Body of Christ clown skit, courtesy of Epworth Rehoboth Beach United Methodist Church
Begins with a group of clowns walking across and just talking to each other. Solo clown coming the other way
CLOWN 1: (When they meet in the middle) Good morning everyone (or by name if not too many.)
CLOWN 2: Whatcha doing today?
CLOWN 1: Going to play bball. How about you all?
CLOWN 2: Well, we are headed to bell practice. Miss Judy wants to work on some new pieces.
CLOWN 3: Ya, they have a few tricky parts where everyone has to be ready at just the right time to ring their bell.
CLOWN 4: hey, don’t you need more than one person for a basketball team?
CLOWN 1: Yep, you need 5 players to form a team. And each team member must do their job in order play well. I certainly can’t pass to myself.
CLOWN 2: Sounds like we have something in common. Bells and sports!!
(clowns look at CLOWN 2 with a puzzled look)
CLOWN 3: (with bell) Without MY bell Miss Judy could not lead us to make the beautiful music.
CLOWN 4: Let me try to direct you. (does the hand movements and then points to CLOWN 3 who then rings the bell)
CLOWN 1: I see what you mean! Now that is pretty BUT I remember from Easter how beautiful it sounded when the whole choir was ringing (shakes hands like ringing a bell)
CLOWN 2: Reminds me of a Bible story where the Apostle Paul tells the church that we all have gifts and treasures. AND we need to share our gifts in order to carry out Christ’s work.
CLOWN 3: (Points to kids and congregation) God made us all special and gave us each talents and gifts to share.
CLOWN 1: Sounds like we all need to work like a team to help Jesus
CLOWN 4: I prefer that we work like a choir to help Jesus!
CLOWN 3: Same thing. We are all part of the Body of Christ. He needs each and every one of us.
CLOWN 2: And when we are connected to Him, working together, it’s like we are his arms and legs.
CLOWN 1: or maybe His branches. And Together we will produce fruit as big as this ball!
CLOWN 4: Or as sweet as the sound of our bells!! (points to Clown 3 to ring bell again)
CLOWN 3: Hey, CLOWN 1! let’s pray before we leave
CLOWN 1: Gracious Jesus you are the coach, and choir director of our life. Help us to follow your instructions in the Bible. Thank you for the gifts and treasures you have given us. Encourage us to share them, so we can bring others to You.
