If you’re looking for some icebreaker ideas for your church group, consider these options. All of these activities are easy to execute and don’t require much preparation.

It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.

1. Lie Detector

A lie detector is a device that can measure various physiological responses, such as blood pressure and sweating (galvanic skin response), when a person answers questions. These measures can be useful for determining whether someone is truthful, especially when they’ve been caught in a crime.

Unlike the polygraph, which is a device that measures many bodily indicators, lie detectors only monitor one physiological indicator at a time. The first lie detector was invented in 1921 by police officer John A. Larson of California.

2. The M&M’s Challenge

The M&M’s Challenge is a great virtual icebreaker for church groups that will get people talking and laughing. This game is fun, easy and very flexible.

The goal of the game is to get each person to share three items that represent how they are currently feeling emotionally, spiritually and physically. Then ask them to re-assemble in a circle and share their thoughts with the group.

If you have a large number of people, it is best to split the group into teams of six or more people. Each team needs to have two passengers on their train.

3. The Purse or Wallet Challenge

This is a simple and fun icebreaker that focuses on getting to know one another. It’s especially helpful if you’re trying to introduce people to your church group for the first time.

Participants take a few minutes to find objects in their wallets or purses that represent how they feel emotionally, spiritually and physically. Then they share those items with the group.

4. The Highs and Lows Challenge

A good icebreaker will help people feel comfortable with each other and bond together. It should be fun and non-threatening.

The Highs and Lows Challenge is a simple icebreaker that can be used with any group size. It can also be adapted to the age of the group and their levels of Biblical studies knowledge.

This icebreaker is a great way to get people talking about the people they admire most in their lives. It can also be used to launch a study about identity or values.

5. The One Thing Challenge

The One Thing Challenge is a fantastic tool for building self-esteem and gratitude. It’s a simple exercise that involves recording ONE thing you appreciate about yourself every day for 30 days.

This icebreaker is perfect for groups of any size, and works well with youth and adults. This is a great way to get your group members talking about themselves and their passions.

If you have a large group, this icebreaker will take longer than other ones. Make sure to allow enough time for everyone in the group to share their answers.

6. The Name Game

In any group setting, there will be times when everyone feels a bit awkward as they get to know one another. Using icebreaker games and activities helps to make this time lighthearted and fun, so that everyone can feel comfortable in the environment.

The Name Game is a great virtual icebreaker that is perfect for church groups. It is also a simple game that can be played by anyone. It is particularly useful when there are new people in the group and can help people learn each other’s names.

7. The Bible Quiz

The Bible Quiz is a great way to get your group talking about God’s Word. The questions are simple to answer, and you can play it as a family game or during your Sunday school class.

The Bible Quiz is a team sport where teams of 5-7 people compete to answer questions based on scripture verses. This fast-paced game is a favorite of youth groups and adults in the Nazarene Church.
