The Moon Beam Puppeteers is a ministry of the Church of Christ of Grand Ledge; the team's purpose is to minister to people of all ages through drama, music, humor, and personal testimony. The team serves as a witness for Christ with each person using his or her God given ability.
We chose the name MOONBEAM Puppeteers because we strive to Reflect the SON in all we do. We don't attempt to entertain anyone; we SHARE with those who come to our presentations. Everyone is encouraged to do what they can to participate, this generally means singing along, clapping, laughing, etc.
Since starting in October of 2005, under the direction of Dave and Kim Fox, with members ranging from 10 years old to...well, let's just say older than 10, we have done a total of about 30 presentations, sharing with groups from other local (and not so local) congregations (as far away as Oklahoma), veterans' homes, retirement homes and others. We try to work it out to minister anywhere we are invited to go.
We currently have three different presentations; one is a Christmas presentation entitled "WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?" It's where a young girl finds out the true meaning of Christmas through the use of several different songs and skits.
"CELEBRATE AMERICA" is a program in which we pay tribute to our great country and those who serve it; with special recognition to any veterans we may have in the audience.
W.A.P.G. RADIO --DO IT!" is a very evangelistic program full of some of today's favorite Christian songs and others to help us present the true Gospel message to those who come to share with us.
So if you might be interested in checking it out, contact us! We invite the opportunity to come and share with you!
If you have any questions about the team and what we do, or if you may be considering starting a team of your own, give us a call, we'll do all we can to help. Puppets are a terrific way to get His word out to the world. We like to say we're "Delivering God's word BY HAND!"
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Colossians 3:23
