People are busy! It is hard enough to get people to volunteer, so how can we ask them to serve every week? Weekends are busy with family commitments, or time to relax and sleep in. Volunteering weekly will be the most rewarding for volunteers but how can we get them to understand that?
Finding new songs for kids worship can be challenging. We don’t have a team dedicated to leading worship in our kids ministry so we like using Kids Worship Videos. I was looking for some new Kids Worship Videos and came across some new videos by Summit Creative Company. They are available on WorshipHouseKids.com. There are several things I like about these videos:
There are some things that only the leader of a team can do. Bill Hybels talks about the gift of ENERGY that a leader can give to their team & the difference it will make. In this video he talks about going from feeling anxious & overwhelmed to feeling focused and energized on the leadership goals that were in front of him.
People lead the best when they are renewed, refreshed & re-envisioned. Bill Hybels, the Lead pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago, talks about the challenges of staying replenished and the priorities that he puts in place to keep recharging.
Bill Hybels is a well known pastor & speaker. His talks are challenging and motivating.
I came across this video of him speaking about Coffee with God. Great reminder of where our priorities should be & the difference it will make.
Are you looking for new kids songs? Here is a list of names / groups that you can search in YouTube. These videos would be applicable for different situations. Some are great to use for teaching Bible verses, some are good for pre-service tunes & some are great to use during Kids Worship Time. Each of the names listed below has several videos on YouTube so there’s lots to preview.
Go to YouTube, and search the following:

We have just finished an EPIC week at our church. Here is a little video I put together with highlights from this past week.
Crossroads Kids Club has produced some amazing videos for Kids Ministry. They have made them available for anyone to download. And best of all, they are FREE. You definitely have to check them out. You can view the story of Joseph on vimeo. This is the link to their website with access to all the videos they have made.
