          GET

                DOWN

              WITH

             JESUS!

            PUPPETS

 

It was almost a year ago that the idea of beginning a Puppet Ministry at Bethany Christian Church was born. Now it is a reality!

After many discussions, meetings, and a lot of prayer, we now have a Puppet Team.

Originally, there were pro’s and con’s concerning this new thing at Bethany, but it happened

A stage was built and it was built for portability! Our complete program was built for that purpose. We intend to take this ministry “on the road” visiting Nursing Homes, Hospitals, Assisted Living arenas, and even other Churches.

When you look at our name, Get Down With Jesus Puppets, you probably wonder why they chose that name. And that is sort of an odd name for a Puppet Team. Well, the Team, leaders and puppeteers, all agreed that for our style of music, this is a most appropriate name.

Our Team, at the present, does entirely musicals. But we have music, and plenty of it! Our music is consistently “Parodies”, and that is music that you know, but the songs have different words. Each of our songs are patterned after songs as in a hymnal, the hymns each have a sermon and so do ours. That means that the familiar music and songs that we grew up with now have a Christian message.

Our songs make you want to clap your hands and pat your feet. They range from Disco, Rock and Roll, Bluegrass Gospel, Old-Time Gospel, and we even have holiday music such as Christmas and Easter songs.

We currently have over 100 of these types in our possession.

The Team has already introduced itself to our Church in Worship Service, and has been invited to participate in this year’s Christmas Cantata, in which it will present two songs.

But the most important point of all is that this is Bethany children presenting a ministry! This ministry is vivid and full of life, and everything we do represents our Team name. We actually Get Down With Jesus! 

He is our focal point. He is the One we’re trying to please. He is the One we represent. And we take Him seriously.

Please keep us in your prayers. Pray that this ministry will be effective, and it will put the name of Jesus and His Gospel Message into the hearing of many who need to hear it, and happiness and consolation into the ears of those who already know Him, but just need a light and happy moment!
