A Word for Monday – Games

The word for game in Slovak is simple – hra (pronounced “hrah”).

One of the things we love about our boys’ and girls’ discipleship groups is the many games we get to play.  Sometimes we play games just for fun, but more often we play games with some kind of spiritual point or emphasis.

The past couple of meetings with our groups have included games with toilet paper – toaletný papier (toe-ah-let-knee pop-ee-err).  Tanya’s group was talking about the story of Jesus changing water into wine – which took place at a wedding – svadba (svahd-bah).  So as an introduction, they created a wedding dress from toilet paper!

This past weekend, Jon’s boys group wrapped up as mummies – múmie (moo-me-eh).  Mummies are real, of course… but the “monster” mummies we find in

movies are not.  They’re still dead on the inside.

Like those make-believe mummies we were once dead inside, too.  But not anymore!

But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you are saved! (Ephesians 2:4-5)

Jon’s boys are also busy after meetings building a different kind of game:  We’re making a corn-hole set for us to use at activities.  We haven’t seen a corn-hole set here in Slovakia so far, so we can’t tell you the Slovak name yet!

  1. Love the game ideas…the messages behind the games should stay with the children! Blessings on your ministry!
