Minute-to Win It game nights are fun, also Amazing Race parties.  these can be done with whole families participating.  Lots of ideas on Pinterest for these, as well as the websites for the tv shows.  A hands-on, more reflective idea for communication might be to have everyone in the family each make a little container from clay and paint them, then join those to a larger container big enough to hold pencils and slips of paper.  When it's dry, the idea is for everyone to write a positive note and leave it in someone else's container several times a week.  JOY

My husband and I are wanting to commit to family first this year. Does anyone have any suggestions on creative and cheap events?

WE are having our first family event in Feb. on communication. I would love to have some input on any games or object lessons on communication for the family. Something fun and gets them hyped up would be great or something that gets them to think about how they do communicate within the family and how it can affect our family life. Thanks, Dava

We just held an all church 'family fun' night in City Museum, St. Louis. This is no ordinary museum, but a fun hands-on place with amazing interactive displays. Everyone had a blast, from the youngest children to even a few of our seniors. This was another community-building event that crossed generations successfully. I can't express how much fun it was to see older adults interacting in a fun environment with preschoolers and their parents!

Here to help!
Hi! Just wanted to say that I am ready to help support your ministry with my magical variety show! (videos are viewable at

The core of the show is that I incorporate the teaching points you are using with the children. This makes the show more of an educational tool for you to use.

I have performed for Children's Church sessions, in the main worship services, VBS, outreach events, revivals etc etc etc.

Please contact me with any ideas or questions. I look forward to assisting you in your ministry.

We had a church-wide scavenger hunt at the local Science Center (a hand's on museum that is FREE). Everyone had a blast, singles, families, seniors, teens -- everyone. The goal was to do something fun, building community, with an event for all ages - was great!

Our church burned 2 years ago and now we have remodeled the church and fixing to move back in in a few weeks. I really need some ideas for family night/events/games for families. I am wanting our family to reconnect together, as a whole and as individual families. Any ideas would be appreciated. How to begin the event? What to do? Activities?

We have family movie nights about once per quarter. This past weekend we previewed the new Veggie Tale movie and made it a "sit in" movie where families brought lawn chairs and blankets to sit on. We poppd popcorn and had hot dogs and cotton candy. It is just a great time for families to come together and fellowship with one another and with other families.

I just started this group because I am needing some input and hope people join! I think getting families together helps increase community within the church as well as helps families to learn better at how to engage with their children spiritually.
