Summer Youth Camp - Persecuted?

  1. 1. Summer Youth Camp - Persecuted? Use this game as an introduction to the topic of persecution.
  2. 2. Supplies You’ll need chairs. Form a large circle with enough chairs so that everyone but one person has a place to sit. Pick one person to stand in the middle, and ask everyone else to take a seat.
  3. 3. Activity The object of the game is for the person in the middle to pick a seated person and ask him or her a question. For example, a question might be, “Are you wearing purple socks?” the response determines what the whole group will do. If the answer to the question is “yes,” everyone must get up and move two chairs in either direction. When all the kids are on the move, the middle person will have an opportunity to get into a seat
  4. 4. If the person answering the question responds “no,” he or she is required to add a second part to the question, such as “but I know some people here today didn’t brush their teeth this morning,” or “but someone here has visited Europe before.” If the second part of this statement is true about some of the seated kids, they must stand up and try to find other chairs. The person left standing without a chair is the one who must remain in the middle and ask the next ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question
  5. 5. Debrief You can end the activity by asking a person if he or she is a Christian and discuss what effect being a Christian might have on others. Do we stand out in a crowd as Christians? Will others accuse us of things? Sometimes in life we are persecuted because we are Christians. But Christ said that although we may have troubles as Christians we do not need to worry because he has overcome the world.
  6. 6. Bible Studies based on the book of Jonah Only. This youth camp curriculum was designed to teach the basic truths of obedience in addition to evangelism in the context of a Biblical character. The advantage of going through a book and looking at one man's story is that we see not only the teaching but the example. It becomes much more real! Camp Curriculum - Whale of a Tale -> Tell me about “Whale of a Tale”
  7. 7. Creative Youth Ideas Camp Bible Study Series “Who Do You Say that I AM?” -> Tell me about “Who Do You Say that I AM?” Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do others say that I am?" It was easy to answer because it required no conviction, no commitment, and no risk. But then he follows that question with another, "Who do YOU say that I am?"
  8. 8. Live the Fruitful, Abundant Life Jesus Promised. Great for youth camps or weekly Youth Bible Study. There are 7 Primary Bible study Sessions in the series. -> Tell me about “Fruit Of the Spirit” Creative Youth Ideas Youth Camp Bible Study Series “Fruit Of the Spirit”
  9. 9. "The Great Adventure" is western themed Bible study series loosely based around the song of the same name by Steven Curtis Chapman. It was initially written for a large Texas Church to use for their Summer Youth Camp but has since then proven popular around the world.
