My cup runs over. A cup is used
quite often in the Bible to
represent a persons fate, a
persons destiny. The cup could
be one of blessing or of
judgment. Is your cup empty?
Half full? Overflowing? In a place
where water was scarce an
overflowing cup implied
abundance. This weeks lesson is
great for summer in that the
youth will get a little wet while
learning about what is means to
be filled to overflowing with the
blessings of God.

into pairs. Partners stand six
feet apart. One person gets a
cup with a ping-pong ball in it
and the other a water gun. At
you signal, those with the
water pistol must race to
squirt enough water into the
cup to make the pin-pong
ball float. Keep a bucket of
water nearby for easy refills.

Bottle Fill Relay Each team
appoints one member to lie
face up with head toward the
starting line, holding an
empty pop bottle on his or
her head. One member from
each team fills a cup (made
of nonbendable material)
with water, runs to the
bottle, and pours in water
until it is gone. He or she
then runs back, and the next
contestant runs out with a
cup of water as soon as the
first player crosses the
starting line.

Leaky Cup Relay Give each
team a plastic cup or sturdy
paper cup with holes punched in
it. The first person on a team fills
it up and passes the leaking cup
over his or her head. The person
who receives it must pass it
under his or her legs to the next
person Over, under, over,
under and it reaches the end of
the line. At the end of the line,
the last youth must run and
dump any water that is left in the
cup into a 5 gallon bucket and
then run to the front of the line.
After a given time, whomever
