Here is the Christmas Jeopardy game I made for our Women of Faith Christmas Brunch. Feel free to use it if you like. We divided into two groups, and each person took a turn choosing a category and point level but they had to come up with one question per group. I say question because as you know, in Jeopardy, the host gives the answer and they must answer in the form of a question. For example: Answer: She was Jesus mother. Question: Who was Mary? You can try it yourself. The answers are in the top section and the questions in the bottom section. The women seemed to enjoy playing it and they said they learned some things, too. Enjoy.
