Zoom Church Activities

Zoom is a convenient and safe way to meet online with your church team. You can use it to host meetings such as small groups, Bible studies and staff meetings.

With many church family gatherings being cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Zoom can be an excellent tool for churches to continue to connect with their members. Here are a few fun ways to host Zoom church activities:

Have you tried Meetn, the new online meeting platform?
It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.

Bible Verse Scavenger Hunt

A fun way to get kids and adults up and moving while also learning about the Bible is with a Bible verse scavenger hunt. This is especially a great activity for when the weather outside isn’t cooperating or when you want to use Zoom in the classroom.

Using a printable Bible verse game sheet, give each participant a list of verses to locate around the room or house. The first team to find them all wins.

Acts of the Bible is another classic that works well for Zoom. It’s like charades, but with Biblical characters. You can also play a version of 20 Questions where one person thinks of a Bible character and the others ask them questions until they guess correctly. Or, try a jigsaw puzzle that relates to the week’s lesson.

Word Games

Zoom church members can enjoy a variety of word games, including Pictionary. Divide a virtual group into teams, assign a drawing player and provide a Pictionary word generator or Bible character phrases for the team to act out while the other team tries to guess.

Other fun word games include Guess Who? (an easy game to play in a group) and 20 Questions. One person thinks of a person and the other players ask them yes or no questions to determine their identity.

Another great Zoom church activity is Kahoot. Use the free version or pay for a more robust platform that allows participants to answer questions in real-time and receive points. You can also host your own game with questions you provide and share it in the Zoom room.

Blindfolded Prayer

A blindfolded prayer is a fun activity for church groups that encourages members to become more in tune with God. Blindfold each member and allow them to find a quiet space where they can pray for a set amount of time. When the time is up, have them come back to the group and share what they heard from God. This is an excellent way to increase faith and strengthen relationships.

Bible Jeopardy is another great fun activity for church groups that encourages spiritual growth and teamwork. Each person writes two truths and one lie about themselves on a sheet of paper. Then the others try to guess what they wrote. The person who guesses correctly in the shortest amount of time wins! To play this game, you’ll need a sheet of paper for each member, fun prizes or recognition and pens.

Worship-Led Trivia

Using Zoom’s polling feature, churches can turn their virtual meetings into fun wagering games. Bet on the Crowd lets attendees vote for their favorite option and instantly displays results.

This fun game encourages spiritual growth and team building among ladies church groups. Start by gathering the group and explaining that they will play Bible verse scavenger hunt. Ask each participant to search their Bibles for specific verses and compare their lists with those of other members. Whoever finds the most verses wins.

This game is an artistic twist on classic trivia that focuses on worship music. The first person to correctly answer questions based on worship music wins. You will need a list of worship songs, paper and pen or pencil for each player, prizes or recognition for the winners and the ability to play on zoom.

Bible Jeopardy

Bible Jeopardy is a fun way to test churchgoers’ knowledge of scripture. The game is easy to play with a zoom call, google hangout or other online video platform that allows all players to see and hear each other. Use virtual buzzers to let players know when they’ve answered correctly.

A recent Jeopardy question has caused a holy hullabaloo. The final round of this week’s Tournament of Champions asked contestants Amy Schneider, Andrew He, and Sam Buttrey to solve a clue about the Bible. The question asked if Paul’s letter to the Hebrews contained more Old Testament quotations than any other New Testament epistle.

The answer was, “Yes.” The question used the King James Version of the Bible as its source, and many viewers were offended. The question also triggered controversy on social media.
