Gossip, Anger and Envy are on their first assignment to "tear down" a woman named Jane.  One by one, they knock on her door asking her to let them come in.  She resists at first, recognizing them for what they are.  However, when Satan comes to check on his "minions" he tells them they have to use a disguise if they want to get "in," saying if humans are unaware of who you really are, "they will welcome you in with open arms."  When the trio comes back disguised as a Prayer Warrior, Love, and Success, Jane does exactly as Satan had predicted: she welcomed them in.  It doesn't take long for Jane to begin succumbing to an "evil" way of thinking, and the trio is happy until Jesus shows up, knocking on the door, requesting some private time with Jane.  The demons begin to tremble as Jesus reveals who they really are, and Jane finally realizes the only voice she must be tuned into belongs to Jesus.

They provide hot chocolate on chilly evenings, park benches for parents to sit on and much more.  Now, the whole neighborhood is catching this new Halloween fever!  Can it really be true that God can even use something like Halloween to reach His people?  Barb seems to think so, because as the old saying goes, "the proof is in the pudding."

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.

Deciding not to air the story, Carol instead simply breathes in the most holy night of all. The ending to this skit has the opportunity for the manger scene to be presented, and the director has the choice to end it there or sing any song or hymn of his/her choice.

The only problem is they are having a hard time coming up with an idea that will not appear scary, creepy, freaky, strange, weird, or bizarre to the earthlings.  One angel wants to send Mary a letter announcing “You may have already been selected to carry God’s child! and another angel thinks impersonating a sheep to tell the shepherds about Jesus' arrival is a good idea.  In the end, one angel suggests simply appearing to them and telling them not to be afraid might be the best solution.  Zuriel likes the idea but the others feel the humans will never "go for it,"  so Zuriel is left to take matters into her own hands.

It would be a quiet night at the stable in Bethlehem except that the animals can't sleep. It seems that a bright and mysterious light is shining through the window; not to mention the large crowd of people that have gathered in the city over the last few days.  With a strange "vibe" felt in the air, Mac (horse), Buford (cow) and Sheba (sheep) wonder what's going on.  Then Remmy, a small donkey from Nazareth, enters the building.  She's tired after her long journey and looks forward to her bed of hay. However, when her masters, Joseph and Mary, also show up in the stable, it seems Remmy has some explaining to do to the other animals. Remmy begins to clear up the mystery of why a bright star has suddenly appeared in the sky: "It's sign," she says, "that a King is coming." But the other animals misunderstand Remmy's reference to a "King" and they begin to prepare for a visit from Royalty, by polishing their hooves and combing their wool.  When the animals discover that the "King" is a baby, they are disappointd at first but then realize they are witness to a historical event: the birth of a savior. 

Told from the animal's point of view, before the wise men or shepherds came, the Christmas Story, is presented in a completely unique and different way, yet the overall meaning remains the same: Jesus birth is truly a miracle to behold.

"When Oprah Gail Winfrey was born to unwed parents in a samll town in Mississippi, the world didn't take much notice.  No one could have predicted that a small, poor, black girl would grow up to be one of the richest, most powerful and influential women in history." 

And so begins this skit, a tribute to Oprah Winfrey and the contributions to the world she has had made throughout her lifetime.  This skit takes you through 3 "scenes" in Oprah's life.  The first is when Oprah was 6 years old,  preparing to "preach" in her Grandma's church.  Though life on the farm with her Grandma was primitive, (there was no running water or electricity) Little Oprah was happy, reading and reciting poetry and scriptures.  But her world is about to change, as she finds out when a teenage version of herself shows up to "warn" her about events to come. It seems that in "not so distant years," events will change Oprah's happy childhood into one filled with hurt, anger and rebellion.  "But," says Teen Oprah, "the darkenss won't last forever, and you will survive.  Just remember, God is watching over you." The scene then changes to an angry teenage Oprah who wonders how God could allow such atrocities to happen to her.  Just as she is shouting her wrath at God for abandoning her, an adult version of Oprah in her 50's appears to tell her not to give up, and that help is on the way--her life is about to change once more.  Adult Oprah shares just a hint of what is on the way for this teen girl, giving her enough courage to face another day:  "One day the sun will shine on you so brightly, you will feel its warmth with you wherever you go."  The scene changes one last time, as Adult Oprah now comes face to face with the elderly version of herself at age 92.  Just when Oprah thinks she has finally been "used up," she is informed that even at age 92, there is still work to be done. 

By Oprah's own admission, she prayed a prayer at one time in her life:  "God, use me until I'm all used up."  This skit emphasizes that theme, and in the end, based on the successes and accomplishments Oprah as achieved, ponders the idea, "What would happen in our own lives, and in our world, if we ALL prayed such a prayer?"
