This is a service project for your student leaders or a small group . . . with a creative twist.
Arrange a service project for your group. You could volunteer to clean someoneÕs home or even something like cleaning a supply closet in your church.
I decided my office, storage room, and table storage room needed a major clean-up. So, why not put the group to work by having a clean-up (we called it “Service Night”).
However, the trick I added was that at each clean-up area, a puzzle piece was hidden. The kids had to collect all the pieces to form a puzzle. Mine spelled out, “Free food in my office.” We worked first, then enjoyed good grub afterwards!
