Luckily, there are countless examples of icebreakers for small groups — free tips that can guide you and those you lead in small group Bible studies. Cru has a long list of options for you to consider. Here are a few (via Cru):
- Best/Worst: Have each person share their best and worst moments from the previous week. Try to steer the group away from school items. This icebreaker is an easy one to use at first and gives you good feedback concerning their life at the moment. Some veteran groups do this several times a year... the answers become more honest as you go.
- Most Unique: Go around the room and have each person share something that makes them different from anyone in the group, like, “I’ve never left the state I was born in” or “I am one of 10 kids.”
- Two Truths and a Lie: Have each person make three statements about themselves: two true statements and one lie. For example, “I’ve never broken a bone. I have five sisters. I was born in Yugoslavia.” The group tries to guess which statement is the lie.
