It’s that time again for what’s becoming an annual church activity for our Relief Socity: speed friendshipping!
The concept is the same as speed dating. We spend a couple of minutes chatting with someone (we will have some questions prepared ahead of time, just to get the conversation going) until a timer goes off. Then, everyone switches partners to begin a dialogue with a new person.
If you’re interested in purchasing ($10) a customized PDF file of this invitation in addition to a larger, “poster” size at 8.5″x11″, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We held this in the Relief Society room to make the space feel more intimate. Long tables were placed in a U-shape with chairs on both sides. The tables were covered with a paper table cloth and we taped down paper arrows on one side of the table. This was to give the sisters sitting on that side of the table the direction to shift over to the seat on their right once the timer went off. The sisters sitting across from them remained stationary.
As for food, it was an after-dinner activity so we just had bowls of yummy snacks all along the table so everyone could snack and chat.
Some of our ice-breaker questions:
What do you consider to be your strongest character traits?
What traits or habits do you wish you didn’t have?
