If you’re looking for a quick and easy, last-minute Christmas program for your corps kids and teens, look no further. We’ve done all the work for you! Read following program outline that includes: a choral reading (for teens or adults to perform while holding binders – no memorization required!), a classic children’s Nativity scene (to include all your young kids), a song selection for your dance troupe and a drama for teens/adults.

Surrounded by the beauty of the season this time of year, we often forget the reason Jesus came. We get swept up in the lights and carols and brush aside the truth: this innocent baby came, ultimately to die for us. This program takes the classic Christmas service and attempts to bring that message to light through exploring the prophecies Jesus fulfilled through his birth, and the sacrifice he made through his death.
