Over 1 Million Served!

Unbelievable! I was looking at the stats counter on my main site, today and realised that the one millionth visitor had come and gone over 21,000 visitors ago!

Reaching the one millionth visitor mark is a high point for me, as the site's visitor count has been steadily increasing since it was first launched in September of 2002, or a period of 2,614 days.

The hit counter on the front page only counts those entering the site, not the pages viewed once there. So the total is only for visitors, not page views. The total visitor count since opening is 1,021,649 as of today.

Being the number one search result for the term "Christian Skit Scripts" or "Christian Skits" on Google, Yahoo, Bing and others is both a reflection of the site's user popularity, and of how the search engines have helped the hits grow.

I thank you, the regular visitor to Christian Skit Scripts, for helping us hit this milestone! Here's hoping we are both still around in a few years to celebrate the two million visitor mark!

Photos of "A Midnight Dreary."

Rev. Van Buchanan submitted these photos of their performance of a "Let's Skit Crazy!" script, titled "A Midnight Dreary" (read it here) at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Morganton, North Carolina, during their recent Fall Festival.

In the script, a man is spending a stormy night at home by himself. When he thinks that an escaped convict is lurking outside, he forgets the Bible lesson on fear he was studying, and panics. A comedy of terrors results, as circumstances conspire to bring him to the brink of a nervous breakdown. After turning back to the scriptures for comfort, he discovers that our imagined fears and reality are often two very different things.

Using the recorded soundtrack CD for accompaniment, the actors had fun with their performance, unfettered by having to memorise lines.

Derek Crane digs into the snack foods he has stockpiled for his night alone.

Derek assures his wife that he is fine, as she calls to check up on him. The night is still young, however.

After a series of frightening events, Derek rediscovers his source of peace.

Derek dons a sheet and makes fun of his own fears.

Derek is about to finish off the invading stranger who has collapsed on his floor.

Not letting fear dictate his actions, Derek learns that the invader just needs a helping hand.

Thanks, Van, for sending the pictures of your performance! I love seeing people having fun doing the scripts I've posted. Here are some more, on the official site.
