Characters: Three narrators or puppets
N1: Did you hear about the haunted house that opened up a couple weeks ago?
N2: Yep! My parents said I couldn’t go.
N1: Why not?
N2: They do not think we should participate in things that represent evil.
N1: How is a haunted house evil?
N2: I said it represented evil.
N1: Well, how so?
N2: They have ghost, witches, and monsters, and my mom and dad don’t think that is good.
N1: It’s just pretend!
N2: I know, but I respect them and their wishes. They try to raise me to please God. Those things do not please Him
N1: Hump! Why don’t you try it once and find our for yourself? I wont’ tell you went with me. We can go this weekend.
N 2: Can’t - we are in revival this weekend and have a special speaker with some singers coming in. I heard they were really good!
N1: How boring! I’d rather go and see the moving skeleton bones and the fire that comes out of the monster’s nostrils.
N3: Did I hear something about some moving skeleton bones?
N1: Yeah! The new haunted house that recently opened has all kinds of cool stuff like that. It’s scary!
N3: I’m going to the harvest party that our church is having this weekend. We are dressing as a biblical character. The best costume gets a trip with the Children’s pastor to ChunkECheese.
N2: That’s a cool place! We went there last year for our VBS contest; it was for whoever brought the most guest to VBS.
N3: Did you hear the story about the bones that traveled from Egypt?
N1: For real? You mean like dry bones?
N3: When Moses left Egypt with the children of Israel, they took Joseph’s bones with them.
N1: Why’d they do that?
N3: Joseph, who was a ruler in Egypt and who had saved the people during a time of famine, He made them swear to carry his bones away from Egypt when they left. They traveled through the desert road so they wouldn’t have to face war and avoid the Philistines.
N1: Did the people take the bones with them?
N3: Yes. They traveled in the wilderness and God use d a cloud to lead them in the day and a pillar of fire to give them light at night.
N2: Did Pharaoh pursue them?
N3: Yes, but God wanted the glory so when the people fled from Egypt, Pharaohs took 600 chariots and overtook them.
N1: Wow! I bet they were scared!
N3: They were terrified, and cried to the Lord. But Moses told them to stand firm and watch the deliverance of the Lord. God would fight
N2: What did Moses do then?
N3: He raised his staff over the Red Sea and the waters parted open.
N1: Just like that?
N3: The people walked over across to safety on dry ground.
N2: Not even mud? Did the Egyptians try to follow them?
N3: They did. God caused darkness to face them where they were standing. When they tried to cross the Red Sea, God caused the waters to come down upon them. They became confused and their wheels fell off their chariots.
N1: Aweseome! The Lord fought for them!
N2: Cool! God saved the Egyptians, Yeah!
N3: God will save anyone who trusts in Him.
N1: & N2: Great! God is just great!
N3: See you next time boys and girls!
