Smores Women's Ministry Theme Ideas

I Want S'more! (of Jesus)
Women's Ministry Theme

Julia Bettencourt

Posted June 25, 2014

Spiritual Application

This theme revolves around wanting more of Jesus!

A casual summer theme.

Would work well with a camping party.

Theme Verse Suggestions

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?  Psalm 42:1,2

Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.  Psalm 73:25

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.  Psalms 19:10

Perhaps skip the favor- It should be a relaxed get-together so maybe don't have a favor this time.

Send your key verse home on a cardstock tag. 

Not actually making S'mores at your function?  Send a S'more favor home.  Check out the different ways to package them online.

Using a camping theme?  Flashlights with tag "Let Me See More of Jesus".

See my blog for creative favor ideas.

Just for Fun

Roast S'mores of course.

Roasting S'mores without a campfire?   Use sternos.  This is how I let my kids make them at home.  Place sternos in rock-lined pans or inside tera cotta pots.  Make sure your surface is protected.

Go on a hike.
