National Tongue Twister Day

Maybe you celebrate it every year, or maybe this is the first you’ve heard of it, but get ready friends, because this Sunday is National Tongue Twister Day!

We’re celebrating a little early here in the office by practicing some tongue twisters ourselves.

Check out our attempts…

Ministry Tip – Games: POLE-ish Olympics

Ministry Tip – Games: POLE-ish Olympics

Today, we bring the first posting for Ministry Tips in the form of a game to use with your student group. This game comes from my days as a student in my church’s youth group. A few of my friends and I were goofing off and unintentionally created a game that proved to be loved by our group for the remainder of my school years.

We’ve included a video to explain the game and give some visual aid.  Enjoy.
