“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord you are serving."Colossians 3:23
We encourage you to join our family!
We have a unique ministry with fantastic opportunities to experience personal joy – the joy that comes from doing something of excellence for the Lord as well as serving the body of believers in a special way. We can experience this joy and God’s blessing, whether we are on the stage or behind the scenes!
To develop a ministry team that communicates poignant situations which convey spiritual truths. This will be accomplished through the use of drama, comedy, media, and other art forms.
To enhance the worship experience
To nurture and develop the spiritual and creative gifts and talents of team members through ministry, productions, in-group rehearsals, exercises, classes, and overall experiences.
To strive for excellence as we share our God-given gifts and talents through the avenue of a drama team: actors, stage crew, and administration.
Members of the drama team must be a member of First Christian Church. Age range includes High School age and above. There will be times where younger children will be asked to join our team for a specific performance and the corresponding rehearsals.
We will meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month, from 7:00-8:30 P.M.
Actors with a scheduled performance will meet additional Thursdays.
So that we give the Lord and His church our best, rehearsals must be a priority. In order to complete our planned activities and rehearsals, we would appreciate promptness. This will allow us to be prompt in ending our meetings as well.
Meetings include: instruction, practical experience, improvisations, and other related activities for growing in our craft and for team-building. We'll end with a related devotional and prayer time.
It is our desire to foster a family and team atmosphere, developing a community that will not only nurture the talent of each individual, but will encourage growth and acceptance of each member.
Each team member’s spiritual life affects the entire team. We strongly encourage each member to attend Sunday morning service on a regular basis. We also believe that a life grounded in daily personal Bible study/reading and prayer gives us an abundance from which to draw our strength, both individually and collectively.
Auditions will take place during a Stage Right meeting as we do dramatic exercises and script readings all together. You will also have an individual interview with the director, which will usually be scheduled before or after a meeting.
We look forward to meeting you! Check us out to see if the drama ministry is a good fit for you. Get ready to start "acting up in church."
God bless you as you consider serving in the Stage Right Drama Ministry.
Jon Owings, Director
