Here is my offering of a fun resource for churches as we all strive to do ministry in new ways. I’ve been attending all kinds of (free!) webinars from Practical Resources for Churches and got the idea to do a Zoom Christmas Pageant. They shared this great resource from Building Faith with all the how-to and practical suggestions for pulling it off. What I was struggling to find was a script that seemed like it would work for Zoom. So I decided to write one specially made for the platform! One of the great Zoom features we can utilize is their halo filter that places a halo over your head that moves with you! With that in mind, I wrote O Zoom, All Ye Faithful, a Christmas pageant that imagines a meeting of angels planning the birth of Jesus. Download the PDF script here:
You can find the halo filter by hovering over the bottom of your Zoom screen, hovering over the Stop Video button, clicking the small Up arrow, and selecting Choose Video Filter.
This is also the place to set your Virtual Background. You can upload any image to use as a background so I recommend finding some heavenly looking backgrounds and send them to your cast for them to use as their backgrounds.
If you plan on using this script I’d love to know! Comment or send me a message so I can check it out once you record it!
I hope we all can enjoy a different kind of Advent and Christmas this year. I’ll continue to share more useful resources so be sure to subscribe and follow Get Lit Worship Resources on Facebook!
