Worship Express

Worship for children entering 2nd through 7th grades

Music for Worship Adventure (worship for children) Music is a powerful medium to use with children. This year, downloadable music and lyrics videos for all the songs in African Safari Adventure: Exploring the Wonders of God’s Creation (2015) are available through God’s Kids Worship. Each song suggested for Worship Adventure may be inserted in the PowerPoint® presentation by creating a slide that contains the video file.

Each downloadable music and lyrics video bundle includes a stereo video, a split-track video, and lyrics PDF file of each song. Additionally, each song is available as a free, full-length rehearsal video, playable on any internet-connected device, with no login or registration required.

A free 5:00 countdown clock with fun animation is included for free, and is only accessible from this website for VBS users.

Select either Windows Media or QuickTime files for the songs to match your playback system. Files are suitable for use in all major presentation software programs. Free compatibility files are available on every page. Check file compatibility before you buy if you are unsure about your system’s requirements.

There are no refunds for software downloads. God’s Kids Worship can’t provide follow-up support without being at your location to assess your hardware and software, so no follow-up tech support is offered. You should check your system and perhaps consult with church media people if you are unclear about how to use computer media files.

Consider using a children's praise team to lead each day. The children would learn the songs prior to VBS by using the free streaming rehearsal video links for each song. Each day, they would stand at the front with the children's minister, minister of music, or other leader to lead in worship. Sign language for key words or appropriate movement could be added to help the children remember the words to the songs.

Special Mission Videos

There are two videos that enhance the mission stories in sessions three and four. The Just for Fun video shows the Zambian children making animals out of mud. The children will enjoy seeing how the children play in Zambia. In session four, a video was made by a short-term missionary to show the needs of the school children in Zambia. The video, Kabonga School – Zambia may be used during the mission activity to show the children where the school supplies they will collect will be going.
