This is a game our youth group played last week. During our Bible time we were looking at the Book of Revelation and what will happen at the end of the world. We created this game to tie into that theme, as well as some post apocalypse scenarios.
Game: Post Apocalypse Survival
Number of players: 9+
Time: 15 minutes
Resources: Paper with printed items
Space: Hall or oval
This term at our senior youth group, we’re looking at the parables in the Gospel of Luke. We kicked off with the Parable of the Sower from Luke 8:4-15. To get the youth members in the right frame of mind (as well as to burn off a bit of energy) we played a game based on the parable. It’s a variation on “Rob The Nest”. It might be a game that you might want to play with your youth as well.
The internet is a very big place. People from all over the world are connected through their internet connection. Personally, I have made friends through the internet, friends that I may never have met in real life, both here in Sydney and overseas. As Christians, I believe we have a responsibility to harness tools such as the internet for the Kingdom.
And that’s just what The Timothy Strategy is doing. Using our connection to the world wide web to pray for each other.
This weekend I’ll be up at KYCK, which is a huge conference for Christian teenagers. It’s always a great weekend to open up the Word of God with the teenagers at Church and experience what it’s like to share that joy with thousands of other teens.
For KYCK 09 I’ll be bringing along my video camera and doing some filming for Fervr. I’ll be interviewing some youth groups and getting a vibe for the weekend as a whole.
Is there anything you would like to see in the vodcast? I can’t make any promises, but I can do my best.
Fervr is a social networking site for Christian youth and their leaders. Youth groups can start up their own pages where members can find out what’s happening and communicate with each other. It’s also a great place to find articles about youth ministry and articles that are especially written for Christian youth.
I’ve been asked to be one of the contributors to the site. My first article went up today. Check out the site and see what you think.
