“hearts on fire” scavenger hunt

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galations 6:2 was the theme for the evening and there was a great turnout for the “Hearts on Fire” scavenger hunt. Everyone met at church, received t-shirts, were assigned their teams, and away they went to solve clues to figure out where they were supposed to go for the next clue.

At each home they visited, as well as at the church, they were given tasks to do, from playing simple party games, to reciting the Ten Commandments, to singing songs for their hosts.

Task? Climb into the gym and sing “Jesus Loves Me.” 🙂

Task? Make tinfoil animals for Noah’s ark.

One of the tasks that allowed for lots of creativity was “Build-a-Bob.” Given paper, markers, crayons, etc., they chose a slip of paper that gave them the name of the “Bob” they were to design. The headshots are of Pastor Bob, BTW. 🙂

    The jr hi-high school girls have had a couple of scavenger hunts during overnights where they get hints in envelopes to figure out where they go, then are given “good deeds” to do for 15-30 min there. Then another clue sends them on their way. One group may go to the church and mix up cookies. Another comes and bakes them. A third cleans up and delivers cookies to mom’s with young kids, etc. They love it.
