We Are The Church
What is the church? Is it the physical building we go to on Sunday morning? That’s the perception of many. This Readers Theater presentation explains that God’s church is not a building, but the body of believers in Jesus Christ.
Mary and Elizabeth
Pregnancies today may not be as miraculous as Mary’s and Elizabeth’s; however, all pregnancies are gifts from God. In this beautiful sketch, the virgin Mary goes to visit Elizabeth and they proclaim the joy of their pregnancy through a musical duet.
A mother is temporarily reunited with her daughter after a tragic accident. Through ensuing dialogue we learn they are both deceased. Due to her daughter’s lifestyle, the mother thinks her daughter can’t get into Heaven, however to the surprise of the mother, she realizes that she is the one who can’t enter Heaven (because she never accepted Christ), not her daughter.
Two church members are fishing on a pier. In the course of their conversation, Charles expresses concern that the church is attracting a lot of people with personal problems. While they are talking, Deacon Wilson repeatedly catches fish and throws them back into the water. Eventually, Deacon Wilson explains that he is looking for a fish that has already been cleaned inside and out. Charles realizes there is no such thing as a “clean fish”; after you catch the fish, then you can clean it. Deacon Wilson helps Charles understand that new members are like that. They may come with many problems and issues but God is able to change them just like He changed us.
The Christmas Star
A Little Star was never assigned a job to do. As Jesus leaves Heaven to be born on earth, he notices the star sitting all alone. Jesus gives the little star the most important job of all, letting the world know that a Savior was born.
This is a wonderful Readers Theater presentation for little children and youth. There are no lines to learn or memorize. The dialog is read by the storyteller. The children simply follow the movement as read in the story.
The Christmas Chair
A warehouse employee is taking a post-holiday inventory of Christmas props when she approaches Santa’s Christmas Chair. The chair brings back memories of her childhood and how she placed her faith in Santa to supply her needs. Now that she is an adult, she realizes that she must have the same child-like faith and trust in Jesus. This sketch is a great post-Christmas presentation.
