Dating games for youth ministry
Buy one frozen turkey per team (keep the turkeys frozen until service). The goal is to see how many objects you can pass around the circle.
Then team members take turns using the turkey like a bowling ball to knock down the soda. The other person has to hold the pole so that the person laying on the floor can try to eat the donut without using his or her hands. (It’s really harder than it sounds.)Using a van or opaque shower curtain, lay down two bedsheets on each side of whatever his hanging in the center as the “net.” You should not be able to see through the “net.” Have each team sit on their bedsheets with their water balloons. Toilet paper, saran wrap, and tin foil are used to make sculptures out of one person per team.
These games are fun for larger groups and teams, and they are sloppy, slippery, outrageous fun. Then have the students to line up to do some limbo. He then takes the marble and turns to the next person and starts the pattern.
It's a great way to engage students, and when they choose a youth group they'll want a little fun mixed in with the serious side of building up their faith. If you feel like the floor is too hard, do this activity outside or lay some mats under the tarp. As the marble goes around, you start on the next object and the next object.
Youll need two male and two female actors, as well as six bible verse readers.

5For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Girl: Yeah, sometimes I think they may just love me to death, if you know what I mean. Do you think we could meet at youth group and just talk a little. Guy: Maybe you could introduce me to your folks so they could get to know me. Ill ask my folks if you could come over for dinner or something. Break up into small cells of 4-6 if possible and open in prayer for the Lords guidance and wisdom.
Note, though, that many of these games are messy and will require that you use tarps and ways for your students to clean up afterward. While this is an excellent idea for Thanksgiving, it is still fun year-round. Take ten bottles of soda (still full), and lay them out in a bowling pin pattern. Eventually there will be a lot of these conversations going on at once.
Take some dishwashing detergent and spray it down on the tarp.
2For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. I mean, I was thinking of asking you to go out with me.
