Wednesday Reflections – Game Night

Filed under: Summer,Wednesday Nights,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 8:43 pm

For the summer we are taking a break from youth worship services.  Tonight, we did a game night in the gym.  We played 2 relay style games & 2 dodge ball type games.

  • Crowd – seemed to be up a little from the past 2 weeks; not sure if it was due to the activity or just teens settling into their summer schedule
  • Participation – anytime you do games you always worry about teens who don’t want to participate.  We had a few tonight, but the vast majority were excited.
  • What I’d do differently next time – meet w/ college students prior to the event to go over the rules w/ them; assign teams as they enter the building;
  • Was it a success? The true measure is if the night ends & they are still wanting to keep playing.  That was the case tonight – so I guess that means it was a success

Overall, I felt it was a good night.  Next week is VBS week & most of the group has volunteered to help.  So, we’ll be taking it easy.  It’ll be a video of some sort, board games, snacks & drinks.
