Each year we conduct a messy outdoor event involving as many messy events as we can come up with (several come from The SourceÕs “sick and twisted” games page). The point is that we make a mess outside. Games like Lemonade Machine, Chocolate Drop, Balloon Shaving, Egg Toss, etc. We present a message on the effect sin has on your life and the mess it makes. The entire event is outside to attract passers-by; usually there are quite a few and we present the Gospel as the answer for cleaning up their lives.
After we present the Gospel and give them time to respond we spray everyone down with a hose and clean them up.
