Games for Women's Group at Church

Updated April 17, 2017

The purpose of a church women's group is to help each other grow spiritually in Christ and encourage each other through prayer, worship songs and Bible study. You can also use games to instil important Biblical truths in your group members. When deciding on games to play, think about the specific lessons you want to teach. You also want to make sure the games are challenging but still fun for all members.

Bible Story Role Play

Divide your group members into groups of three and give each group a Bible story, along with the book, chapter and verse in which the story is found. Then, let each group stand in front of the room and perform the Bible passage you assigned them. Give the group who performed the best a Bible devotional that's specifically designed for women.

Monologue About Biblical Characters Who Inspire You

Have group members stand up and give a 10-minute monologue on which Biblical characters inspire them the most and why. Ask a few questions about their choices of characters and judge each monologue. Award the top two speakers a gift card to a local Christian bookstore.

Trivia Game on Key Events in the Bible

Hold a 20-question trivia game in which you test group members' knowledge of important events in the Bible. You can ask questions about events such as Adam and Eve's banishment from the Garden of Eden; the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ; the extraordinary rule of King David; and the life of the apostle Paul and his mission to spread Christianity throughout Europe and Asia. Give the woman with the most points a Christian-related T-shirt.

Outreach Idea Contest

If you're interested in getting outreach ideas from your group, have a contest in which each group member presents her idea on how the women's group can become more involved in your community. Appoint a committee to hear and critique each idea, and allow the woman with the best outreach idea to collaborate with you to plan out the new initiative.
