Theme Night: Adultery

While students may not think the 6th commandment applies to them, Martin Luther's explanation in the Small Catechism says this commandment means "We should lead sexually pure and decent lives in what we say and do, and husband and wife love and honor each other." (Emphasis mine) Sexually pure and decent lives ought to begin long before marriage, and with that in mind I have written the plan for a theme night discussing this commandment in a comfortable, appropriate environment.



Challenge: This week in your quiet time, ask God to guard your heart for your future husband/wife. Ask Him to protect your husband/wife and help them to grow closer to Him.

Trivia: Battle of the sexes in the Bible

Message: Separated by gender, discussion on preparing your heart for marriage

Games:

  • Four (Three) on a Couch: Put names in hat and pass out so everyone has a different name. The goal of the game is to get four (three) girls or four (three) guys on the couch. The person on the right of empty chair/spot calls the name of a game participant. The person whose piece of paper has the called name sits in the empty chair. Whoever sits on the right of the new empty chair calls out another name.
  • Honey, If You Love Me
  • The Winking Game: Form a circle of chairs. Girls sit on chairs; guys stand behind girls’ chairs. One guy stands behind a vacant chair. Guys stand with hands behind their backs. Girls sit upright on the chairs. The guy with the empty chair has to wink at a girl to invite her to his chair. She must try to move to his chair. As soon as she moves, her 'protector' may try and stop her by placing his hands on her shoulders. No grabbing and ripping clothes allowed! Guys swap with girls after a while. Some guys may need to 'be girls' or vice versa.
