Talent Showcase Night
Activities for Youth in the Church
Talent showcase night in your church is
a great time to have kids of all ages show their talents. Even
adults can participate in this activity. God has told us to share our talents with
others and we should do so.

is on a folded 3X5 card to display with their talent so that everyone can

baking talent area. Children and adults can make their favorite
dessert and put it on a dessert table. Once again, have the bakers

purposes. One, people get to show their favorite dessert they made
and two, once the talent showcase is done, you've got dessert for everyone
for a fellowship time!
Having awards, trophies, or ribbons to give
for everyone who participated in your Talent Showcase Night at
Church is a personal choice. This should not be turned into a
"competition", but giving everyone a ribbon for participating would be a
nice jester and it will be something they will have to remember the
