Drama Explosion

This team of children from 1st-5th grade meet on Wednesday nights in the “yellow shag carpet” 2nd grade Sunday school room at 6:15 p.m.  Bible stories will come alive as we explore Bible stories in depth.  In addition to our fun and crazy drama games, we will use our creative side to act out the stories, write scripts, and make props so we can perform these stories on the 4th week of each month.  Learning will be through fun, interactive techniques. Don’t miss a Drama Explosion of fun on Wednesdays!  

Youth Drama & Creative Team

This program will be announced. Youth are welcome to help with “Drama Explosion” on Wednesday nights or with writing the Creative Arts Camp script.

Creative Arts Camp

This fun week is held in July and is full of creativity for completed 1st-5th grades. The children in camp design and make their own costumes, work on the set and perform their creative slant to a play written just for this age group. The presentation is performed on the last day of the week.

“Return to Bethlehem”

This outdoor presentation is in the DNA of Grace.  RTB, as it’s called, is a Biblical account of the night of Jesus birth. Grace UMC presents this as a gift to the community. Visitors travel with a guide back to a lifelike village where the sights, sounds and smells of Bethlehem help visitors understand and be a part of the night Jesus was born. This incredible experience is set in the field behind the Wesley Center. This is a great way for families to work together to bring the “Reason for the Season” to the forefront. With over 400 in the cast, and a steering committee of 20, this gift of love from the congregation of Grace UMC has impacted 48,905 visitors in the ten years it’s been running! This program is offered every two years to the community. The next production will be December 2018.
