The Big Arena Worship
Worship for children entering 2nd through 7th grades

Music is a powerful medium to use with children. Downloadable music and lyrics videos for all the songs in The Big Arena Worship (2017) are available through God’s Kids Worship. Click on the download tab, then choose All Songs, then click on each song suggested for worship (see list below). Each song suggested for The Big Arena 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.

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.

Also available are separate audio file downloads from Amazon or iTunes. Search for God's Kids Worship/digital music then choose each song below to purchase an audio download. The lyrics for each song are included on the PowerPoint® Presentation (available on this website). The suggested songs are:

  • Let's Get Started (Days 1, 3, 5)
  • Get Up, Get Down (Days 2 & 4)
  • Be Very Strong, Be Very Brave (Joshua 1:6-8) (Days 1 & 2)
  • This Is the Way God Loved (John 3:16) (Days 1, 3, & 5)
  • Oh, How I Love Jesus (Days 2 & 5)
  • Too Strong To Ever Let Me Go (Day 3) 
  • I Believe You (Day 4)
