Hey guys! I am going to be leading a Jr. High girls Bible study at my church soon and its the first time I’ve ever done it before! I already have a Bible Study picked out, but I need ideas such as fun games, crafts, ice breakers, etc. Just remember that this will be a group of Middle School girls so they will think that everything is lame 😉 I’m very excited and nervous and would love to hear some feedback! I already plan on doing a get to know it Jenga game (questions on jenga pieces) and maybe some sort of craft with DIY mugs, or chalkboards.

What will your lesson be about? If you can relate the intro to that, that’s even better!

Definitely start off with a cheesy get-to-know-you game! And don’t be afraid to switch up the meeting place or take a week where it’s not super spiritual- just having a movie night or something.

Thanks guys! We are actually doing a Bible Study called “A Daughter’s Worth” so luckily i won’t have to plan every lesson by myself. I want to do a cheesy get to know you game but i already know all the girls going and they know each other haha. We are going to have it pretty casual, but definitely focus on God in a more in-depth and comfortable way. Since we all know each other, its easy to be honest and open with each other. I’m so excited to start this and I have so many fun ideas to do! My main thing is just finding crafts and stuff that the girls won’t think are lame hah

I would suggest doing the two truths and a lie game. At the bible study I go to, this is the get-to-know you activity we did (even though we all sort of knew each other already) and it was surprising how much we didn’t know! Also, for the first meeting, buy a plain composition notebook for each girl and a ton of duct-tape if you can. You can spend the first meeting talking and decorating the notebooks, which you could use for their journals throughout the study.

Have a lot of discussion about stuff. Girls like to talk and share their feelings and thoughts 😀 Sometimes an adult nearby can help keep things focused if the talking starts to get a little to much. I would also do prayer circles where girls can share things that have been happening in their lives. Also try mixing it up with games, videos, toys, stories etc. that illustrate things being talked about in the book.

I wouldn’t do the two truths and a lie game if I were you… It sure can be fun, it’s just that it gets everyone lying. ._.

Marissa, I don’t see anything wrong with the two truths and a lie game because it is all in good fun. It’s a way to get to know people in a fun way because you can guess how much you know a person by what you really know about them. Sometimes it can be creative and tricky too and I find that really fun! There’s no reason to overthink innocent games into evil shenanigans.
