Books of the Bible
Bring Your Swords to Recess - A Musical Production for children, by Dan Stanfield.
For 3rd - 6th Graders: This is a learning play. The purpose of the play is for the children to learn all the books of the Bible, two memory verses (theirs and their "understudy"), and several songs. The play also demonstrates the principle of applying Scripture in daily life.
The Mystery at the Nativity - A Christmas Production with puppets for children and youth.
Written by Dan and Christine Stanfield.
We wanted a Christmas play involving all age groups - toddler thru high school, that used puppets, that used classical Christmas music, had audience participation, and gave the audience something to think about - you know, we made it happen! This is a really fun play, for both the kids and the audience! The "Mystery" solved is the conflict between Jesus as King and Jesus as the Lamb of God.
Tough Love - Halloween and the Modern Church - A call for Christian Separation
And He said unto them, "Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition." (Mark 7:9, KJV)

Water baptism is a testimony of our faith in Jesus Christ, identifying ourselves with His death, burial, and resurrection, and is a scriptural requirement for membership with the local church.
