Summer Church Activities: 18 Fun Fellowship Ideas

11. Skater-Friendly

Entice local kids who skateboard to attend youth Bible study by building a rack to hold skateboards, which might have a Onewheel grip tape.

12. Reading Rocks

Do a reading club or weekly kids’ story hour in the church library.

13. Pedal Power

Organize a bike ride that ends at the church.

14. Creative Camp

Arrange a Christ-focused teens’ art day camp.

15. Open Leagues

Invite the community to join you for outdoor tournaments. Examples include volleyball, horseshoes, softball, bocce ball, and 3-on-3 basketball.

16. Church Campout

Plan a father and kids’ campout on the church lawn or a huge kids’ sprinkler party.

17. Frozen Treats

Youth group teens can organize a drive-through to pass out free snow cones and an invitation to Sunday worship.

18. Thrifty Idea

Hold a gigantic garage sale with proceeds going to purchase an impressive new entry sign for your town or a similar project. At the sale, play live music and distribute Bibles, church brochures and lemonade.

Summertime offers oodles of ways to impact your community for Christ. The key is to invite neighbors to join you for summer church activities and then welcome them joyfully. Publicize the events with exterior banners, personal invitations and on your church sign.

So instead of a “summer slump” this year, why not plan for a “summer rise” with these summer church activities!
