PAY IT FORWARD GIFT EXCHANGE
- This year instead of a regular gift exchange, try to pay it forward instead.
- Early on this month introduce this idea during Youth Group and assign each youth someone else from youth group (like Secret Santa). Also give them a list of all youth in youth group
- (might be a good idea to post this on facebook or somewhere easily accessible).
- The idea is to find a way to love up the person they have been given. It could be anything from a massage, home baked good, message of encouragement, etc. But make it clear that this was from their “Pay It Forward Friend”
- Once someone has been loved up, they must now find someone else in youth group they can love up.
- Continue this process until the next youth group gathering occurs.
- Give it 2 weeks (with some reminders!) or so and then come back to Youth Group and share about all the ways we have loved each other up this month.
