Sunday School Games: Trusting God & Others

There are many game ideas about trust that you can create with a blindfold. In this example, I have the children lead around their friends. The goal is to keep them safe, so use an appropriate area.

After the children complete the course, ask them to talk about the experience. Here are some questions to guide the debrief.

  • How did it feel to not know where you were going?
  • Did trusting your friend make it easier?
  • In real life, do you always know what God has coming next?
  • What can you do to trust God in those situations?

Please leave a comment with your ideas and suggestions for this Trust Game. We love to hear all the new ways readers adapt these for their ministry. You can also watch this Trust Game video directly on YouTube.

    Thank you for ideas I am a volunteer non teacher who loves teaching once a month at Sunday school, in Christ Church Mexico City my kids range from 6 to 14 some speak English some speak Spanish so it’s a challenge to find interesting activities for all. Your site has been a great help. thank you !

    I think we will use this in the coming spring when I get my teen volunteers for the school year to help in the little children’s class rooms. I will have them do this and explain that as they had to trust the person leading them around safely and that God gave them this person. Now they will be trusted to lead by example and help the teachers in a good way in leading the Pre-k and K kids to God’s love and trust. (so we would be using it as a training tool. ) I love this.

    Can anyone suggest an activity for 7-11 year olds based on the story in John 4, vv43-53, about the royal official’s son? The point is that he believed Jesus when he said his son would not die, even though he hadn’t seen it yet. His son was healed at the exact time when Jesus said he would be. So it’s about trusting God even when we can’t see results yet… Thanks.

    Thank you. What a God given idea. I will be using it this Sunday. I am teaching on “Trusting God”. I have used this object lesson in a similar way before. I put together as partners those that don’t necessarily like or hang with one another at church. This worked wonders in bridging gaps between two people that would otherwise not connect. Keep the ideas coming. God Bless.
