Welcome to “The Big Drop” – a gospel-centered family experience unlike any other! During this event, families will play games, eat sweet treats and watch gravity do its thing as you drop stuff from way up high and watch it go KERSPLAT! Best of all, everyone will hear the story of Jesus’ first disciples and discover how we too should drop everything and follow Him.
HOST IT AS A FALL FESTIVAL, SUMMER PARTY, BACK-TO-SCHOOL BASH AND MORE
“The Big Drop” comes with multiple sets of media so you can tailor the event to the season in which you are holding it. Host it as a fall festival, summer party, back-to-school bash, outreach event, part of your VBS, or add it to your trunk-or-treat event.
No matter how you use it, “The Big Drop” will be the gospel-centered event that kids talk about ALL YEAR LONG!
OUR STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE MAKES PLANNING EASY
Step 1: Use our promotional materials to get kids excited. “The Big Drop” comes with a promotional package containing a video, slides, social media, a printable invitation, an email template, and posters (print-on-your-own) to help you build hype for the event. It also includes an outreach idea that will surely get kids to invite their friends and neighbors.
Step 2: Choose your “pre-drop” games and activities. When kids and families first arrive, engage them in a variety of activities. We’ve included directions for more than 30 fall and summer-themed ideas you can use as a part of your event. Pool Noodle Obstacle Course, Pumpkin Bowling, Rubber Ducky Water War, Corncob Toss, and many, many more!
Step 3: It’s time to drop! When kids hear “The Big Drop” theme song, they’ll know it’s time for the main event! “The Big Drop” comes with step-by-step instructions on safely selecting a “launch pad,” establishing a “drop zone,” and choosing items to drop. It’s everything you need for a fun and safe event.
Step 4: Give them the gospel. We’ve already crafted a short, but powerful, gospel message that teaches everyone about the first disciples and invites kids to drop everything and follow Jesus. It’s the perfect way to reach your community with the good news of God’s love.
Step 5: Throw an ice cream after-party with a catch—literally! Our director’s guide gives you step-by-step instructions on throwing the coolest ice cream party ever. Kids will have more fun catching their ice cream than they will eating it!
