12 Indoor Faith Games for Children’s Ministry
1. Together Again
Form groups of four, and have kids take off their shoes. Have groups each create the outline of a box on the floor, using their shoes.
Say: Now all four of you must stand in your shoe box for three minutes, but you can’t help one another. You’re on your own.
After three minutes, ask: How easy or difficult was that?
Say: Let’s try the challenge again for three minutes, but this time you can help one another stay in the box.
Ask: How did helping one another compare to not helping one another? Have you ever experienced a time you needed friends’ support? Tell your group about that time.
Read aloud Galatians 6:2.
Say: The Bible says that we need each other. There are times we’re weak and we need each other to help carry our burdens. What kinds of burdens do kids your age have? How can you help your friends carry their burdens?
Say: A great way to help one another carry our burdens is to pray for one another. Find a partner, then write your partner’s burden on your shoe. Then let’s pray for one another and help carry one another’s burdens.
