Meetings at the Mall
Meetings at the Mall
The Mall can be a great place for meetings, provided the right “type” of meetings.
You don’t want to try to have a quiet, serious soul-searching type of meeting in this type of venue.
There are many things you can do for a meeting at the Mall.
Rock Solid Girls in Kailua, Hawaii had a meeting where the focus was outreach. The discussion was that often we have a hard time approaching people to talk to them about the Lord.
Girls were formed into teams of two. All girls would take surveys as they walked through the mall.
One half of the teams were assigned with the task of asking people if they would rather choose Starbucks or Jamba Juice.
The other half of the teams were to ask people if they preferred pepperoni or cheese pizza.
Dialogue went something like this: “Excuse me, Sir/Maam. We are with Todays Christian Girl club. We are taking a survey. Which is your favorite – Would you order cheese pizza or pepperoni pizza? Oh great! Thank you Sir/Maam. Have a good day!”
The team that took the most surveys in an hour received a gift card to Starbucks.
Devo: It was discussed that just as easy as it was to talk to people by taking surveys, we also can invite people to church and talk to others about Jesus.
You can pass out church cards for the girls to take home with them to pass out to people they come in contact with during the next week.
Snacks: Perhaps your meeting could start in the Food Court and everyone could purchase their own dinner.

2. Scavenger Hunts
Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt. Make teams of 2-4 depending on the size of your club. Give each team a list of what they are to find within an hour. Pictures must be taken (on phones) that proves they found all items on the list.
The rules would include that the girls conduct themselves in a professional manner and that they properly return all items they use for their pictures.
