当2020年爆发全球大流行it seemed like everything came to a stand still. We were asked to no longer meet in groups, stay home, and social distance. This was taken seriously and as we all know- in person church stopped and everything was done in our homes. Not only were Sunday meetings cancelled but so were activities.
Most Relief Society organizations hold monthly or quarterly activities. These are typically held at the church and are a wonderful opportunity to visit, learn, share and gather together. Because of Covid most Relief Societies have had to get creative when it comes to activities.

As of right now in Spring 2021 we are slowly going back to church. Some areas may even be going back to meet in person for activities. Staying connected is so important and the Relief Society organization thrives on gathering together. Even if you cannot meet in person that doesn’t mean you can’t still hold week day meetings.
What is a virtual activity?
Tips for a successful virtual activity
Some Wards have called a technology specialist to help with Relief Society and Zoom meetings. This is a great opportunity to help others feel needed and to help others with technology. Before you begin having virtual activities do what you can to prepare the ladies in your ward.
- 有关如何使用Zoom或Google Hocouts的说明，请逐步发送。考虑通过电子邮件，Facebook，福音生存应用程序或其他沟通方式来做这件您的病房建立的。
- Ask Ministering Sisters to reach out to their ladies to see if they need help figuring out the technology and arrange ahead of time for someone to assist
- If an activity requires supplies make sure to drop off accordingly beforehand.
- Be patient! Many women are not used to using Zoom and may find it frustrating or confusing. Roll with the punches, expect glitches and have fun. The more you do it the easier it will become for most.
- A drive by activity is one where women can drive by and either grab a treat, a hand out or do a short activity. Often it can be held in a church parking lot or in front of someone’s home.
- Encourage wearing masks if needed in your area.
- If you can- meet outside where there is plenty of space to social distance. If possible you may be able to do several different activities while staying six feet apart.
- Even drive-by activities allow you the opportunity to see your sister’s faces. To visit and connect. Even small interactions can make a big difference.
Virtual and Drive-By Relief Society Activities
There are so many fun games you can play virtually using Zoom. Have the Zoom host assign break out rooms so you can play in smaller in groups.
Choose a book for everyone to read and then gather on Zoom to discuss the book. Choose a few people to come prepared for questions and conversation starters about the book. Break out rooms would work well for this, too. Switch the groups up when a new question is discussed.

Church History sites like Nauvoo are giving virtual tours right now. Many young missionaries are in charge and they would love for you to participate! You can call and set up an appointment or use one of their prerecorded videos. Start by heading to theChurch’s websitethen head to each of their Facebook pages to see what is available. Watch together over Zoom as a Relief Society.

Would You Rather Questions
You could enjoy this game virtually or six-feet apart if possible.这个网站has some clean, family friendly church related questions that will spark great conversation.
Have several women take a few minutes to share a skill. This can be done virtually in real-time or done pre-recorded. Different skills could include: how to make frosting, how to decorate a cake, how to change a tire, how to start an online business, how to use Instagram or Facebook, how to cut hair, how to create an Instagram Reel, etc. The possibilities are endless
Ask each sister to send in a short 30 second clip of them introducing themselves, sharing a talent, or something unique. Compile all the clips into a video that can be played over Zoom.
Have everyone come to the Zoom prepared to auction something off. This could be a baked good, craft, favorite soap, etc. or a service (babysitting, cooking a meal, teach them how to do something) and then assign everyone a certain amount of points. Assign someone to be the auctioneer and then go through each person and auction their items off.
You could also do this in-person, socially distancing while outside.
Have each sister come prepared to share a talent or show off a skill. If they prefer, they could pre-record it and the Zoom meeting host can share their screen to be watched together.
Pick a theme and have everyone come to Zoom prepared to chit chat and relax. Different themes could include:
- wear a silly hat
- wear silly socks
- dress up as your favorite character
- pajama night
This is sure to break the ice! Use the breakout rooms for smaller groups to be able to visit. Switch every five minutes or so to insure everyone is given the chance to talk to different people. Most women just want to visit and catch up- especially since we haven’t been able to go to in-person church or Relief Society for so long.
