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!
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!
Once items have been ordered, allow participants to begin looking up the Scriptures for each item.
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?!
Below is an example Mystery Dinner Menu. Using this menu, the participant would record their order on the right half of the page. The server then could tear or cut the menu in half taking the right side order but leaving the left side with Scriptures with the participant who could then look them up to identify what they were to receive.
We have also provided a Mystery Dinner Menu key for those preparing and serving the meal.
If not using all items, some items could be marked through or deleted.

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!
Special note: We do preview the websites to which we link, but are unable to peruse them completely. We try to check others' faith statements and make sure they do profess Jesus Christ as God's Son and salvation is found only in Him. It must, however, be your responsibility to personally dig into God's Word and allow the Holy Spirit to be your first and final teacher on all subjects.
