Christian Club Examples
When you think of a club, what do you think of? Do you think of a group of people getting together to celebrate, share, or participate in similar values and interests?
When we think of a Christian club we think of combining the above with fun, laughter, support, encouragement, and of course mind-provoking topics and thoughts.
Here are some thoughts for a successful club:
Your friends need to know that being a Christian isnt dull and boring with a list of dos and donts. Your Christian club should be fun and intriguing for those students who come just to "check it out" as well as informative for those Christian students who want to be challenged to make a difference.
Dont limit your club just to a once a week meeting. There are all kinds of things you can do throughout the week, including numerous projects in which you can get your entire school involved!
What better way to start or end the school day? In the Bible, God says, "Wherever two or more are gathered in My Name, I am in their midst." Instead of calling it a prayer "group" or prayer "time" why not call it a club? After all, youre a group of people who want to get together to celebrate communication with God through prayer! This will build unity among your Christian friends and give time to pray for students in your school.
This is a great way to gather students together for prayer, reading of Scripture, and encouragement! Students may bring their Bibles or subscribe to such daily devotionals as Campus Journal or Our Daily Bread. (You may even want to offer donuts once a week!)

This is a great way to make new friends, keep old friends, and show Christs love to those who dont know Him! Get together with your "cell" (3-5 students working together) to identify people who are hurting, have special needs, or need encouragement in your school. Reach out to those people! Greeting cards, cookies, a cassette tape, an invitation to your Christian club, a visit, and a ride home are just a few ways to make a difference!
Depending on the type of outreach you want, from a party with speaker to a large concert, your program will vary. Some may include:
Other areas you should consider are: budget, support people, promotions, refreshments, etc. Remember:
This doesnt have to be large to be effective.
Purpose: To demonstrate the reality of Christ by serving those around us; and to build credibility and a good relationship with the school administration
This is a great way to put your faith into action. You can pick up trash around the school grounds, or volunteer to paint a building or hallway. Ask your principal for ideas! As you look for ways to help around your schools campus, pay attention for special needs of people students, teachers, and other staff of the school. (See "On Campus Positive Influence" above.)
