Here are three different Christmas pageants complete with music, staging directions, scenery and costume suggestions, as well as pointers about how to organize such an event. The pageants are for grades K-8, but one calls for adults and teens. A CD-ROM is included so that scripts can be edited for local use and printed out for the cast. The first pageant is a traditional Nativity play with carols; the second is an adaptation in verse in the style of medieval mystery plays; and the third is a dramatized service of lessons and carols with Eucharist.

Charity OUK4UThanks!O became SantaOs little helper as they provided 22,500 Christmas boxes to troops all over the world - containing a host of goodies bought with money donated from members of the public. The presents were unwrapped by troops serving in Afghanistan on Christmas Day.
While work continued for many of the troops, most had the chance to let their hair down a little with fun and games, sports competitions, and quizzes. Church services were also held by the team of Padres to ensure the true spirit of Christmas was not forgotten. And everyone received an extra 30 minutes free time on their welfare phone card to ensure they could wish their family and friends a merry Christmas.

I created a title slate for the christmas video which I shot for the church I attend using their program as a guide. I created the shafts of light and then animated the light and the words onto the screen.

The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant.
None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating -- has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.
