Journey into Worship
Worship for children entering 2nd through 7th grades

Music for Journey Into Worship (worship for children)

Music is a powerful medium to use with children. Downloadable music and lyrics videos for all the songs in Journey with Jesus: Following in His Footsteps (2016) are available through God’s Kids Worship. Click on the download's tab, then choose All Songs, then click on each song suggested for worship (see list below). Each song suggested for Journey Into Worship 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). 

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 from God's Kids Worship 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. The suggested songs are:

I'll Follow You (Theme Song)
A Brand New Me
It All Comes Down to Love
Let's Get Started
There is Someone
Without You, Jesus
