By April 13, 2020Digital Events/Activities

We’re attempting a special event called “Lock-In At Home.” It will basically be a bunch of short activities throughout the day on a particular day. Here’s the event description from our ministry website:

Lock-In At Home

We’re all at home right now but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a fun event! During the Lock-In At Home students will be able to participate in various interactive activities on Zoom throughout the afternoon and evening. Join us for one, two or all of the activities! Each activity will take about 10-20 minutes. We will limit activities to 20 minutes so students aren’t on Zoom for the entire day! To get the Zoom link for each activity, register at the button below. We’ll send the Zoom link in a confirmation email after you register.  Here’s the activity lineup:

  • 2 pm—Snaaack time & online games (Eat a snack at home and play Zoom games, Sidekick games)
  • 3 pm—Students share their favorite Bible verse
  • 4 pm—Funny video marathon & creative hour intro (Show funny videos from YouTube, students will be challenged to create something [a short video, a drawing, a Lego design, etc.] for the next 40 minutes)

How I used this in my context
This will be our first official "special event" since COVID-19 started.
