CLOWNING:

The clown character can be a valid vehicle through which to worship Christ Jesus. As a clown, you can tell the truth of the Gospel while bringing joy and laughter to those around you. For people to accept the clown we must also do it with a childlike faith just as it takes childlike faith to accept salvation, giving the clown the perfect tools to teach salvation. As a clown you can leave behind your own faults standing before your audience a new person you can draw them in and show, first hand, how much of God’s love we can bring to others in just a very short time.

ENTERTAIN OUR GUEST:

Entertain and help others pass the time while waiting in line for church events such as Trunk-or-Treat, and the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

AWANA COUNCIL TIME:

Entertain and education the AWANA children by presenting a Gospel message in a unique way.

PUPPETS

A puppet allows you to interact with people on a personal level without actually having to confront them . Stories can be told. Information can be shared. All while you the presenter, remain anonymous.  Puppets attract and  captures attention.  They can convey feelings and emotions as well as facts; while at the same time being non-judgmental (an important characteristic when telling non-believers about the Gospel).

BALLOONS:

Balloons always attract attention.There is no better conversation starter than a balloon     transformed by twisting into the shape of an     animal, A pocket full of balloons and a pump and you are a walking talking advertisement for the Gospel or for those prepared to spread the Word.

CHILDREN'S SERMONS

Present Children’s Sermons during Sunday Morning Worship.

BIBLE SCHOOL:

Use your talents to make Vacation Bible School a memorable experience.

GOSPEL MAGIC:

When we talk about Gospel Magic , we are not advocating or using mystical arts or calling on spirits. We are talking about things like slight of hand and optical illusions, which are easily explained and can be used to enforce a point or to draw attention to the Gospel presenter.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH:

Performing for local groups such as , the
Senior Citizen’s Center, Nursing homes, and Day Care Centers.Spreading the love of our Savior Jesus Christ.

VENTRILOQUIST:

Ventriloquist make puppets come alive.

JUGGLING:

The juggler can not only use his skills of keeping objects flying through the air, to entertain but, as his art is perfected he can combine his juggling with a story line.  The juggler can then relate the movement of his objects to the   Gospel message he is presenting, making the message unforgettable.

CHALK ART:

All of us at one time or another drawn with chalk on paper or concrete. With the skilled artist, telling a story in art can mesmerize an audience.  Controlling their attention  and  locking a message indelibly in their minds.  With the use of special lighting and music the effect is even stronger.  An additional benefit is that the finished artwork can be treasured long after the performance

STORYTELLING:

The ability to spin a good story is critical our creative ministry effort.  Every performance falls flat without a good story.  Sometimes a single voice can have a greater impact than any other performance. Jesus consistently used stories (remember the parables)  to make his word memorable.  Storytellers are worth their weight in gold.

COMMUNITY EVENTS:

Represent Sand Spring in the community events such as the Christmas Parade and the Burgoo Festival. Entertaining the crowd and representing our congregation.

MISSION TRIPS:

Traveling with church sponsored mission trips to help draw crowds and present the Gospel

.

PROPS / LIGHTING / SOUND:

Every artistic presentation is enhanced by proper lighting, sound, and staging. Our church has wonderful audio visual crews, but they very busy and from time to time there is a need for those who are willing to work on special projects.  Sometimes it needs a hammer.

CREATIVE MOVEMENT:

No longer limited to ballet like movements, creative movement now includes the use of sign language, movement, props, music and  special lighting to convey the imagery of the Gospel message directed to both the hearing and hearing impaired

FACE ART:

Face art can run the gamut from a simple flower painted on a child’s cheek to transforming a persons face into a canvas  where the person becomes a cat or a giraffe.  The human face, God’s canvas, reflecting the beauty of his other creations.

DRAMA / SKITS:

This staple of Christmas  and Easter is useful all year long.
