Italicized Words in Documents


Some words in our small group lessons and large group scripts are italicized, and
some are not. Here is why:
Small Group
Italicized words are meant to be said
Non-italicized words are actions, notes or instructions for the small
group leader and are not necessarily meant to be read aloud
Large Group
Italicized words are cues, and are NOT mean to be said
Non-italicized words are meant to be said
Environment Music
We have found that playing music in our environments is a great way to create
an inviting and engaging atmosphere that fits the theme & teaching of the
series. We recommend creating separate CDs containing Environment Music
for Nursery, Preschool and Elementary environments. For all ages, Song #1 is
always a Clean Up Song. On the Nursery CD, Song #2 is the song listed in the
lesson.
Toddlers DVD
Since we do not take Toddlers (ages 14-23 months) to a large group
environment, we often create DVDs with song videos on them and play them
within the Toddler rooms. This allows them to experience an age appropriate
time of worship within their environment.
Large Group Scripts
Large group scripts are written for live actors to perform in addition to provided
media elements such as song videos, Bible stories, video clips, etc.
Elementary School
Scriptgenerally written for TWO live actors & ONE worship leader.
Occasionally series are written to include a Game Director, who
may double as the Worship Leader, and/or Additional Characters
who are needed various weeks, but not the entire series.
The Large Group Shopping List will tell you more about the
characters for the specific series.
