Patty invites a friend to church

Originally written as part of a set for LifeWay's "Game Day Central: Where Heroes Are Made," this skits focuses on how to become a hero both on and off the field by focusing on Jesus and following God's plan for your life.   Each skit can be used separately, since the concepts don't build on each other from day to day. Each day introduces an idea of what it takes to be a true hero, while using the backdrop of various sports events.

Excerpt (Sample)

Jill:                   So, have you talked to Sharon yet about coming to church with us and playing on the volleyball team? 

Patty:               Not yet.  I’ve been waiting for the right time. 

Jill:                   Well, that time might be now.  She’s coming over here. 

Patty:               I’m not sure what to say her. 

Jill:                   Just tell her what you told me when I first joined the team. 

Patty:               But it was easier with you. 

Jill:                   Why? 

Patty:               Because I knew you went to church already. I don’t think Sharon has ever been to church. 

Jill:                   Maybe no one has ever invited her before. 

Patty:               What if she laughs at me? 

Jill:                   Then she laughs.  A little laughter never hurt anyone. 

Patty:               I’m nervous. 

Jill:                   Do you think God wants you to ask her to come to church with us? 

Patty:               Yes. 

Jill:                   Then He’ll give you the strength to do it.  Besides, I’ll be right here to support you.  I’ll help in any way I can. 

Patty:               Thanks, Jill.  You’re a good friend.

Sharon enters 

Sharon:           Hey you two, what’s up? 

Patty:               (hesitates) Umm….ummm… 

Jill:                   (interjecting) We were just talking about volleyball.  Right, Patty? 

Patty:               Right. 

Sharon:           Volleyball?  I love volleyball!  It’s my favorite sport. 

Patty:               I remember you talking about that in class one day.  I’m sorry you couldn’t play on the school’s team this year.  

Jill:                   Yeah, you must have been really bummed when you broke your arm and couldn’t play. 

Sharon:           I was, but I guess there’s always next year.  

Patty:               Or maybe there’s still time this year. 

Sharon:           But volleyball season is over at school. 

Patty:               I wasn’t talking about at school. 

Sharon:           Where else could I play?  (excited) Does the community center have a team? 

Jill:                   Not that we know of. 

Sharon:           (disappointed) Oh.  

Jill:                   But there is somewhere else in town you would be more than welcome to play.
