Our motto is: “Teaching without Preaching”
The Women’s Spiritual Repertory Company (WSRC) is a Christian
Group of women dedicated to learning and teaching others the historical
significance and truth about God’s unique love for women in the Bible.
The Southern California branch of the WSRC was founded in 2000 by
Modenia Kramer and Suzanne Lawrence.
We study the lives of women from both the Old and New Testament,
using other Biblical reference material such as:
Atlases, commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias. We have compiled our
own curriculum incorporating the above materials.
Members study a chosen character from the Bible and become that character
through costumes reflective of the time and of the character’s life story.
Some members may choose not to present, however they are welcome
to participate in our scriptural studies and help the group in other ways
such as: staging, lighting, audio, costume prep, and remembering the group in prayer.
During the meetings women develop the character they have chosen from in-depth
Bible study. Each person researches the historical background, the individual life of
the character. The presenters work to portray a Biblical personality in a way that the
character comes to life and has relevance to our contemporary world.
We teach without preaching. We present our audiences something they didn’t already know. At the meetings, members analyze each re-enactment prior to presentation in front
of civic and church groups, retirement centers, private events and classrooms.
Two or three presenters are usually scheduled for an event as each story
runs approximately 8-12 minutes. Total time is approximately 1 hour. Sometimes
a request is made for only 1 presenter. This type of program can be 45
minutes to an hour. There is no set fee for our presentations but donations are gratefully
accepted, to cover the cost for costumes, printing, website, and transportation costs.
During our 19 years together, we have presented many programs
for groups, such as nursing homes, churches of various denominations,
including Catholic schools and Bible Study Groups, retirement centers,
historical sights, and private homes. This is an outreach mission that has
changed the lives of many of our presenters and hopefully many of those in our audiences.
