Faith News

A Bible Stories Breaking News Musical

Created by Christy Semsen
Arranged by Daniel Semsen

The setting is a Heavenly news broadcast originating inside the Pearly Gates, hosted by two angelic News Anchors, Cameron Flowers and Summer Showers. Bringing some of your favorite Bible Stories to life, our newscast flows back and forth between top-flight Bible news coverage by Cameron and Summer, to stellar on-the-ground reporting by our roving angel duo, Chera Bim and Sara Fim. Clever, snappy dialogue and fun, catchy, Biblically-based songs help tell the stories of Noah and the Ark (with a little help from Mrs. Noah), Joshua (at the Battle of Jericho), Queen Esther, Moses (including an important conversation where Moses asks Pharaoh to “let my people go”), Abraham and Sarah, and, direct from the New Testament, Ananias and Saul/Paul.
