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.
GPS – God Positioning System
A teenage boy (David) recently received his driver’s license. He is about to drive (down the Road of Life) alone for the first time. David’s mother installed a new God Positioning System (GPS) in his car to help guide his life’s journey. Unfortunately, David fails to follow the GPS’ instructions. He makes several wrong turns (i.e., bad decisions in life) which take him to unknown and dangerous places. After realizing he is lost and headed for the Road of “Destruction”, David decides to listen to his GPS to help him get to the Road of “Life”. God Positioning System is a powerful sketch for a Youth Ministry.

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.
Like a Good Savior
This sketch is parody of the State Farm Insurance commercial, featuring the popular jingle, “Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm Is There”. A woman is struggling to pay her bills. She just can’t seem to get ahead financially. She needs help, so she calls on the Lord, “Like a Good Savior, Jesus is There”. Immediately, Jesus shows up to help her get through her financial crisis.
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.
