"A New Beginning."

Note: I produced this for my Daughter and Son-in-law's Youth Group; by all means, use it to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ!


Introduction to the Congregation:

"Good morning, everyone. Today, we have something special to share with you. It's a screenplay titled 'A New Beginning,' a story that encapsulates the essence of our journey in faith and the transformative power of God's love.


This screenplay is more than just a narrative; it reflects real-life situations many of us have faced or are currently navigating. It's about questions, doubts, and the quest for deeper understanding. 'A New Beginning' follows the conversation between two individuals, Chris and Alex, at a park, where they engage in an honest and open discussion about faith, God's love, and the path to spiritual renewal.


As we delve into this story, I invite you to open your hearts and minds. Consider your journey of faith. Think about the times you've sought answers, the moments of revelation, and the steps you've taken toward a deeper relationship with God. Whether you're like Chris, who has found comfort and purpose in faith, or Alex, who is curious and seeking understanding, this story is for all of us.

This screenplay is not just about the words spoken between two people. It's about the universal journey towards Grace, Redemption, and the new beginnings always available to us through Christ. As you listen, I encourage you to reflect on your experiences and the paths that have led you here today.


So, let's journey together through 'A New Beginning,' may this story inspire and remind us of God's ever-present love and Grace in our lives."

Title: "A New Beginning"

Scene Setup: A serene early spring park with flowers blooming and birds chirping. Chris, a middle-aged man with a gentle demeanor, sits on a bench, Bible in hand. Alex, a young adult with a thoughtful expression, walks by, notices Chris, and pauses.

Chris: (looks up, smiles warmly) "Hi there! Yes, it's a Bible. I was reading about Jesus' miracles. Ever curious about them?"

Alex: (approaches, intrigued) "Actually, yes. I've heard of the Bible but never really understood it. What's it all about?"

Chris: "Well, it's about God's love for us and a life plan. Mind if I share a bit? It helped me through some tough times."

Alex: (sits down, nods) "Sure, I've got some time."


Chris: "The core of the Bible is the Gospel, which means 'good news.' It begins with God. He created us for a relationship with Him, but our wrong choices, what we call 'sin,' have created a barrier. I discovered this during a tough phase in my life."

Alex: "So, how do we overcome this barrier?"

Chris: "That's where Jesus Christ comes in. He's God's Son, sent to Earth to bridge that gap. He lived a perfect life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the dead. His sacrifice offers us forgiveness and reconnects us with God."


Alex: "Sounds profound, but what does it mean for someone like me?"

Chris: "It means everything. It's about believing in Jesus, turning away from our old ways (that's repentance), and inviting Him into our lives. It's a personal decision, like the one I made years ago."

Alex: (thoughtfully) "I've made plenty of mistakes. Can someone like me start over?"

Chris: "Absolutely. That's the beauty of the Gospel. It's for everyone. No matter our past, we can have a new beginning. Would you like to take that step?"

Alex: (nods, visibly moved) "Yes, I would."


[Chris leads Alex in the sinner's prayer, which Alex repeats sincerely.]

Chris: "Congratulations, Alex! Welcome to the family of God. This is just the beginning. I suggest reading the Bible and finding a community in a church, and I'm here to help you, too."

Alex: "Thank you, Chris. I feel a sense of peace. I want to learn more."

[Chris hands Alex a small New Testament Bible.]

Chris: "Start with the book of John. It's a great introduction to Jesus' life and teachings. And about that church, I can show you some around here. Maybe we can visit one together?"


Alex: "That would be helpful. I'm not sure how to pick a church."

Chris: "No worries, I'll help you with that. Also, joining a Bible study group or a new believers' class can be enlightening. They're great for asking questions and understanding the basics of your faith."

Alex: "A class for new believers sounds perfect."


Chris: "And don't forget, living out your faith is about how you love and serve others, make choices, and share this good news with others. I've found that it's not just what we believe, but how we act that truly counts."

Alex: "That's a lot to take in, but I'm excited to start."

Chris: "I'll be here to guide you, Alex. And remember, it's a journey. There will be ups and downs, but God is with you every step of the way. Let's meet regularly. I can also connect you with some friends who've recently started their faith journey. They can share their experiences with you."


Alex: "Thanks, Chris. I appreciate all your help. It's a lot less daunting knowing I have someone to guide me."

Chris: "Of course, Alex. And one more thing, don't hesitate to ask questions. No question is too small or too silly. We all start somewhere."

Alex: "I'll remember that. Thank you for everything today, Chris. It's a day I won't forget."

Chris: "I'm glad I could be a part of it. Welcome to your new life in Christ, Alex."

[They stand up, shake hands, and the scene ends with them walking off together, discussing plans for their next meeting.]

Please revise this in any way you like. You may add more depth to the characters and their interaction, making the scene more like a natural, real-life conversation.
