Christian school assemblies are intended to inspire, encourage and create unity among the school population. Using various approaches in your next Christian school assembly can help capture and motivate the student body in their relationship with God. Providing drama skits, multimedia and contemporary worship will encourage students to engage and participate in the assembly.
Drama is a great way to capture the student's attention. If the assembly is about something in particular, have the school's drama department create different sketches to emphasise the main points of the assembly. For example, if the assembly is to address new discipline policy, the drama team can have a different skit for each new policy. The drama skits can be funny, entertaining and memorable. They are used to highlight the important aspects of the assembly so the students watch, listen and learn. Skits that incorporate Christian principles and Bible stories can be used if the purpose of the assembly is to educate the students on Christianity.
Multimedia presentations can be used for a Christian school assembly. Popular videos such as "Veggie Tales," "BOZ" and Bible cartoons can be used to help teach a particular story out of the Bible. For an older crowd, clips from popular Christian movies such as "The Gift," "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Passion" may be used to teach spiritual principles and lessons. Prepare a message that can focus on one biblical teaching, using clips from the movies. For example, if you're teaching on Christ's death and resurrection you can use clips from both "The Passion" and "The Lion, the Witch and Wardrobe," where Aslan is killed and rises from the dead.
Contemporary worship are songs that are created by people in a modern and trendy style. Some of the most popular contemporary song producers are Hillsongs United, the Desperation Band and the Passion series. Some of these worship albums are available for purchase on DVD, which can be used instead of a live band. Many of them have the words shown, to make it easy for the students to follow. If you have the resources, you can incorporate theatrical lighting and a live band. In the middle of the worship service, ask a few students to share about what God has been doing in their lives. Testimonies from students will encourage others to participate in the worship and will provide encouragement.
