Five Smooth Stones: A David and Goliath Game

Five Smooth Stones: A David and Goliath Game

Here is a quick and simple game for your kids if you are teaching about David and Goliath. We’ve learned that many children’s ministry leaders have busy schedules, and out of respect for the precious time you do have, we’re working to deliver game information in formats that are easy to understand at little more than a glance. So on our Instagram and Pinterest accounts we’re developing these game-in-one-picture images. Here’s one of our game-in-a-pictures about David and Goliath!

Stay tuned for more resources for your children’s ministry! Have a great game idea that you’d like to share? Please let us know in the comments! Also, please let us know where you learned the game from, because we love to give credit! For example, this game is inspired by a game we found from Leanne Guenther. We’ve modified it little, but we like both versions! Thanks for visiting RemGen.org!

Mystery Voice: A Bible Verse Game

For today’s post we have a Bible verse game that we recently read about at HopeinGod.org. For this game, you will need to find a church member that will record your memory verse before the church service begins. During church, you will play the recording of the memory verse spoken by the “Mystery Voice” and the children have to guess who is the speaker.


For added difficulty in a smaller church setting, we suggest using character voices while reading the Bible verses. If you try this out in your church, please let us know what worked or didn’t work for you in the comments! Thanks for checking out our blog today here at RemGen. May God bless you and your ministry to children!

Daniel and the Lion’s Den Game

Today we would like to bring you a great game you can use in any children’s ministry context, be it a small-group session or a large group service like children’s church. It’s a simple take on rock-paper-scissors themed to the story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den (from Daniel chapter 6). It works like so:

Children's Ministry Games: Daniel and the Lion's Den Game

Two players stand back-to-back and choose one of three poses: Daniel’s praying hands, the angry fist of the governor, or the claws of the lion (see photos below).
