Acting in Faith provides quality, simple-to-produce scripts with the needs of progressive congregations in mind. The writers are Pamela Abbey, director of Acting in Faith and Jennifer Weil, a professional actress who was the Founder/Director of the Acts of God® drama ministry in Santa Rosa, CA for a number of years.

We offer:

Short Worship Dramas, designed to be part of a Sunday morning worship service. Many are linked to texts from the New Revised Common Lectionary. The scripts run between 4 and 10 minutes in length. All are small casts and can be performed in a traditional chancel area. Since choosing the right script can be challenging, please feel free to email with questions about theme, plot or characters. We’ll respond quickly.
Cost for each script is $10 with right to copy in the congregation of the original purchaser.

Dramatic Readings grab the attention of your congregation with a dramatic reading of scripture. We’ve formatted a variety of NRSV texts to save you time. Cost is $2.50 for each individual passage. Some are also offered in collections to save you money.

Dramatic Monologues, sermons which are message-length monologues, usually from the perspective of a biblical character. The monologues are designed to be the Sunday morning message. They run from 15-20 minutes in length. It’s always more effective to memorize them, but they can be performed with script nearby if needed.
Cost for each script is $10 unless otherwise noted.

Longer Worship Dramas for production at times other than Sunday morning.
These scripts run from 12 – 20 minutes and are designed to be the centerpiece of the worship service. Casts are small and set requirements are minimal. Cost is $15 with right to copy for use in the congregation of the original purchaser.

We try to fill all orders within 24 hours, Monday – Friday. Scripts will be sent to you by email as an attachment.

Don’t see what you need? We add additional scripts frequently, so check back often. We also welcome suggestions for topics and biblical texts.
