Theme Night: Idols

This night was designed to teach students how the commandment "Have no other gods before me" can relate to modern-day life.

Challenge: Think of something in your life that you feel is taking up time you should be spending with God (TV, internet, doing your hair, etc.). For the next week, limit the time you would normally spend on that and use it to grow closer to God (through prayer, reading your Bible, etc.). Come back next week and tell us what effect it had.

Trivia: Idols in the Bible

Message: Modern-day Idols

  • Celebrity Charades: Like regular charades, but doing celebrity impersonations
  • Youth Group Idol: Like American Idol, this game needs a panel of judges—one to four, depending on the size of your group—and a number of willing students. Instead of traditional American Idol songs, use songs like
    • The Barney theme song
    • I’m a Little Teapot
    • Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
    • Jesus Loves Me
    • Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • Who’s My Idol?: Everyone writes down the name of someone they could call their “idol”—a famous historical figure, an actor or sports celebrity, or a popular politician. Then have them tape the name on the back of the person on their left. Everyone goes around and asks people yes or no questions about who is on their back. They can only ask each person one question at a time.
