Dear Members of the Congregation,
Our church family is in need of a set of reliable, dependable people (20-30 or more) that would enjoy serving on a Puppet Ministry Team.  The time commitment would involve 1-2 puppet events per year with 2-3 practices per event.  If a higher number of people sign up, then there would be plenty of team members available in case some are sick or have other conflicts at times.  All ages are invited to join the Puppet Ministry Team!  Below find the “jobs” of a puppet play and perhaps one of those jobs fits a particular person.  A variety of gifts are needed for a puppet show!!!!!

Puppet Play needs:

  • Puppeteers (speaking parts in script)
  • Lip Sync Puppets (mouth words to music)
  • Stage setup/teardown/unload and pack in puppet closet
  • Sound System setup/tear down/operation
  • Make/find/fix props, backdrops if needed
  • Operate props in puppet play
  • Script development/editing/placement on curtain
  • Knee Pads, stool needs and placement
  • Preparation of Puppets:  hair, eyes, clothing, rod arms
  • Special Effects:  music, throw outs, video, sound effects, mime, dance, etc.
  • Audience Participation
  • Media, ads, posters, FOCUS, Bulletins, FB, etc. (getting the word out)
  • Lighting (includes black light setup)
  • Special gift for those involved in a particular play
  • Bulletin/Roster of Participants
  • Recognition needs during/at end of show
  • Develop schedule of practices/notification of puppet ministry meetings
  • Movie Camera Operator
  • At times….piano player and/or another type of instrument, or at times “singer”
  • TV Screen Prep
  • Rear Sound Box operation in Sanctuary
  • Custodial Support (Thanks to Troy Bachtle we have a new puppet storage closet!)
  • Ordering of supplies needed for a particular show, seeking grants for needs


So far five people have signed up without anyone asking!  THANK-YOU!!!

Please consider joining the PUPPET MINISTRY TEAM!
