In 9 skits, the children learn what a missionary does as they watch Clem and her family prepare to go to the mission field. The “call,” the emotional leaving, the home “support team,” the letters, and the joys and pains of missionary work all challenge the cast and children to actively serve God. Tina learns that you don't have to leave home to be a missionary when she leads her friend to Lord.
Vol. 13 – The Missionary
This volume of nine Skit Packages helps children realize that “lost” people are all around them, and they don’t have to go off to a far away mission field to be a missionary. A missionary is one who obeys God’s Great Commission and shares the Good News of the Gospel with everyone he or she meets.
In this volume, Clem and her family go to the mission field, and the rest of the characters become her support team. It is thrilling for everyone except Tina, who has a major faith crisis because she in convinced that God loves Clem more than He loves her because Clem is a “real” missionary.
Rufus helps Tina realize that the mission field is right here at home, too! She models how to lead people to the Lord and confidently states that children can become missionaries, too, even if they have to stay home! Use this volume of Christian drama scripts for children to challenge the children to be evangelists and missionaries at school, home, or in their neighborhoods.
Skits In this Volume
- Skit Package 1: “What Is A Missionary?” (Matthew 28: 19, 20)
The children learn just what a missionary is and what he does when he’s home on furlough. Tina’s confusion provides a hilarious background for learning what a missionary really does.
- Skit Package 2: “The Missionary’s Job” (James 1: 27)
While packing the missionary boxes, the characters learn some of the interesting and varied jobs that a missionary performs on the mission field.
- Skit Package 3: “The Call To The Mission Field” (Matthew 16: 24, 25)
Clem’s parents consider that they may be called to the mission field. Prayer and fasting are explained here as well as what a “call from God” really means.
- Skit Package 4: “Where Shall I Go?” (Matthew 5: 14-16)
There are so many ways a missionary can be used. Where should Clem and her family serve is the big question answered in this skit.
- Skit Package 5: “The Support Team” (2 Thessalonians 3: 1, 2)
Harvey, Zelda, Clem, and Pastor Rufus all become part of Clem’s support team in the areas of fund raising, newsletter writing, and prayer.
- Skit Package 6: “The Full Armor Of God” (Ephesians 6: 10-17)
No one can be expected to fight the spiritual battles and win in his own power. We need the armor of God to protect us. Clem is given various pieces of it at her going away party.
- Skit Package 7: “Be A Home Missionary” (Acts 1: 8; Luke 10: 2)
Through Tina’s determination to become a missionary too, the children learn that you don’t have to go far away to be a missionary. You can become a missionary where ever there are people who have not heard about Jesus.
