Oct. 24th, 2018 Body of Christ Relay Materials Needed: Chairs and balloons
St. Paul calls us to be the Body of Christ. The eye cannot say to the ear, "I do not need you". Likewise, the butt cannot say to the legs, "I do not need you." Looking for a fun way to teach your group of young people about the importance of each member of the Body of Christ? Check out this high energy ice breaker. How To Play: You can start out (or end) by reading the passage from 1 Corinthians 12: 12 - 26. Break the group up into teams of 5. Have each team line up across the room for a chair. Put an unused balloon on the chair. Tell the teams that they need to choose two people to be the legs, one person to be a hand, one person to be the mouth, and one person to be the butt.
The two legs will have to pick up the hand *CAREFULLY* and run them across the room to the chair in order to pick up the balloon. Only the hands can touch the balloon. Once they grab the balloon, the legs carry the hands back to the rest of the team. The hand then holds the balloon up to the person who is the mouth so they can inflate the balloon. The hand must tie the balloon shut. The legs run the hand back to the chair and place the balloon on the chair. If the balloon falls off at any time, the legs must retrieve the hand to place the balloon back on the chair. The legs bring the hand back and pick up the butt. The legs run the butt to the balloon and have to place the butt onto the balloon. The goal is to pop the balloon before the other teams. *NOTE - after rules are explained and it’s discovered that people have to be carried the participants might want to change roles. Make sure everyone is being safe and having fun.
