Christmas play «You are special»
On December 23d New Life Church held a Christmas program for kids. Alina Chernyak, director of a kids’ choir and leader of a worship team, in simple words told kids about Christmas and the main purpose of Jesus’ birth which was to save people.
Sunday school of New Life Church and a little theater “Zavitushka” presented a play based on Max Lucado’s work “You are special”. Each character had a unique bright outfit.
The action takes place in a fairy tale town of small wooden men who spend every day sticking labels on one another. Those who are skilled and beautiful receive golden stars but those who are clumsy and less talented get grey spots. The main character – Panchenello – with all his might tries to earn one star but people looking only at his faults stick only grey spots. Panchenello meets a mysterious girl Lucy whose clothes hold neither stars nor spots. Lucy tells him about Master who has created wooden people and values every one of them. Finally our main character meets Master and realizes how special and unique he is.
Spectators attentively followed the story of the wooden people empathizing with the main characters. The plotline of the play helped kids to turn their eyes off their own flaws to see their uniqueness. Master’s character reminded them of God Who made each person unique, precious and beautiful.
After the play pastor of New Life Church Vyacheslav Goncharenko greeted the audience and wished them merry Christmas.
At the close all small guests received presents where apart from sweets they found beautifully made Bibles for kids.
