How It Works:

Divide your group into teams. I normally give the teams 30 seconds to come up with a team name to add a bit of whimsy to the activity. Give a piece of paper and pen to each team and have them write down the answers as you go through the questions. When you are finished teams should trade paper to grade the quizzes. Give a small prize to the winning team. Smaller groups can have as few as two teams, but try to avoid playing as individuals. Part of the experience is to work together as a team.

    I was looking for quotes to put together an April Fool’s evening service. This was beyond what I hoped to find. I will give credit for the work, but this will be a large part of the service. Thanks much.
