Christian Team Building Activities, Games, and Ideas for Fun

Christianity promotes unity and hence team building is an essential activity of the church. To foster unity and enhance the values taught by the religion in the congregation, some Christian team building activities for adults can be organized by the church. Such activities will also help develop leadership skills, reinforce social commitments and co-operation amongst the church goers. To develop the activities for building a team of church goers, the Bible is undoubtedly the best source. It contains numerous sermons on the importance unity and teamwork hold, in building a strong human race. So before embarking on devising activities for adult church goers, consult the Holy Scriptures thoroughly. 1. Hunt a Bible Verse: Based on the game of Treasure Hunt, this game is a great team builder that will renew interest in the Bible amongst your congregation. Get the people into groups of three to five members. Give a Bible and a list of clues for a verse in it, to each group. Some of the clues could be easy pointers to the verse. Each group should hand in their list of verses within the stipulated time. 2. Do as Jesus would do: Divide the people into groups as in the previous game. Here you will need a few facilitators. They will depict a scene or situation to each group separately. One member from the group will react to...

The Apocalypse

Revelation 6: 2-6: 8.I will bring thee down, saith the LORD. Revelation: Something disclosed, especially something not previously known or realized: disclosure, exposé, exposure, and revelation. Apocalyptic eschatology is marked by the conviction that God will intervene decisively in the present evil age and vindicate his suffering over their oppressors, raising the dead, consigning the wicked to eternal destruction, and establishing a new creation. In the Bible, apocalyptic elements are present in the books of Ezekiel, Isaiah, Joel, Zechariah, and Daniel. The collection known as the Pseudepigrapha [1. Spurious writings, especially writings falsely attributed to biblical characters or times. 2. A body of texts written between 200 bc and ad 200 and spuriously ascribed to various prophecies and kings of Hebrew Scriptures.

Why Stress Is Not Necessary

We are not designed for long term stress. It causes us physical damage. Coping mechanisms disguise the problem, they do not solve it. If you broke a leg would you develop a coping strategy to continue to live with the broken leg, or would you get the leg repaired. Stress A good day can sometimes be characterized by an event that occurred. An order that was won or a singular success that has put everyone on a high. But life is not about singular successes. We do not get married because there was one single event that turned into love, we do not support our football team because of one goal that they scored. The quality of our lives, the way we feel about ourselves is about an ongoing repeating series of small events. If these events are positive then we will feel good. If the sum of these events is negative then we start to feel bad. The human body is a remarkable thing that is designed in all circumstances to protect itself. When we become stressed the body has an automatic reaction to defend itself. The reason is that the part of the brain that deals with logical thought shuts down. This allows all of the processing power to concentrate on one of two very simple operations. Fight or Flight. If this processing power computes that your...

It Pays to Pay!

So many children in Minnesota go day after day without their basic needs being adequately met. This truly is a crime. When a Non-Custodial parent fails to pay their court ordered support they fail to abide by the law, as well as do their share to assist in financially supporting their children. It is a crime to allow children to be disbursed financially. Furthermore, a slap on the wrist of the offender is an insult to our law abiding parents. Minnesota legislatorsought to do something to change this. Recent legislation has been passed in Minnesota that dramatically affects the current child support system. In 1994 Congress determined that a lack of uniformity in the laws relating to child support orders encouraged non-custodial parents to relocate to other states to avoid the jurisdiction of the court of the home state. In an attempt to counteract this problem, Congress enacted Public Law 103-383, also known as the Full Faith & Credit for Child Support Orders Act (28 US Child Support § 1738B (1994). While Congress made changes in 1994, Minnesota legislators were busy at work making changes that went into effect January 1, 2007, but slotted for modification orders not to go into effect until January 1, 2008. These dates are extremely important if you are seeking changes to your current orders. Here are what some of the changes address: 1.The...
