Follow the instructions with this Scripture Mystery Dinner Menu for a fun time with your family, church or youth group!
We’ve probably all been a part of a mystery dinner at some point in our lives. I can remember doing this in our youth group as a fundraiser. We invited families from church to come and they never knew quite what they were ordering. It made for some fun surprises and memories!
A Scripture Mystery Dinner would also be a great way for your youth or children to show appreciation for their parents or youth/children workers and have a great time doing it! These are also fun to do as a family for holidays or anytime!
The “Gist” of it:
Each guest gets a mystery dinner menu with only scripture references and they order by scripture. Only the cooks and servers have the inside know! It can be done in courses or just as a single serving. Both ways make for an interesting meal!
Depending on what type of group you have and how much of a “Mystery” dinner you would like it to be -you can arrange the menu with NO clues or give them clues by placing the Scripture references under a labeled heading such as “Meat Choice”, “Dessert Choice”, “Drink Choice”, etc.! It can even be done with a fill-in-the-blank Scripture Menu guide to help out!
You could also have Bibles available and give each group or person a certain amount of time to try to look up menu items for Bible drill practice! How many mystery items could they figure out before ordering...maybe with a one- three minute time allowance?!
Don't feel like you have to include all 24 items! You could keep it really simple with one meat choice, one bread, a couple of vegetables, etc. and have fewer choices for each course!
