Publisher's Description

Looking for a novel approach to the children's sermon -- something more creative than a simple story or object lesson? This collection of 40 dramatic sketches in readers' theater format will teach your young people about the events of Jesus' life -- while also actively involving your members in the worship service. Each scene vividly relates a story from the gospels in easy-to-read dialogue that can be performed with minimal rehearsal by teenagers or adults -- providing a memorable illustration that's certain to captivate the attention of everyone in your congregation. Discussion questions accompany each skit, so you can maximize the educational value by focusing youngsters' attention on the main themes. Ideal for use during the "children's moment" in Sunday morning worship, these brief pieces are also a perfect resource for children's church, Vacation Bible School, youth meetings, and many other settings.
Sketches include:
- Jesus And The Shepherds Of Bethlehem
- Jesus And The Devil
- Jesus Preaches In Nazareth
- Jesus' Parable Of The Prodigal Son
- Jesus And The Rich Young Man
- Jesus Predicts Things To Come
- Jesus In The Upper Room
- Jesus On The Road To Emmaus
... and many more
