High Energy Elementary Bible Game: Avalanche (Romans 15:1-7)

This high energy elementary Bible game, Avalanche, will teach to work together to achieve a common goal.


High Energy Elementary Bible Game: Avalanche

If you have a big class, form teams of 12 or more. If you have a smaller class, everyone is on the same team. Give each group a car tire. On “go,” have each team try to get all its team members on its team’s tire and stay there for five seconds. (Don’t let teams give up!)

Afterward, give teams newsprint and a marker. Have teams each complete this sentence with as many phrases as possible and list the phrases on the newsprint: “In order to stop the avalanche of people falling off the tire, we had to…”

Some answers teams may arrive at include: “forget our initial awkwardness”; “get close to one another”; “believe it could be done”; “keep trying and not give up”; “get ideas from everyone”; “work together”; “keep making adjustments”; or “find the right balance.”

Have teams each read their list. Then ask:

  • How are the things on your lists like or unlike the things we have to do to be the kind of church God wants us to be?
  • What happens to the church if someone refuses to do one of these things?

Read aloud Romans 15:1-7 in an easy-to-understand translation. Then close in prayer, asking God to help your group live out the verses in this passage.
