Where to Find Youth Group Skits Online

By

Youth groups like to make services far more engaging and vibrant, and one way to do that is to use skits or plays to kick start a message or get a point across. Yet not all youth groups know where to find Christian skits, nor do all of them have the resources to write their own. Here are some online resources (most of them FREE), to help you find some good Youth Group skits:

TheESource

The ESource provides skits that are appropriate for youth groups, family groups, and more. They tend to be more Lutheran focused, but can go well beyond one denomination. The ESource also accepts submissions to the site.

Range of topics covered: acceptance, gender, sex, salvation, suffering, suicide, forgiveness, temptation, and more.

Cross the Sky Ministries

Cross the sky ministries has several sample skits on their website while also offering books full of more productions. The ministry was founded by camp staff from Iowa and Wisconsin to originally create camp curriculum. The ministry has grown to inspire worship and praise in youth groups around the country. Most skits not only have a script, but also a guide for discussion.

Range of topics covered: forgiveness, peer pressure, worship, godliness, friendship, faithfulness, dating, and more.

Let's Skit Crazy!

Let's Skit Crazy! has a multitude of scripts for almost any youth group. The website is not the easiest to follow at times, but it has a wide variety of scripts for almost any occasion. Many of the skits are meant to go along with music, which you can also find on the site.

Catholic Youth Ministry Resources

The resources on Catholic Youth Ministry Resources tend to have a more Catholic flair, but most of them transcend all denominations of Christianity. Some of the skits have lessons attached, while others can be purely used as icebreakers to get the services started.

The Source for Youth Ministry

The Source for Youth Ministry focuses on equipping youth groups with the tools they need to inspire students in their Christian walk.
