5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Groups

Summer Group Activities for Youth Groups

When summer sets in, it’s important to have a set of activities for your youth ministry team. There are different things you can do to bond with your group members and continue the ministry. However, to have successful activities for the group during summer, you need to plan well. The activities have more chances of ending up successful if you plan for them early enough.

The activities you plan do not need to be expensive for the youth group members to have fun. There are a couple of simple, cheap yet effective ideas you can opt for. Here are four low-cost ideas you can plan for your youth group.

Serve at a Food Pantry
You and the group can also volunteer at a food pantry or host a food drive. In most cases, food pantries need more food during the summer. Your youth group members can connect with the larger church body through hosting a food drive. By hosting a food drive, the youth will become aware of the needs of their community. Volunteering at a food pantry is another activity that members can engage in. You can easily find food pantries and food banks in your area when you search on the Internet. Identify the pantries that will be a best fit for the group and contact them to inquire about partnership.

Host a Corn-hole Tournament
One of the activities that can attract a crowd and help your group to pass the message of love and repentance is a corn-hole tournament. Taking part in corn-hole tourneys does not require a participant to have exceptional skills. If you have the budget, you can even extend the tournament to become a corn-themed night event. At the night event, you can roast corn and grill meat while ministering to the people in attendance. This event will be perfect for the community to know more about your group’s mission.

Wash Cars
Another activity that can be perfect for your youth group during summer is washing cars. When you wash cars for free for church members and other locals, you will be serving the community while having fun. During summer, people are always on the road and they love their cars shining. The community will be happy to be associated with you when they learn you are providing a free service that will help them save a couple of dollars. You can use this opportunity to let the community know about your group and what your mission is.

Serve Meals at Homeless Organizations
Check out a couple of homeless organizations in your area and volunteer with them, helping in things such as serving meals and cleaning. Even if there is no homeless organization in your city, there is a nonprofit that will appreciate your help. Volunteering your time and skills at such organizations will help your group members connect with the outside world.
