Youth Group goes Egg Bowling

What did that have to do with God?

On Wednesday September 24th, the youth group competed in it's first ever Egg Bowling event.
Egg Bowling, really? Wasn't that messy? Oh, you must have used hard boiled eggs...
No, we used raw eggs.

You see, our topic for Wednesday night was from Exodus 1:1-2:10, the story of Moses' birth and how God protected him.
We began our evening forming 5 teams and each 4 person team had an egg in a plastic bag, toilet paper, and tape. Their objective was to protect the egg from all harm knowing that they were going to play hot potato toss with their egg and then go egg bowling. Of course we played outside where the eggs could and did hit the ground quite frequently during the 20+minutes of activity. When we were all finished, 4 out of 5 eggs survived their ordeal but then one sadly broke before it could make it inside the building. The eggs were quite fragile.

We came inside and talked about if we were surprised about the eggs that survived, and started learning and talking about how God protected Moses, not like our eggs but in a very unexpected way. We learned about the story of Moses' birth and watch the first few minutes of the movie Prince of Egypt. We reviewed what the Bible records in Exodus about how God protected Moses in the midst of very serious and dangerous circumstances. We discussed how God protects us too as we finished our evening with some chocolate chip cookies. "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble" Psalm 46:1.

If you are in 4th through 6th grade, you are invited to join us each Wednesday evening at 7pm. If you have any questions, please speak to Dawn or Gary Hill at hill.dawnm@gmail.com
