Drama Ministry in the Church

There are many reasons you may want to use biblical costumes in your church programs. Whether for bible school, Sunday school, worship drama club, small skits, or even if you’re putting on a big biblical production they are quick and easy to sew and can be plain or as elaborate as you want them to be. There are even some you can make without any sewing at all!

Most of these biblical costumes were made from bed sheets and remnants of fabric found in the sale racks at fabric stores. See how below.

Notice the simple bright and colorful gems that were quickly hot-glued onto the “kings” garment to help make him look rich and royal.
Also, this costume was originally for a large size man. We simply used a few large safety pins to temporarily hold up the sleeves and hem on the robe.
