A few years ago at the church I was serving, Community of Hope in Mansfield TX, we did a Family Feud skit during Christmastime. It was a silly little sketch, really – one family was composed of the typical charcaters from Christmas, such as Frosty and Rudolph, and the other family was Mary and Joseph, with the wisemen helping out. You can guess the “point” of the drama. The team was very enthusiastic. Me, not so much. But believing in team, I went along, and played the host.
It wasn’t the best kind of worship moment in terms of reaching real human conditions through meaningful artistic expressions, I thought, and I never expected it to go anywhere beyond the Sunday morning we did it.
A few weeks later I was online at churchmedia.net and came across someone wanting some help with a Family Feud PowerPoint template for an event this person was planning at their church. I posted a link to the media I had created.
That was over four years ago.
Apparently, Family Feud is popular. In spite of everything we have done at Midnight Oil since January of 2005, that thread continues to be the one of the most popular incoming links to our site. To give you an idea, over 300 people have come to Midnight Oil in the past two weeks to see our Family Feud template.
So, we decided to improve on the original template, fix it up for easy customization, and offer it as an official Midnight Oil resource. So, now, when you are ready to do Family Feud, here is where you can go to get the media you’ll need. (76853)
