1 GAME: Simon Says

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. The Game Zone Leader will be “Simon” in a game of Simon Says.
  2. Have the Players face “Simon.”
  3. Tell the Players that the commands will be given in two different ways, either beginning by saying “Simon Says” and then stating the command or simply stating the command.
  4. Explain that the Players should only follow commands that begin with “Simon Says.” If they do the wrong action or act after a command they should not follow, they are out and must sit down for the remainder of the round.
  5. The last Player standing wins.
  6. Play several rounds as time allows.

3 LIFE CONNECTIONS

  Game / Bible / Life Connection:    

Memory Verse:   Jesus answered, “The most important is, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”  Mark 12:29-31

Leader, ask God to connect to the children’s minds, the children’s hearts, and in the prayer to connect to the children’s soul.
