Turn the classic game of charades into a funtastic biblical game. Before the game write clues on individual slips of paper that have a biblical theme. Clue ideas could be:
Fold all the clues and place them in a hat or something similar. Have one person draw a clue and act it out without talking. Whoever guesses the clue correctly first gets to choose the next clue and act it out. You can also play this game in teams. Having one person from the team act out a clue, their team has two minutes to guess it. If they cannot guess correctly then the next team has a chance to steal the points by making one final guess. Stealing points will not count as that teams turn. Take turns alternating between teams.
Divide group into teams. Have the team’s line up on one side of the playing area and have a table with a bible for each team sitting on the other side of the playing area. Provide each team a list of verses. The list should include at least one verse for each player and an equal amount of verses on every list. Example Verse:
Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I [am] the Lord. Leviticus 19:18
The first player on each team will look at the first verse on the list and race to find it in the bible. When they find it they must rush back to their team and write the page number where it was found next to the verse on their team’s sheet. Then the next person takes their turn continuing with the next verse on the list. The first team that finishes their list is declared the winners.
Make sure you look up all the verse page numbers beforehand, so that you can verify the winner. If you would like to play a non competitive version simply do not have separate teams. Play a few rounds as one big team and see if the team can beat the best time.
Before inflating balloons place slips of paper in each of them with fun biblical questions. These can be trivia, or moral “what would you do” type questions, or perhaps fill in the blank bible verses. I suggest preparing at least as many balloons as there are players, the more the better. Number each balloon with a marker and write the numbers on individual slips of paper.
TO PLAY: Turn on some fun music and let the group bop the balloons around trying to keep them in the air. When the music stops, everyone must try and grab a balloon. Draw a number and whoever is holding that balloon must pop it and answer the challenge question inside. If a person is called who already answered a challenge question, then they have the choice to pass their balloon to another of their choosing.
This is a fun obstacle course game that involves blindfolds and trust. You’ll need to set up a simple obstacle course using safe objects like cushions, boxes, and soft plastic cones. Divide players into pairs and have one person from each team blindfolded.
They must make it through the obstacle course guided only by their partner’s voice. After they finish they switch places with their partner and become the leader. You can place a bible at the end of the obstacle course. When they reach the bible they can remove their blindfold. This is symbolic for God opening your eyes when you follow his word.
The trivia game that's heaven to play. Fresh, new game play encourages positive thinking about the Bible's teachings, and includes 100 children's questions, making it easier for all age groups to play together! Answer a question correctly and move ahead. If you land on a Judgement space, you may trade places, challenge other players, and more!
This is such a fun church party idea. Divide group into teams, and provide each team with a bible and a list of clues. The clues are bible verses with a word missing from them. If a group does not know what the missing word is they can look the word up in their bible. Clues do not have to be the actual object, for example say the clue is:
Exodus 8:6 So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the _______s came up and covered the land.
The answer is frog. The group does not have to collect an actual frog. They can find a picture of a frog or even a toy frog. They CANNOT however draw a picture of the frog themselves. It must be something that they find.
Give the teams a certain period of time, say an hour or two. This game is great to play in places with a lot of resources. This is also a great Christian game to play with teens at the mall. They are allowed to take pictures of the item with their camera!
TIP: to find clues try Biblegateway.com It has a useful search tool where you can put a word in and they will show you the bible verses that contain that word. Perfect for finding fun clues.

This is a hilarious game that will take people that are good sports to play. Purchase a few bags of Swedish fish and put eight fish in the bottom of every pie tin. You’ll need a pie tin for every player. Cover the Swedish fish with whipped cream. On the start of go all contestants must place their hands behind their backs and retrieve each fish with their mouths (one at a time). Award prizes for the first one finished or play just for fun.
This may sound like just a funny game, but it has symbolic meaning. Jesus was a fisher of man. There were many people that did not like the truths that he spoke, but he continued spreading the word. He was not afraid to get a little “pie in his face” while he fished for men and shared the will of his father.
