What's DOUBLE DOG Dare-A-Thon?
Students will complete six super fun, totally crazy (and safe!) dares with their friends, then take a picture of their completed dare and submit them through our website. We'll pick a winner for each dare (for each campus and service) and the whole team could win an awesome prize during weekend services.
How to Play
1. INVITE SOME FRIENDS OVER - Friday, April 13 – Sunday, April 15
Invite some friends over to complete the dares with you—or invite them to complete the dares at home on their own if you aren't able to get together. Teams should have three to six students. Dares will be available from 4 p.m. on Friday until 7 a.m. on Sunday.
2. COMPLETE THE DARES
On the afternoon of Friday, April 13, this page will have all of the dares available. To begin, just click on the Dare #1 button, fill out the registration form with your team name and the number of people on your team. Then, follow the directions to complete the dares and upload your picture to this site.
**Dare must be completed at least two hours before your service time
3. COME TO MSM SMALL GROUPS SERVICE
To find out if your team has won, come back to MSM Small Groups with your team during the weekend services. We're going to have a Double Dog Dare-A-Thon party to celebrate the winners, play some games, hear a message about Jesus and connect in a small group.
This year you can complete all six dares with items you already have around your house. If you have shoes, spoons, winter gear (like hats and gloves) and a phone to take pictures with, you’ll be all set!

A: You can have as many people on your team as you like, but we recommend groups of three to six. (If you have a large group, consider splitting into two smaller groups.) Prizes are best for up to six per team.
Q: Is this something I should do with my MSM small group?
