Team Spirit: You need your
scoreboard for this one. Have each group come up and perform their cheer or
song or rap or chant or skit or whatever. Each group is rated by applause. You
may applause at your own cheer.
Scoring: Each team should get
a great score. Be honest because some people really like to see that things are
fair in competition. This is all for fun but there should be a winner if
someone has worked hard enough to attain it. Remind them that the goal was to
work together as a team so there is one final score.
Final score by leaders:
You should have the total tally points on the scoreboard in front of the room.
The leaders are allowed to and should score for total team participation,
niceness, problem solving and Christ-like attitude. This could mean that a
really mean team who is in first place takes second. Try not to upset the
overall score balance too much but also try to affirm great attitudes.
Remember, as the leader, you make the ultimate decision.
Presentation of award:
Give the awards to the team members. Let them celebrate, give a big cheer for
the winner but start the discussion immediately.
Discussion: Ask some of these
questions, have an open discussion. There are no right or wrong answers.

A Gentle Goodbye:

an end. Encourage them to keep their journals with them and look at them next
week again to see if anything has changed in the way they view the Genesis

One Week recap:
This is the perfect time to send out your
first email or social media blast. Remember your “Mourning Phase” might be
