(1 customer review)


The Great Gospel Escape is a printable escape room designed for kids ages Kindergarten to 5th grade. The goal is to explore the first four books of the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) through games, hands-on activities, and Bible reading. The challenges focus on parables, miracles performed by Jesus, and events from Jesus’ birth to his death. Ultimately, kids solve clues to decipher the “password” that lets them escape: The Great Commission from Matthew 28:16-20.

Kids will have fun and increase their Bible skills by finding and reading a Bible story, and then completing a challenge like a word search, memory game, puzzle, or more to earn a puzzle piece. Once they collect all 9 puzzle pieces, they connect them to learn about the Great Commission!

This activity is suitable for a children’s church service, mid-week club, family event, or any gathering of children that needs a fun activity. The challenges themselves take approximately 65 minutes to complete (~7 minutes per challenge), and if you also do an opening or closing time, this resource could take up to 90 minutes or more.

    We used this activity as a family “Game Night”. We had great feedback from parents, kids, and volunteers! The product is SO easy to customize or use as is. I would love to host another “escape room” with a different theme every year (I think this one could be reused every 3 years or so). Also, it’s a great value!
    Give it a try!
