Service Activity

In a few weeks we will be having a service activity, and we are looking for service opportunities.  If you have any small service projects that would take about 10-30 minutes to complete, let us know.  Our activity runs from 7pm to about 8:30pm, in the evening, so outside services would work as long as they are in well lit locations.  We will also be passing around a sign up sheet on Sunday.

Possible services ideas would include taking out someone's garbage, sweeping their floor, vacuuming someone's family room, reading to their children, leaving notes of kindness on windshields of random vehicles, singing a hymn to a family, sharing a scripture with a family, washing someone's windows , etc.

The activity will be in the form of a scavenger hunt, and the various teams will be competing against each other.  It will work something like this:

EDGE Method

The EDGE method is a four step method for teaching a skill:
  • Explain
  • Demonstrate
  • Guide
  • Enable


First explain what you will be doing. Tell them the steps involved. Visual aids might be helpful for this step. Use questions to gauge their understanding.


Show them how to do the skill. Demonstrate the steps using the actual materials. Describe what you are doing.


Let them practice the skill. Guide and coach them as they try to do it themselves. This step will take the most time.


Enable them by letting them do the skill themselves without any intervention.

Example of Teaching EDGE Exercise

An exercise with paper airplanes to help the participants understand teaching EDGE:
  • Explain: Explain how they would make a paper airplane.
  • Demonstrate: Get out a piece of paper and show them how to make the paper airplane.
  • Guide: Give each of them a piece of paper and described each step, and have them do it with their pieces of paper.
  • Enable: Give them each another piece of paper and tell them to make a paper airplane on their own.
