Today I want to keep it simple. Here are 5 ideas you can implement to make your youth event amazing.
Don’t just sing about – hearts, souls, passions – burning. Actually set some stuff on fire! It will not only be visually appealing, and memorable, it will also heat the church. Let’s be realistic here, with the winter we’re having, I can’t think of a church council that wouldn’t be in favor of an event that brings the church heating bill down a bit.
Laser Tag… NOW WITH REAL LASERS!
Put away those plastic toys and get your hands on some military-grade laser guns. No sacrifice, no victory! It’s a memorable event and a sermon illustration smashed into a brightly wrapped package of energy. You’re welcome!
In-Door Trampoline Park.
Nothing says Blues Brothers church like a trampoline park in the sanctuary. We are Foursquare, we are Pentecostal. Get on it!
My group loves to play Lightning (AKA, KnockOut, BumpOut, Bump, etc.). You can really ramp up a game of Lightning while playing basketball, outside, during a level 4 thunderstorm.
“There’s a tree blowing across the court!!!”
“There sure is! And you’re out! HA!!!”
Have a long weekend coming up? Great! Take the classic Lock-In idea and multiply it for maximum awesomeness. 72 hours of no sleep, junk food, and exhausted teens. As Paul Hogan would say, “That’s not a lock-in, THIS is a Lock-In!”
