between 10 to 20 minutes – and work great for groups of about 50 to 100, but it could be adapted for smaller groups too.
This is a study that looks at Proverbs 5 to see why we so often give into temptation and how we should deal with temptation. It could be done as a small group Bible study or as a devotional for a larger group.
There have been many great Bible studies, many excellent object lessons, many fabulous sermon, and many thought-provoking devotionals that have great content, but they don’t accomplish anything. Why? Because they lack a quality application. What good is a Bible study on sharing the Gospel with your friends if, after you leave the building, you don’t do anything different? If a Bible study/sermon/devotional/object lesson doesn’t cause any change – it’s useless. Good application is key.
This is a fairly short Bible study that focuses on Proverbs 4:23 – “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”
This is a simple, relatively short game that requires only some popcorn kernels. It can work good as an ice-breaker as it requires one-on-one interaction. Everyone starts the game with ten popcorn kernels in their left hand. Each person secretly chooses any number of kernels from this left hand and puts them in his right. He then approaches any other person and challenges them, asking “Odd or even?” The other person must then guess whether the number of kernels in his right hand is an odd number or an even number.
