Everyone gets to play, but everyone also gets left out in this ultimate keep-away Bible game for preteens and elementary-aged kids.
“May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.” Romans 15:5-7

Elementary and Preteen Game: Ultimate Keep-Away
Form teams of six. In this game, teams pass their balls without letting another team steal their players. Kids can run, stand, or jump as they pass the balls among their team members without getting tagged by someone from another team. If a child gets tagged while holding the ball, he or she joins the other team. The goal is to be the team with the most people at the end.
Read aloud the Scripture.
