How Churches Are Using Cornhole For Fellowship, Youth Ministering, & Fundraising

Cornhole is a popular game that has been seen in many different venues and events.  It's not just great for tailgating, parties, camping trips, beach hangouts, and family barbecues.  Cornhole is also good for church events.  This article shares some ideas on how your church can get in on the cornhole fun.

Why Cornhole Is One of The Best Christian Youth Games

Cornhole is a great activity for churches looking for suitable games for their Christian youth group.  Finding activities for a youth organization can be a daunting task.  It's so hard to find something that is suitable for everyone.  Cornhole is a game that can be played by a wide age range, so kids both young and older can enjoy the game as long as they can toss a bag.  It doesn't require a great deal of skill or physical range, so most individuals in Youth groups will be qualified to participate.

Have a peek at Fort Hill Christian Youth Camp putting the fun of cornhole to use as part of their youth program.  Notice how there are kids of all sizes; all having a ball!...

Why Cornhole Is The Perfect Fellowship Activity

Often times, church groups get caught up in holding the same monthly or annual fellowship activities.  This can result in a loss of interest followed by a decrease in participation or even worse, attendance at such events.  Try introducing something new like the game of cornhole.  Many people in certain parts have never heard of the game and will find it exciting and new.  Even those who are aware of it may not get a chance to play it often and will find it thrilling to be involved in a church event centered around the game.  Cornhole can be a fun and exciting fellowship activity.

It doesn't even have to be a huge gathering.   Here's a video of the praise team at Horizon Church getting together after church for some relaxation and a little cornhole. 

What I really like about this gathering is that you see members chatting, vegging out in the hammock, and playing cornhole.  Cornhole wasn't necessarily the main attraction, but those who wanted to partake in it could. 

Cornhole Is A Great Way To Connect With Other Churches

Not only is cornhole a great fellowship activity within your church, but it is also a great way to connect with and fellowship with other churches.  Holding cornhole competitions with other churches is a fantastic way to join together with other groups for some fun and friendly competitions.  Because cornhole is a non exclusionary game, it's absolutely perfect for churches, which typically include members of many different ages and physical limitations.

Cornhole Makes Fundraising Fun

Cornhole is an exciting way to raise funds for ministry.  Holding cornhole competitions where participants pay entry fees and compete for money and prizes with a certain percentage going towards a cause is how many churches are using the game of cornhole to raise funds.  And the fact that many can participate means a great turnout for your event.
