Drama Ministry  |  Grades 8-12

Description:  Shine your light through Drama!  Jesus says in Matthew 5 that WE are the light of the world and He calls us to shine our light to others.  Drama is a great way to do this!  Discover how drama has been used throughout history to spread the Gospel and teach Biblical truths; and explore how it can be effectively used today in youth groups, churches, special events, mission trips, even in the streets or malls!  Watch examples of this powerful art form in action, and read and select your own pieces to rehearse and perform on Sunday December 8th at 3:00, and on the last day of class, Wednesday December 11.
