A Perfect Match

This game takes a lot of preparation!

Pick some famous couples from the Bible (eg. Samson & Delilah, Mary & Joseph, Ruth & Boaz, Abraham & Sarah, David & Bathsheba, etc. Or some famous groups of people from the Bible, eg. Shadrach & Meshach & Abednego, the 12 sons of Israel, 12 disciples of Jesus, etc.) and create some information sheets about them (including details of where you’d read about them in the Bible, who they are, their role in the salvation story of the Bible, and some prayer points to thank God for). Here is a link to an online dictionary of bible characters that is very useful. Put up the information sheets about the Bible characters on the walls around the room.

Create some sticky name labels for each name in the famous couple or group (eg. a label for Samson and a label for Delilah etc.) and distribute the labels randomly to each person. Give everybody 5 minutes to check out the information sheets and discover who they are and who their match is (eg. If it’s “Samson” they need to find “Delilah”). Once everybody has made their match and formed their pair or group, they sit together with the info sheet and talk about what they discovered about their bible character and then pray the prayer points. Bring everybody back together and pick some people to share who they were and what they discovered.

Note: Even if people have little or no Bible knowledge they should be able to work it out from the info sheets.

Here’s some information sheets in Word doc.
