4 Church Activities to Spread the Word

word of godChurches have discovered that the best way to spread the word of God is to do so through activities which are fun and educating. The same approach is used in schools to help students understand the message and continue to return again and again. As a pillar in the community, the church should focus on bringing people in and sharing the good word with them. The best way to achieve this is with family friendly church activities that offer food, fun and entertainment for a few hours. Here are six ideas for your church to get the ball rolling.

All-Nighter – The Word of Life Superbowl is one of the most popular religious events in the United States. Each year thousands of people attend these all night events that include concerts, fellowship, athletic events, food and fun. And each year the founders of the event are proud of the mass number of people who turn their hearts to the Lord and find his salvation. Check with the organization to find an event near you. Church coordinators then invite parents and youth to partake in the event. You can rent a bus or have multiple volunteer drivers that chaperone the children for the event. It truly is a night to remember.

Family Movie Night – The recreation center of any church is perfect for a family movie night. Choose a Christian favorite that will spread the word for you. Ask for a small donation of $1 to $5 to help offset the cost of food. Use a movie projector to display the film on a wall if you do not have a large projection screen. Offer plenty of free food and beverages for your attendees. You should always start the night with fellowship. For an extra edge, allow the fellowship to be led by some of the youth in your ministry.

Bicycle Treasure Hunt – Put bible knowledge to the test with a Bicycle Treasure Hunt. This activities is fairly simple. Choose a part of town where there are several church going families. Everyone starts at one point and follows clues to get to the next location. You can make it interesting by having each person who has the clue hand out a puzzle piece. When all pieces of the puzzle are collected, it must be put together. The first team to complete the puzzle will win a prize. This is a great event that brings the community together.

Concert and Game Night – Christian music today is designed to be catchy and desirable to listen to. This is why many popular Christian songs start to appear on secular radio stations. The best part about religious groups is that they are rarely hung up on only performing to large venues. Christian musicians want to spread the word of God to each and every person through their music. Invite your favorite group to perform at your church and invite the community. You can start the night with games to allow the guests to mingle with each other and get to know the word of God and the musical act for the night.

4 Ways Religion is Like Fitness

religion and fitnessHave you ever met someone who just doesn’t “get” your walk with God? There are plenty of nay-sayers in this world which can make it difficult for you to focus on spreading the good word and surrounding yourself with the right people. Sometimes a good analogy is all it takes for people to understand your faith in the unseen. As the world becomes more fitness obsessed you can use that as your leverage to help others understand your relationship with God and your religion. Here are four ways that religion is like fitness.

You Are Dedicated to Your Health

Your spiritual health is just as important as your physical health. While exercise works your body, the bible works your brain. Both work your heart. As a Christian, you exercise by studying the word of God and sharing it with others. You take the lessons that are learned and apply them to your life. This yields better spiritual health.

You Believe in Results You Can See

If you go to the gym day in and day out and do not see results, will you keep doing that same exercise routine? No. Fitness lovers believe in the results they can see. The good news is, as a lover of your faith and religion – you do the same. Sure, your results can’t be seen in the mirror but they can be felt – and that is just as important. Think about how your faith makes you feel and share that experience with others. Your heart feels full. You have peace of mind. You do not sweat the small stuff. This is all examples of the results of religion you can see.

Your Faith Gives You Muscle

What better feeling is there than knowing you can accomplish anything with God by your side. Just the way creatine equals more muscle, the bible give you the muscle you need to conquer anything. When you give your testimonial, be sure to mention how your faith has changed the way you live. It gives you the muscle and power to overcome the hardships and allows you to believe that there are better days on the horizon.

You Like to Keep it Fun

Variety in a workout is just as important as variety in your faith. You know that going to church on Sunday, only, is not enough to keep you motivated. During the week you enjoy bible study, game nights with your Christian friends and even other events such as cookouts, music nights or general fellowship. All of these are great ways to keep your faith fun and the focal point in you life. Share the wealth with your friends by inviting them to an indoor soccer match at your church or other fitness-centered event that shows just how fun a relationship with God can be.

If all else fails, simply live your life and walk with God. Those who notice your flame will want to join you. Only then will they understand how your walk with god truly benefits your life and helps you to live it to the fullest.
