Over two thousand years ago, the greatest story of all began. It began with a baby born in a shepherd's cave. This was the most creative miracle that has ever happened in history; God became a human and lived among us. he did not disguise Himself with the form of a man; He became one---for the ultimate purpose of paying the penalty for our sin. When that was accomplished on the Cross, and death was defeated, He went back to His home in Heaven to prepare a place for us. His story is not over, because He wants to include us in it! That is the invitation of Christmas still going on. We trust that these seven plays will draw people into His story in a way that changes their lives. They will be entertained by funny characters, imaginative ideas, different perspectives, mystery, drama, action, and more, while the tremendous truths of the Incarnation of Christ are revealed. The Light of Christmas, who is Jesus Himself, shines on into the darkness and gives us Hope---a hope the world would never know without Him. These seven plays will provide an opportunity to shine that light as the story of Christ's birth is told through drama, music, costumed characters, and many other methods of presentation. Brief staging and lighting directions are included with each play.

About the Author
Guy and Teresa Lavergne were in full-time children's ministry for 21 years at their home church, and served as elementary chaplains at the private school founded by their church. Most of these Christmas plays were performed at their church during that time. They also wrote and directed a total of fifteen summer stage productions performed for families of their church, school, and community. On a regular basis, they wrote skits for the children's Sunday services and for elementary chapel. These shorter skits have been compiled and published previously in one book entitled: Act Upon a Story: 60 Bible Skits for Ministry. They have also published a series of skits on the life of Joseph, based on the account in Genesis. Both of these books are currently being sold through Amazon.
