Seeds of the Harvest - Comedy/Drama

$10.00

Characters: 8 Length: 5-8 minutes more info and to purchase

The seeds are alive and giving Farmer a hard time! It's planting season but the seeds don't want to wait for the great soil Farmer is preparing for them, since they want to be planted NOW!  Much to Farmer's horror, the seeds begin to get rebellious and start jumping into the first soil they find. It's not apparent to them at first, but their lives are about to get complicated and filled with poking thorns, hungry birds, and unyielding rocks.    Only one seed has heeded Farmer's warning and as the others begin to struggle, they wish they would have listened and waited.

A fun take based on the parable of the sower found in Matthew 13:3-9.

Two cows, Bessie and Mabel can't seem to understand why humans feel the need to celebrate a whole festival about plants.  After all, they muse, "everyone knows God made animals more superior than plants." However, Sunny, a very snooty sunflower, disagree and fires back: "You obviously don't know how important my kind is to the farmers.  Plants are better than animals any day!" Thus begins the battle between the two species.  It takes a very energetic but smart little calf named Dottie to clear up the matter, citing that no one species is superior and that God intended for us all to work together.

Written in light-hearted rhyme, this "fable" type skit openly shows the concept of "reaping what you sow."  A mother has 3 children who like to play and laugh but when it comes to work, only one of them sees the benefits of balancing work and play.  The other two like to complain and whine, while at the same time receiving all the benefits of someone else's hard labor. When economic times get tough and putting food on the table becomes even harder, a wise mother gets an idea: she tells each of her children to plant seeds in a garden and nurture it and watch it grow.  But, she warns: they will reap whatever they sow.

Jack of All Trades -

$10.00

Characters: 5 Length: 8-10 minutes more info and to purchase

When Tony, a young and eager seminary student, shows up to job shadow Pastor Jack for the day, he learns that a pastor must possess more skills than just knowing the Bible and counseling people.  Jack tells Tony that a pastor must have a sense of humor to deal with some of the day-to-day craziness; have the patience of Job; and drive a car with good gas mileage.  And it's not just the pastor, but the pastor's wife as well: she should probably love kids, know how to cook and be as flexible as a rubberband.  Essentially, a pastor is a "jack of all trades," not only knowing the Bible but knowing how to fix leaky toilets and broken door knobs as well. When Tony asks Pastor Jack if it's all worth it, Jack responds honestly by saying "yes."  When Tony has his doubts, Jack shows Tony a hand-written note he received from a church member, detailing how if it wasn't for Pastor Jack and his wife, she would never have come to know Christ.  And according to Pastor Jack, "that's what makes it all worthwhile."

Characters: 4 Length: 5-8 minutes more info and to purchase

Set back in Bible times, when a pastor retires from the church to pursue a new and different lifestyle (becoming a shepherd), it's up to the church's search committee to find a suitable replacement.  They throw around names like Moses, Solomon and Samson but they each have various "flaws" that prevent them from being an ideal pastor: Moses gets nervous in front of people and stutters; Solomon has too many wives to house in the church parsonage; and Samson is single and a hippie!  It seems that no person is right for their church, until they remember someone who would be perfect for the job: YOUR pastor.  By using a "fill in the blank" system, this skit allows you to insert the name of your current pastor and honor him/her by speaking of the traits you admire and appreciate most about them.  This humorous skit pays homage to some of the most memorable Bible characters, but leaves room for you to customize and pay tribute to your current pastor.  Perfect for Pastor Appreciation Day or any time you want to give your pastor some encouragement.

Enter Into His Gates - Comedy

$10.00

Characters: 10 Length: 5-8 minutes more info and to purchase

Based on Psalm 100: "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name."

With a funny take on the Psalm, a group of students misinterpret the overall meaning and "heart" of the scripture, as they are all waiting to enter into His gates and courts:

-Fred is dressed as a pilgrim and has a picnic basket full of thanksgiving dinner items because he can't think of "entering his gates with thanksgiving" with any more spirit than this

-Fiona feels giving praise means showering those around her with compliments

-Sherry goes overboard in her thankfulness, being thankful from everything from her feet to how wonderfully a basket is woven

-Louis is dressed and ready to play basketball because he thinks God's "courts" are basketball courts, while Barb is ready to play tennis, and Kurt is preparing a case for a courtroom

-Leah randomly shouts out strange but silly words, while trying to make joyful noises

-And Ben sings crazy songs at random because he believes he should enter God's presence with singing

Meanwhile, Mona is trying quietly to read a book, but when she notices her friends acting "nuts" she feels it necessary to step in and set them straight on the TRUE meaning of the scriptures.  But the friends aren't buying it and think she's the crazy one for not being fully prepared.

When Linda answers her door to find a policeman standing there, she automatically assumes the worst; however, after several assurances that her family members are alive and well, she finds the real reason the policeman is at her door.  It seems Linda and her family have not been thankful enough over the last several months (and in some cases years), and the Department of Thankful Living has sent an officer to their home to investigate.  The officer opens his record book and begins to find a list of "crimes," mainly due to ingratitude and negativity.  For instance, the teenage daughter failed to be thankful for the new haircut that finally got her noticed by the boy she likes at school; Linda complained about having to buy a new wardrobe after her recent weight loss ("I look like a Shar-pei puppy when I get dressed!") instead of being thankful for her new physique; and Dan complains about everything from the neighbor's barking dog to the fact that his wife spends too much money.  Once the officer compiles the evidence, the family is charged with various crimes such as "Petty Theft" and "Robbery"--Stealing the smallest joys out of life and robbing yourself and others of true happiness and contentment; and "Attempted Murder": Attempting to kill thankfulness by smothering it with negativity.

$10.00

Characters: 5 Length: 8-12 minutes more info and to purchase

This skit is a take-off of the "Flower Power Peace Movement" of the 60's & 70's, and uses flowers as actual characters to symbolize our need for God's peace, love, healing and protection in our lives today. 

The skit opens in Garden Paradise, home of the Master Gardener, caretaker of all flowers.  Blue Bonnet and Daisy have decided to launch a protest against all florist shops, holding up signs that read "We shall not wilt!" and "Flowers were meant to grow free!" They want to send messages to the florists and their supporters, letting them know they are tired of seeing innocent flowers sent to their deaths.  Says Blue Bonnet, "How many more flowers have to shrivel up and die as part of these "arrangements"?  She wants to put an end to the senseless killings.  Meanwhile, AWOL flowers Black Eyed Susan, Baby's Breath and Wall Flower escape to the Garden Paradise, in search of the Master Gardener, if he even exists. They are seeking healing and shelter from the flower shops they've escaped from.  They long to live in a meadow where they can be free but question whether or not such a thing is possible for wildflowers like them. It is up to Blue Bonnet and Daisy to convince them of the love, peace and harmony the Master Gardener can bring into their lives.  

Using song bits, and phrases & references from the 70's, as well as combining both humor and drama, this skit will resonate with you in one way or another.  Perhaps you're a fan of flowers or the 70's, or just need to be reminded of God's love and peace.  In any case, this skit will make you think, smile and thank God for his involvement in your life.

The Cure - Comedy/Drama

$10.00

Characters: 4 Length: 8-10 minutes more info and to purchase

Dr. Chase, a hot shot young doctor, implies that her colleague, Dr. Nora, may be too old to continue to practice medicine. But when the Administrator finds fault with some recent case files, the finger seems to be pointed in Dr. Chase's direction.  It seems Dr. Chase was so eager to cure the symptoms, she often overlooked the underlying cause of the symptoms. For instance, what should have been a simple prescription for Mother-in-Law-itis (when the mother-in-law overstays her welcome) turned into a trip to a heart specialist, a bone doctor and enrollment in an anger management program.  It seems "book smarts" isn't the same as life experience, and sometimes you have to look past the symptoms in order to find the cure.  Therfore, the Administrator assigns Dr. Nora to a be a medical mentor for Dr. Chase to help teach her what the medical books can't.  However, both doctors realize they have a lot to learn when a friend of Dr. Nora's shows up for an exam and is diagnosed with a terminal illness called Mask disease: hiding behind a mask so others won't find out about your past or who you really are. In the end, both doctors wonder why it took them so long to find a cure for the disease and speculate on whether or not it's too late to help Dr. Nora's friend.  

This skit uses the medical field as a metaphor for sin and spiritual healing.  It reminds us that we all have problems, we all need each other, and that spiritual healing can only happen if we are open and honest with ourselves and others.

These Shoes Were Made for Walking - Comedy

$10.00

Characters: 8 Length: 8-10 minutes more info and to purchase

Set at the bus stop, several pairs of high heel shoes come and go.  The shoes symbolize various types of women in their individual walks of life.  By listening to their tales at the bus stop, we get a glimpse of the kind of lives each woman (shoe) leads. Our cast of characters include:

Gracie, an average high heel who likes to volunteer at church, even though it isn't Sunday. 

Charlotte, a business shoe and workaholic, who is always on the go.

Kay, the "plain jane" high heel who volunteers at the soup kitchen because she likes to help people.

Marla, the teenager who disguised herself as a sneaker to "sneak" out of the house but then reveals her true identity as a hip, young high heel, dressed to go to a party.

Dee, a single sexy "slingback" in search of the perfect man shoe.

Tiffany, the rich and fancy high heel who shops and lays by the pool all day sipping shoe polish.

Jan, the sophisticated cobbler who goes back to the shoe hospital after hours in order to comfort a sick child (a pair of pink Crocs).

Cora, the elder who has traded in her high heels for a pair of orthopedic shoes.

Through the wisdom of Cora, who can think straight now that she's "actually getting some blood flow to her brain" we learn some of the lessons that life has taught her.  For instance, "Life doesn't always turn out like you planned, so you've got to walk the road you've been given." And, "You can either get out there and make a difference in this world or you can sit at home in your closet, waiting for the world to come to you.  Either way, you've got to decide: 'Where will my high heels take me?' The choice is up to you."

Great for any kinds of women's ministries, this skit reminds us that our choices are up to us, and that life is what we make it.

Four women at various stages of life come together at Stepping Stones, a local women's ministry.  At first their reasons for attending appear somewhat "superficial" but underneath each woman there is a desperate need to "connect." Mary, an "empty-nester" who can't quit sobbing uncontrollably, is actually seeking friendship and just someone to "chat" with; Bess, a middle-aged woman with two teen boys who "need a lot of prayer", claims to only be there for the refreshments since her boys "eat her out of house and home"; Sarah, who thinks a class titled "Sweeter than Chocolate" is about eating desserts (when in actuality it is a study in Psalms), just needs a break because she is a young mom with 3 toddlers under the age of 4; and Ruth who is 83 and keeps falling asleep, thinks she's there to play Bingo.  Though these women are at different ages, have different backgrounds and lifestyles, and have come to Stepping Stones for various reasons, one thing remains the same for each of them: they each have a deep desire for fellowship and community with other Godly women, which by the end of the skit they are convinced they will find.
