The Wineskin Project is a series of short read-aloud plays based on the Gospels that can be freely downloaded for use as Sunday school, church school or Bible study curriculum for high schoolers or adults. (You might also try them with your junior highers if, based on your knowledge of your particular kids, you think they would like them.)
The plays will be written with these goals in mind:
I'll be writing these plays in lectionary order. Upon this website's launch in April of 2013, plays covering every Gospel reading scheduled for the summer of 2013 in the Episcopal, Roman Catholic, or Revised Lectionaries (Year C, Propers 4-16) will be available right away, and I'll try from that point on to post new plays at least four months before their scheduled dates so that all the plays for each quarter of the Sunday School year can always be evaluated before that quarter begins.
Update (3-9-2023): I ended up completing plays for every Sunday in Lectionary years A, B, and C for the years 2013-2015. (Whew!) However, there could be uncovered Sundays in the years after that, due to Ordinary Time being different lengths for different years. If you're using these plays in lectionary order and see a Sunday coming for which there is no play, let me know as soon as you can and I'll try to whip one up for you. (Though it's been a long time since I wrote the last one!)
