Playing games during Christian women’s fellowship is a great way to encourage Christian team building and break the ice. Games can also add humor to a women’s fellowship event and incorporate Christian knowledge for educational purposes. Many Christian youth games can also be played as women’s games for fun and getting to know each other in a fellowship setting.
Block Buster is a team-building game with emphasis on the connection between Christian mothers. Each participant takes a child’s wooden ABC block from a bucket. She continues then by introducing herself and stating a personal fact or telling a personal story inspired by the letter on the block. For example, a participant holding a D block might talk about her daughter(s). The first player starts building a stack of blocks by placing hers on a table. Each fellowship member follows by placing her block on the stack. The goal of the game is to keep building the stack of blocks without letting any of the blocks fall.
Guess Who is a popular game played to test each player’s Christian knowledge. This women’s fellowship activity is started by taping the name of a Christian character to each woman’s back as she arrives. She will not know which character she is but the other players will be able to see. She asks questions about who she might be with the other players giving her hints and clues until she figures out which biblical character she is.
Christian women fellowship participants are gathered in a close circle. Each woman is instructed to take the hand of two different women not standing next to her. Once every woman is holding two other women’s hands, the members of the circle must untangle themselves without letting go. Human Knots is a good Christian team-building activity that teaches women to work together to achieve a common goal.
On a Roll
A roll of toilet paper is passed around a women’s fellowship circle with each woman instructed to take as much as she needs. Once every participant has taken her toilet paper, each participant is asked to state one fact about herself for each sheet of toilet paper she has taken. To add some humor to the game, each woman has to explain why she took as much or as little toilet paper as she did.
Mingling is encouraged in a large group by playing Three’s Company. Groups of three are created by writing the name of each member of a popular trio on three separate notecards. Examples of popular trios are Athos, Porthos and Aramis of the Three Musketeers or Larry, Moe and Curly of the Three Stooges. The trios can also be biblical in nature to encourage Christian knowledge. A notecard is distributed to each women's fellowship participant. The participants are then instructed to find the other members of their trio. Once the trios have been formed, each trio sits together for dinner or another activity.
