Tell Me the Story of Jesus (children's Christmas program)

In this short musical play, you'll join the Ponder family as they invite a young boy, Mike, to share Christmas with them. Through their family traditions, including the reading of the Christmas story, the gospel comes alive. The music, a blend of traditional carols and new compositions, is carefully crafted for success with young singers. Fourteen characters have costumed speaking roles, and up to 28 different narrators can be used to give everyone in your church, school, or homeschool group an opportunity to participate. This program is designed as a Sunday school program with sections for the preschool children, K–3rd graders, and 4–6th graders. The age categories are flexible. Many small speaking parts allow a large number of children to participate. In a smaller church, more than one narrator part can be given to each child.
