Handling Hypocrites [skit]


Brief: A drama based on  Luke 18:9-14 - Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector


Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - May 18, 2019

[Philip, A very formally dressed man comes in, and speaks poshly, Tanner, a shabbily dressed bikey is in their view]

Philip: Oh, my lordy! Who is that man? What is he doing in here? Is he lost, or come in here to cause trouble? Where are those deacons when you need them. I hope they're not scratching my Volvo while moving those visitor parking signs which were in my spot. I hope they come and remove that man before I give my big offering today. I wouldn't want him stealing it as it passes by him.
What's with that scribbling all over his arms. Tattoos should not be allowed in the sanctuary. Mark of the beast, indeed. You won't find a tattoo on me, except for the name of the Lord on my heart.

Presence for Mothers [Children's Story]

Brief: Mother’s Day children’s story

Performance:
Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - May 11, 2019


I’d like only the children who have ever had a mummy to come down the front please.

( while waiting: Who in the audience has ever had a mother? A grandmother? Great grandmother... related to Eve?)

Who here has, or has had a mum?

Have any of you ever made something for your mum for Mother’s Day?

Did it have hearts on it?

Why did you put hearts on your present?

If you had all the money in the world - what would you give your mum for Mother’s Day?

[ask every child individually]

What giving her
  • about a flower farm, so you mother always has roses
  • a shopping center
  • a Ferrari
  • the Sydney Opera House so she can go to all the shows, or perform herself
  • a cruise ship
  • a tropical island resort. So she can get her hair done, nails done, eyebrows and eyelashes done, legs done, her lips done..
    Disneyland

Do you know what the two most favorite things in the whole world your mum would like from you.

The second most favorite - is for you to love her.

What do you think the MOST favorite thing would be?

The thing your mother would like most from you is for you to love Jesus.

Why is that the BEST gift your mum could ever want from you - you loving Jesus?
Why is it Better than a tropical island as a gift. [or other things mentioned by the kids]

When Jesus comes back your mum will have to leave behind the tropical islands and other gifts you've given her.

BUT if she loves Jesus, and YOU love Jesus, then you can be together forever and ever and ever. And that's what your mother would love most from you. to be together forever.

That's Not The Reason [Mother's day skit]

Brief: A mothers day skit
Performance: Castle Hill Adventurers - May 4, 2019

Narrator: Good afternoon everyone, and welcome to “ancient mysteries solved” - where we answer life's most difficult questions.
We trust you enjoyed our previous lessons on where missing socks go, and how you can convince them to return home.
Today we will explain an ancient mystery to do with Mothers. That is:
Have you ever wondered why mothers get breakfast in bed, and hugs and flowers and cards and crafts with love hearts on them on Mother’s day? Well, we have the answer.
You may think it’s because they spend nine months carrying a bowling ball in their tummy.

Mum: Oh my back!

Narrator: But that’s not the reason.
Often during pregnancy the mother to be can feel quite sick

Mum: Stand back everyone!! SPEW!

Each skit:

Two people sitting around at a retirement home, one with a newspaper (N), the other a Bible (B), with scripts on them if acting live.
Slow to speak and even slower to reply to each other for effect there could be a literal 4-5 second gap between lines as the elderly process the thought and come up with a response. Make the skit about 5 mins
Can be live or pre recorded - Can be same or different couples - Can be any combination of genders


THE VINE


(video intro)

B: Hey [insert elderly person name]

[remember 4-5 second delay for slow thinking EVERY time...]

N: Yeah?

B: Wha-da-ya-reckon Jesus meant when He said ‘I am the true vine’?

N: Dunno.... You sure it says ‘Vine’?

B: Yeah, I am the true vine.

N: Where’s it say that?

B: In John... chapter 15.... verse 1

N: Maybe he was pointing out that he had skinny legs, like a grape vine?

N: Or maybe his skin was flaky like the bark of a grape vine... and was encouraging people to moisturise?

What a Friend [Church Welcome]


Brief: A church service welcome

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - April 6, 2019


[What a friend we have in Jesus is sung by the church first]

What a friend we have in Jesus.

Who here IS a friend of Jesus?

I see a few of you didn’t put up your hands. You’re probably like me:

I’m keen to be a friend of Jesus, but when I went looking, I couldn’t find His Facebook account to friend him. Not an official account anyway so maybe he doesn’t really have an account.

If Jesus were on Facebook, do you think he would send a friend request to EVERYONE in the world? It’s then just up to us to accept his friend request. And we can invite others to be his friend too. Share his posts.

Safe Seats [Church Welcome]

Brief: A church service Welcome
Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - May 18, 2019

Welcome to castle hill seventh day Adventist Church this morning.

If you’re a regular attender here, you’re probably all settled in your usual seating area by now. However...

If you’re a visitor it can be hard to know where to sit.

You know when you visit a new city and you don’t know where all the unsafe areas are.

Well, if this is your first time here you can’t possibly know where all the badly behaved people are sitting in our congregation. So I’m going to help you by holding a little survey and you can take notes.

I’m NOT going to ask who’s done what. But I am going to survey you all to see what punishments you’ve been through and that will give an indication of where the naughty people are?

Hands up who here has:
  1. Sent to room
  2. Write lines
  3. detention
  4. Suspended
  5. Expelled
  6. Cane
  7. Strap
  8. Smack
  9. Phone, tablet or game console banned for a period of time.
  10. Been put into stocks in the town center?
  11. who’s Never been punished (you will be required to wash the oven trays after church lunch today)
Wow so in conclusion, we’ve got quite a naughty collection of people here.

And despite the rumors, sitting up the balcony with the youth is where you are least likely to get pick pocketed!



Welcome to everyone here, a place where you’re all accepted, to worship a father in heaven who freely forgives you, and with great sincerity We hope everyone is drawn closer to our loving father in heaven today - that, and that no one finds today’s service too punishing. - no pressure Pr.

Blessings to you all.
