These skits are written to be performed during a church service with a minimum of props and costuming. They are designed for those as young as fifth grade although they are appropriate for adults as well, especially "Passover", "Evening 'Good' News", and "Youth Retreat". Each skit is approximately 10 minutes in length.
Dinner With The King engages young people through creative, down-to-earth settings that draw from important biblical images and theological understandings of Holy Communion. These chancel dramas are imaginative, playful, and allow for wide participation. They get at the heart of Christian understanding in an accessible way. This is a fun and valuable tool.Peter StrommenBishop, Northeastern Minnesota SynodEvangelical Lutheran Church in AmericaHere's a set of six chancel dramas that will captivate young people (and the entire congregation) while helping them to learn the deeper significance of the sacramental meal at the heart of Christian worship -- and what it means to be invited guests at the Lord's Table. Originally conceived for middle-school age youth, these flexible pieces can be adapted for any size group; some can even be performed by adults. Minimal props and costumes are required, so the sketches are perfect for smaller churches -- yet they lend themselves to more elaborate presentation as well. These insightful dramas are excellent not only for presentation during worship, but also for congregational programs, youth nights, classroom instruction, or individual devotional reading.Titles include: * Dinner With The King* Passover* Jesus Food* Partytime* Youth Retreat* The Evening Good NewsGary W.
