Celebrate the Child



“One of the most meaningful

Christmas programs I’ve seen.” 

Advent Worship Attendee,  St. Paul, MN


One pastor called it,

“one of our church’s best Christmas programs ever.”


Celebrate the Child blends six different characters, each reflecting on the birth of Christ, with thematically chosen Christmas carols sung by the congregation.


Jonathan leads the entire presentation (with your pianist) or he works with you to include your volunteer musicians and children’s elements, if you wish. You decide how much or how little your congregation or organization will contribute to the program. Very little work, time or energy is required by your staff or volunteers, yet a deeply-moving experience is had by all.


Written by Curt Cloninger and performed with his permission, Celebrate the Child is a delightfully touching drama, perfect for the Advent/Christmas season:

-Sunday Worship

-Youth & Family Events

-Community Organizations and Businesses

-Annual Christmas Parties, Dinners, Teas and Banquets

-Weekend Outreach Events for the Community

-Fellowship Events

-Dinner Theatre


…or just about any setting where you are looking for a fun, unique and meaningful Christmas celebration!


Note: This program tends to get booked quickly for the month of December, so you are encouraged to reserve your date early in the year!

“Celebrate the Child is an amazing, thought-provoking, emotional look at the birth of Jesus. Jonathan performed this drama during our MOPS gathering during the Christmas season last year and it was a huge success. I can’t encourage you more strongly to bring him to your church or event!”
-Tonya Trudo, MOPS Leader
