Youth Group Teambuilding: Spider Web

Fourteen members of Holy Family’s Youth Group gathered on Sunday, October 22nd for a chili dinner followed by team building activities and worship.  The chosen activity was “Spider Web” and is part of Mobile Team Challenge low ropes course which was purchased with YMGI grant funds, matched by HFEC YG fundraising and the Diocese of Indianapolis. With Halloween just a week away, the theme had the perfect seasonal nod. 
In the activity, participants must traverse a “toxic spider web” without knocking it down.  Team members must strategize and plan to develop the best approach for completing the task.  The exercise requires support for all team members and physical effort and leadership from each person.  Communication and trust are essential for successful completion. The youth made connections from this activity to their own faith journeys.
Following the activity, the attendees participated in Compline led by Thomas Canter and music worship led by Ian Johnston.  Youth group members closed out the evening by making s’mores on a charcoal grill.  The activities were led by Marty Blake and Jolene Johnston.
