Outing Ideas for your Kids Life Group

Outing Ideas for the Kids in your Life Group!!

Life Groups are all about coming together to study God’s Word while forming friendships in the process. Those relationships are especially important when leading a Life Group for kids.

A great way to build those relationships are through Outings. Outings are frequent hangout sessions that allow the kids time to bond in a way that doesn’t feel formal or forced. Outings are separate from the Life Group meeting and are usually hosted on a different day, once a month or once every other month.

 Below I’ve outlined 5 types of Outings that the kids in your Life Group will love!!
