I'm thrilled to share with you some of my favorite games and activities for deepening connections and sparking joy in your next Christian women's event.

From tea parties to prayer breakfasts, these games are designed to bring laughter, bonding, and an uplifting spirit to your group.

1- Answer Fast

Quick thinking and speedy responses are the keys to success in "Answer Fast". This game encourages lively interaction and hilarious moments as guests race to list three items in as many categories as they can before time runs out.

For your Women's Ministry retreat or gathering, naturally, you want to make your categories related to Christianity or themes surrounding your event.

For example, you could choose categories such as "Biblical Women", "Fruits of the Spirit", or "Worship Songs". This not only adds a fun element to the game but also reinforces faith-based knowledge and encourages deeper discussions about these topics.

2- Act it Out

Bring the stories of the Bible to life with "Act it Out".

This charades-style game is a fantastic icebreaker, helping ladies shed any shyness and step into the shoes of biblical characters, promoting empathy, understanding, and, of course, a lot of giggles.

One person at a time will go to the front or center of the group and take a card with a Bible character or event written on it. They will then have to act out the character or scene without speaking, and the group will have to guess who or what they are.

This game can be played individually or in teams, and you can also add your own twist by having participants improvise a modern-day version of the character or story.

3- Try Not To Say

"Try Not To Say" challenges your group to avoid saying common Christian and biblical terms throughout the event.

It's a delightful way to stay mindful of our words and promises plenty of "Oops!" moments that will keep everyone on their toes.

You'll need a pack of clothespins for this game.

Here's how it works:

Each person starts with two clothespins pinned to their shirt.

If one guest catches another saying the "magic word", they take their clothespin.

Whoever has the most clothespins in their possession by the end of the event wins the game!

It's a fun way to promote connection among your women's ministry group - even if not everyone knows each other well!

4- Selfie Scavenger Hunt

Blend modern fun with fellowship in the "Selfie Scavenger Hunt". This game takes you on an adventure, capturing moments with your sisters in Christ.

It's a beautiful way to create memories and see the event through each other's eyes.

Each guest is given a set of prompts for different selfies they need to collect with their smart phone.

Prompts range from "take a selfie with something pink" to "take a selfie with two other people."

This is such a great game because it encourages everyone to mix, mingle and connect more than they would otherwise!
