instant skits

Our family used to love to do puppet shows, dress up and skits. What fun we had. For two summers we even did puppet shows at Spirit West Coast to share the gospel with kids. This was a memory that will last a lifetime.

Why not encourage your family to make this kind of memory this summer. Grab a copy of the book Instant Skits for Children’s Ministry, and gather together your kids and their friends to do a neighborhood skit and perform it for your family and friends.

Instant Skits for Children’s Ministry will make the process pain free.  Author John Duckworth teaches everyone how to perform these 30 simple skits quickly and easily! At 5-10 minutes each, Bible-based message can be told regardless of the acting ability of the kids.

Build confidence in your children, as they use the simple facial-expression symbols beside each line to put the right feeling into each line. Words that should be spoken with emphasis are printed in caps.

You will get:

  • Suggestions for expanding the message of each script with Scripture readings and discussion points.
  • Suggestions for tying in to other topics.
  • Directions for stage setup.
  • Puppet adaptations.
  • Scripture and Topic indexes.

Thank you John Duckworth for “Instant Skits for Children’s Ministry.” A summer of wonderful memories is sure to follow for those kids that perform these skits.
