Drama Ministry

"A.C.T

The Arabic Christian Theater;

The Drama ministry of the Arabic Baptist Church, involves a group of people who started at the church few years ago. The team members write, direct and perform the plays. The Drama team presents two plays annually, one during the annual church conference in early July and the second during the New Year's Evening celebration on December 31st.

The Team uses current time issues and real life stories that are related to our Middle Eastern culture merging into the American culture to promote various Christian ethics and to shed the light on some of the problems facing the twenty first century church. The Team also attempts to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ in an easy to understand dialogue. They also try to bring some of the most wonderful Bible stories to life through theatrical performances.

The church encourages any interested member or attendee to join the Drama Team. You may contact Dr. Ashraf Selim who is leading this ministry. We are always looking for actors and actresses. Writers are always encouraged to join the A.C.T. team especially those who write for the Christian theater whether in English or Arabic. We are always looking for fresh ideas and scripts.

We thank our Lord for using this effort as a tool to glorify His Wonderful Name.

Hannah’s Prayer

Then Hannah prayed and said:

“My heart rejoices in the Lord;
    in the Lord my horn is lifted high.
My mouth boasts over my enemies,
    for I delight in your deliverance.

“There is no one holy like the Lord;
    there is no one besides you;
    there is no Rock like our God.

“Do not keep talking so proudly
    or let your mouth speak such arrogance,
for the Lord is a God who knows,
    and by him deeds are weighed.

“The bows of the warriors are broken,
    but those who stumbled are armed with strength.
Those who were full hire themselves out for food,
    but those who were hungry are hungry no more.
She who was barren has borne seven children,
    but she who has had many sons pines away.

“The Lord brings death and makes alive;
    he brings down to the grave and raises up.
The Lord sends poverty and wealth;
    he humbles and he exalts.
He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes
    and has them inherit a throne of honor.

“For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s;
    on them he has set the world.
