TUESDAY, 10/2

Opening Game: Angry Penguins

Divide the group into teams of 4-6 and have them link arms. One player on the team faces inside the circle, the other players face outside the circle. In the middle of the team on the floor by their feet is a balloon. AKA the “penguin egg”. The object is to pop the balloons of other teams using only your feet, while also protecting your own balloon from being popped. They also must keep their arms linked. Your balloon does not have to stay in your team’s circle (but it is safer there). Once a team’s balloon is popped, they’re out. Last team standing wins.

 

House Rules: Week 4

HOUSE RULE #4: BRING OTHERS WITH US

 

QUESTION: WHO AM I WILLING TO BRING WITH ME?

 

GOD REACHES OUT TO YOU

 

John 6:44

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them.

 

Luke 19:10

The Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

 

GOD REACHES OUT THROUGH YOU

 

John 15:16

You did not choose Me, but I chose you.  I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit.

 

THE PHRASE “BRING OTHERS” INCLUDES EVERYONE

 

1 Timothy 2:5-6

There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.

 

2 Peter 3:9

The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.
