The Wonder: A Christmas Program for Children

The Wonder: A Christmas Program for Children

Experience the story of Ben, the dreamy son of a Bethlehem innkeeper, who helps his father and us, as well, see the wonder of the baby born in a manger. Designed for optional intergenerational talent, The Wonder seeks to involve children, youth, and adults in the Christmas story. Through drama and song, the program presents the nativity as seen through the eyes of two children of the time.

The Wonder is:
  • Versatile – Use The Wonder as part of your Christmas service or as a separate program.
  • Musical – Congregation and characters sing favorite Christmas songs and some new music.
  • Great for everyone – Up to 20 intergenerational parts for children, youth, or adults – shepherds, angels, innkeeper, magi, and townspeople.
Program length: 30 minutes
