It took me all day yesterday, but I have the Hobby Who game ready to go for this coming Sunday evening. Twenty-five different people from our congregation gave us their pictures and their favorite hobbies this past weekend, more than enough for us to have a good time guessing hobbies. Before and after the worship service this coming weekend, we will have a series of four slides for each person and their favorite hobby. Everybody in the audience can try to figure out which of four possible people will match the favorite hobby. The above is one example question. After a few seconds one person will disappear, then another, then another, revealing the correct person.
Of course there's more to this than just having a good time. We are a new, young church. Many of the people coming don't know many other people in the church. And, I think it would be safe to say, no one knows everybody. This is one way to break the ice and match a face with a name... and maybe a hobby.
It's not too late to get into the game for this coming weekend. If you haven't already given me your picture and hobby, just email me back here (or write a comment). If you got your picture taken last weekend, you're in. But if you didn't stop for your photo after the service, we probably don't have you in the game yet. Each weekend we'll add a few more contestants.
Make sure you come a little early this Sunday evening so you can play the Hobby Who game!
