Host and Easter EGGstravaganza!

Folks have asked me to describe the Family Show we do before our Easter Egg Hunts, so I’m providing some files and a video walk through to help describe what you we do. The EGGstravaganza Show is a high-energy interactive game show experience that will involve both selected volunteers from the audience, as well as full audience participation elements. The theme is “That’s Impossible” as participants attempt to do impossible feats! At the end, they will learn that the Bible says (twice), “…with man this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible!” They will learn that Easter is about the Ultimate Impossible Feat: Jesus, who raised Himself from the dead! We all face challenges in life – you may be facing something right now that seems impossible – but with God, the impossible can happen! THAT is the true meaning of Easter – we have a risen Savior who can do the IMPOSSIBLE: save us from our sins and help us be victorious in life! Pre-Show walk through: Post-Event highlight video: The games I either bought on Amazon.com, have owned for years or found the items around the church. The key is big and fun. The TP Bazooka…

The Secret to Discipling Kids!

In a media saturated world, where kids are juggling content as much as adults, and where kids often don’t live in the same place for their entire childhood, how do you make sure YOUR kids know the basics of the Christian Faith? The “secret” isn’t really a secret, it is just not done intentionally often enough – The secret is simply discipleship. Jesus discipled. And when He left, he commanded us to disciple other, teaching them “everything He commanded” in addition to sharing the Gospel and baptizing. What is Discipleship? It is an intentional process of guiding another person through the basics of the Christian Faith. Introducing MY AWESOME ADVENTURE! My Awesome Adventure is a dynamic follow-up resource for new Christians or an introduction to the Christian faith for kids who are not yet familiar with Christ. Children, parents, and teachers will love this introduction to the basics of following Jesus. Teach children, ages 9-12, the essentials of being fully committed followers of Jesus Christ. My Awesome Adventure can be used for self-study, with a mentor, or in a classroom. Introduce your children to Pastor Karl, the Kidologist, who will take them on an exciting hike through the natural wonders…

Head, Shoulders, Knees and CUP! FUN Youth Group Game

Last night in youth group, our Youth Intern, Josh, introduced a super fun game! I have no idea where he got it, or if he made it up – but it was a blast! It is an elimination game! Kids pair up head to head, if an odd number, either grab a leader or that student waits until the next round. The students face off with a plastic cup on the ground between them, placed upside down. The leader calls out body parts and the players have move their hands to that spot – head, knees, toes, eyes, nose, etc. BUT when they say “CUP!” the pair each try to grab the cup. If they grab it, they remain in the game. The other player is “out” for the rest of the round. ALSO – if a student touches the cup when “CUP” was not called, they are immediately out! So they need to listen carefully and the leader attempts to trick them into lunging toward to the cup! Here is a quick video of the game in action! HAVE FUN! (and have lots of cups on hand!)
