Preteen Bible Game: Reaching for Hearts (Mark 16:15; Romans 1:16)

Use this game to teach kids how important it is to support each other as Christians trying to spread the good news about Jesus and reach other’s hearts.


You’ll need:

  • candy bars and
  • clear packing tape.

Preteen Bible Game: Reaching for Hearts

Before kids arrive, tape candy bars onto the wall high enough so kids can’t reach them without standing on chairs.

Tell kids the object of the game is to reach the candy bars without the help of furniture or other people. Let kids try to grab the candy bars. Once they’ve given up, have them form groups of three and work together to reach the candy bars. Two kids can form a step by locking their hands together and lifting the third person high enough to reach a candy bar for all three.

Ask kids to compare their first attempt to reach the candy bars with their second. Ask:

  • What ways do you tell your friends about your faith?
  • Why is it important to work together and support each other as Christians?
  • How can you support a friend this week?

Read Mark 16:15 and Romans 1:16 and close in prayer.
