Highly Recommended Christmas Pageant

September 24, 2012

Curriculum, Programming

It’s that time of year to start planning for the annual Christmas pageant. If you are looking for something that is easy and doesn’t require a huge cast but is focused in the true meaning of Christmas, then I highly recommend “The Christmas County Spelling Bee.”

Here’s the description offered on the package:

Wonderful Counselor. Prince of Peace. Everlasting Father. Even a brief reflection on the names of Jesus brings power and strength to our faith. Dove award-winning writer Celeste Clydesdale has centered her newest Christmas musical, The Christmas County Spelling Bee, entirely around this theme. Set within the narrative of a lively spelling bee, this warm musical consists of nine delightful new songs, as well as the Michael W. Smith classic, “Emmanuel.” As the musical unfolds, the contestants learn more about the character and nature of our Savior.
Worshipful, bright and enjoyable, The Christmas County Spelling Bee will engage the hearts of your kids and congregation this Christmas as it reminds us that “Jesus is the only name that saves.”

Our church performed this musical last year and I was so impressed with the focus on Jesus given in all the songs and the spoken parts. This musical is set during a spelling bee and every word the children are asked to spell is one of the names of Jesus. The kids had a lot of fun performing this musical.

One gentleman approached me after the musical and told me that he had attended many Christmas pageants and musicals in his life and he has never seen a better one than this. It was gospel-focused and centered on Jesus and led those attending to worship.

Check out “The Christmas County Spelling Bee” and encourage your kids to find out more about Jesus – the only name that saves!

This musical can be purchased through your local Christian Bookstore or at amazon.ca

    I just picked up the cd today at a thrift store. Listening to it again I was very impressed by the simplicity and fun of this pageant. The lyrics to one of the songs, “The ABC’s of Praise,” caught my attention.

    “You’re the Alpha, the Bread of Life, the Cornerstone, the Door, Emmanuel, You’re always with me, Friend and God forevermore. My Healer and my Inspiration. Jesus, King of kings, Lamb of God, my Messiah. Name above all names!So many ways to praise You Lord, I don’t know where to start. But with these ABC’s of praise, I can express my heart”
