If you’re looking for a way to fill your church, teach children about the Gospel message and evangelize the lost, consider using one of the many Christmas plays for children available.

Children Will Fill The House
Everyone knows that there’s nothing cuter at Christmas than a group of children acting out the Christmas story. That’s why children are your greatest attraction.
Children have parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, neighbors, teachers and schoolmates. Many of these are likely to attend the play if only just to see ‘their child’ perform. The more children you involve, the more likely you are to fill your church from full to overflowing.
And remember – you aren’t just filling seats. You’re reaching out to people who need to hear the gospel message.
Want to fill the house with people who need encouragement, hope and salvation? Feature children!
Children Will Learn the Gospel
As long as your program is based on the Biblical story, Christmas plays for children are a great way for kids to learn about the gospel.
From reading and memorizing their role in the script and listening to the other children recite their lines, all the way to singing Christmas songs, children can’t help but soak in the Christmas story, and remember it the rest of their lives.
For kids who grow up in church, Christmas plays for children are a helpful reinforcement to Sunday school lessons. And for kids who aren’t regular churchgoers, these Christmas plays are the perfect introduction to the greatest story ever told.

Children Will Evangelize
You might be surprised to know that God can use children to evangelize.
How? God can use the sweet, innocent nature of children to break through the hardest of hearts and make them laugh, cry and think. And the Holy Spirit can take it from there.
