Fun Event & Activity Ideas
Have your congregation donate new 9-volt batteries to your youth group for a few weeks. Then, hand them out (or install them yourselves), in Jesus' name, in your neighborhood surrounding the church building. The batteries are for their smoke-detectors...take along a clipboard, paper, and a pen to take down the neighbor's prayer requests...plenty of ministry to be had by all!!!
The reason this worked was because we didn't do the expected-try to convert people. We just met a need (batteries in smoke detectors) and offered to pray for them.
The neighbors were shocked... (NO PUN INTENDED)...They really couldn't believe it. The youth were really charged...(I did it again...) to show GOD's love so practically!
