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.
A Touch of Faith
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. This Readers Theatre script parallels the lives of two women; the biblical woman who suffered with bleeding for 12 years; and the modern day woman who is suffering with breast cancer. They recount their struggle to deal with their condition and reflect on how they came to a decision to put their faith in Jesus for their healing. This is a great script to perform in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Mr. Andrews is in need of hope. He is struggling through life and doesn’t know where to turn. He calls the Hope Hot-line looking for answers. He talks with Prayer and agrees to place his hope in God, but when his needs are not met, after a few weeks, he calls back to talk with Prosperity, then Possessions. Nine months later, his life is worse than before and he comes to realize Prayer’s advice (to put his faith in God) was right all along.
