A Short Christmas Church Play for
Maximum Audience Participation

Blessed Redeemer by Richard & Esther Provencher

During the evening while KING HEROD slept, three MAGI

crossed into Bethlehem on their CAMELS.

The MAGI had followed a bright STAR for many miles. And

now it remained high above this small village. Their CAMELS

were excited as they walked across the dusty street.

Before them was a stable, bathed in brightness from

the STAR, unmoving as if waiting for something special to

take place.

A Father watched proudly as the baby's Mother caressed her

newborn baby tenderly. {song sung: ie Mary did you know?}

The CAMELS stirred anxiously. PIDGEONS saluted with their

soft sounds. COWS impatiently swung their necks. And a

DONKEY let loose with a scream of happiness.

Now ALL PARTICIPANTS and humans gathered around the baby.

They knew He was very special and that the world would

never be the same again.

And EVERYONE joined together to sing - Silent Night.

Yes, this baby's name is Jesus. As he grows up he will

also be called -- Blessed Redeemer -- Lion of Judah

Immanuel Saviour Healer -- Prince of Peace -- The Great

I Am - And King of Kings.

The End
