This week we had great nights for both Porch and Edge. There was great energy both nights and it seemed like students are really getting into our current series through the book of Jonah. Below is more details about what we did this week at Porch and Edge.
What We Did at Porch (High School)
Game: Reverse Charades. Classis charades with a twist. Instead of a group of people guessing what one person is doing, one student has to guess what their team is acting out. You break your group into two teams (or more if you want) and have them send one person on stage. The person they send to the stage must stand with their back to the screen and be facing their team. You throw something up on the screen and the teams must starting acting it out. The person on the stage has to guess what they are doing. There are a ton of different versions of this game. YouthMin.org has some good ones I’d encourage you to check out. Click the link above to download and use the PowerPoint version of this game I threw together myself. Feel free to edit it and put in your own things.
Worship Set List: Relentless (Hillsong United), In Tenderness (Citizens & Saints), Made Alive (Citizens & Saints), Take The World But Give Me Jesus (Ascend the Hill).
Teaching: We continued our current series called “Jonah.” This week we looked at Jonah’s prayer from Jonah 2 and saw that Jonah accepted God’s discipline and turned back to God after running from Him.
Highlight: One of the actions we put in Reverse Charades was “Giving Birth.” It was hilarious to watch a bunch of high school guys try and do that charade. It was classic!
What We Did at Edge (Middle School)
Upfront Game: One Direction or Grizzly Bear. Great upfront game from Download Youth Ministry.
Group Game: Extreme Bucketball. This was a new game for us. It’s basically a mix between basketball and ultimate frisbee. Click the link to read more about how this game works and grab the graphic for the game.
Teaching: Same as Porch. We continued our Jonah series by looking at Jonah’s prayer from Jonah 2.
Highlight: It was our second night in a row of having more than 100 students in attendance!
