Fun Things to Do During Boring Sermons

  • Pass a note to the organist asking whether he/she plays requests.
  • See if a yawn really is contagious.
  • Slap your neighbor. See if they turn the other cheek. If not, raise your hand and tell the preacher.
  • Devise ways of climbing into the balcony without using the stairs.
  • Listen for your preacher to use a word beginning with ‘A’ then ‘B’ and so on through the alphabet.
  • Sit in the back row and roll a handful of marbles under the pews ahead of you. After the service, credit yourself with 10 points for every marble that made it to the front.
  • Using church bulletin or visitor cards for raw materials, design, test and modify a collection of paper airplanes.
  • Start from the back of the church and try to crawl all the way to the front, under the pews, without being noticed.
  • Raise your hand and ask for permission to go to the rest room.
  • Whip out a hankie and blow your nose. Vary the pressure exerted on your nostrils and trumpet out a rendition of your favorite hymn.
  • Chew gum; if the sermon goes on for more than 15 minutes, start blowing bubbles.
  • By unobtrusively drawing your arms up into your sleeves, turn your shirt around backwards.
  • Try to raise one eyebrow.
  • Crack your knuckles.
  • Twiddle your thumbs.
  • Twiddle your neighbor’s thumbs.
  • Wiggle your ears so that the people behind you will notice.

Acquired at First Baptist Church of Bridgeport at the youth conference. Why a church would hand this out is beyond me! đŸ™‚
