I was looking for an activity that involved movement, fun, and the Bible to begin our evening youth group. I’ve used photo scavenger hunts for a variety of purposes, but this time I used it to introduce the next few weeks of worship readings. I am hoping that reading the scriptures ahead of time will help youth engage with worship in the weeks ahead. This would be a great way to introduce an upcoming sermon series or a theme.
The scavenger hunt took about 15 minutes to complete. There was a lot of laughter and running around the church as youth found creative ways to find a take a photo to match the verse.
