Last night, the auditorium was transformed into a game show called “Family Scene It.” We were joined by special guest hosts: Wacky Wanda and Candace. Three lucky families were selected as contestants and competed by answering a series of questions after watching movie clips that depicted the Easter Story. We also heard from multiple eye witnesses who really had, “seen it” including Mary Magdalene, Peter, Thomas, Mary the Mother of Jesus, and another Disciple. Together, we learned the truth of John 20:29:
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.
Next, families gathered in classrooms to play “Minute to Believe It.” Participants rotated between fun, crazy challenges and discussion questions that reviewed what they learned during large group. Marshmallows were picked up with chopsticks, Q-Tips were shot through straws, and cookies were placed on faces and consumed without the use of hands. Check out a few of our contestants in action.
The night ended with desserts and an opportunity to continue the fun at home with our family devotional game: “Spin It to Live It.” We have extra copies of the game available this Sunday at The Crossing Kids registration area. Be sure to pick one up if you weren’t able to make it on Friday.
