A Few of My Favorite Things Icebreaker (Free Printable)

I was brainstorming recently with a friend about ways she could break the ice with her new team at work. Her team is quite small. I knew the 4 C’s icebreaker game would be a great one for her to use!

Summer Table Talk Cards

Have you ever sat at a table with a group of people and felt the conversation at the table stall after you all got past the normal niceties? (What do you do? How many kids do you have?)

Why I Don’t Do Bible Games

I opened up Pinterest recently and groaned when I saw the “Bible games” in my feed. I know you’ve seen them – Bible Jeopardy, Bible Trivia, Match the Bible Couples, etc. “Bible games” are great for people who know the Bible. Who’ve had a chance to finish every lesson and attend every small group session. My problem is this -  “Bible games” make those we want to reach run in the opposite direction. The very people we want to reach, … [Read more...]

Take Flight Icebreaker

I recently returned from a women’s ministry retreat with another church. This icebreaker is one that was shared during our time together. Admittedly, it’s one I would have over-looked if I had seen it online. I would have thought it was going to be lame. With a capital L. It wasn’t!! We had a group of about 40 women and this was a great way for us to quickly find out something unique about one another. Our chocolate-lovers … [Read more...]

10 Things Icebreakers Should Not Do

My love for icebreakers has never been a secret. I even recently shared Why Women's Ministry Events Need Great Icebreakers. Here's the thing though, not all icebreakers are great. Not all icebreakers are fun. Some even make the participants feel stupid. I was at an event a while back and we played several individual icebreaker games - the winners each received a door prize. One particular game ruffled my feathers. We were … [Read more...]
