2. Using Sidekick to Engage Students Before The Service Starts
This one is pretty similar to the first idea, but this one is aimed at a different audience. If your group is anything like the groups I’ve worked with, you know that “youth group starts at 7pm” means the first student will show up at about 5:32pm, right? Right. 😂
What better way to engage students who show up early than by featuring a few live polls on the screens in the space where students hang out before your service starts? Not only does this give them a little something extra that they can do, but they can also see the results continue to change as more and more students arrive.
Plus, since the QR code for Sidekick Live Polls stays the same throughout the entire presentation, if you decide to use more polls during your service, any student who voted in a “Pre-Service Poll” won’t even have to re-scan the QR code!
