Bible Game: The Body of Christ

The "Body of Christ-Game" represents our Christian lives. The hoops or teams, represent the Body of Christ, which is made up of many parts: "the teammates." The body works more effectively when the teams cooperate with one another. Teams are more likely to win by turning when it's the right time or not walking too fast, so as to make someone stumble, and by listening and communicating with one another. And even though only one team will win, this game reminds us that all of Christ’s body wins when we work together! Read on.

Kaleidoscopes: Romans 8:28

Lesson Focus: Build on the idea that our lives, at times, seem broken and useless. But – " All things work together for good for those that love the Lord" Romans 8:28. 

Share an example from your own life or someone close to you, or someone in the church who the children may know, of a situation that was seemingly tragic, but that God used to change lives for good (to bring salvation and/or grow the believer) – and ultimately to bring honor and glory to God. As you tell a story of a broken life or heart . . . Read on.

Bible Game: Please Pass the Fruit

What You Need
A Bible, a tangerine for each team, a permanent black marker for each team, and teaspoons for each player.

How To Play
Divide into teams. No more than nine players per team. Have the players read Galatians 5:22-23. Each player must choose one of the "Fruits Of The Spirit" and write it on the outside of their teams' tangerine. (If you can't find a tangerine, use an orange. A tangerine is best because it is easy to peel and has easy-to-separate sections.) Designate a large playing area. Starting at the center of your playing area, the teams will work together to reach the outside edges of the playing area. (See animated diagram of red and blue teams, below.) Player #1 at the outside ends of each team begins to pass their 'fruit' using only their spoons, no hands! When the fruit reaches the last player on the team, that player rotates to the front of the line and begins to pass the fruit as before. Players continue to pass their fruit, advancing one player at a time, until one of the teams reaches the outer edges of the playing area. The first team to reach the outer edges of the playing area is the winning team! Play as many rounds as you prefer.

Object Lesson
After the players have finished playing, have them sit down with their teams in a circle and discuss how they can show the 'Fruit of the Spirit' that they wrote on their tangerine. "Who can they show . . . read on.

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use.
