{PARTY} A Church Activity

I help plan activities for the singles at my church. Last month we decided to take the idea of speed dating and use it as a "get to know you" activity. There have been a lot of new people and we wanted an activity where they could make some friends at church. We set up 3 long tables and they talked to the person directly across from you until I obnoxiously yelled "Switch!." They talked for about 3 minutes and then one side of the table rotated down a chair. I bought a variety of snack food from Trader Joes and had them in bowls down the table. I also set up a table for Italian Sodas and they were a hit! I didn't know so many people had never had an italian soda before.

  1. this is such a good idea! speed dating type scenarios always seem to be lame, but this is simple and cool!

    it looks like everyone had fun.

    My two favorite parts of this activity / post:

    1. your beautiful handwriting on the butcher paper on the table, creative!

    2. you have an iPhone
