Lion of Judah (Ugh)

I got an email the other day about a new children's video called "Lion of Judah".  I checked out the trailer (below) and ordered it.  I thought we might be able to use it in our Children's Church program on Palm Sunday or Easter.  All I have to say is, I'm glad I previewed it first.  Ugh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XHRNFY3Bfo I've been on the hunt for quality Christian films for my two year old to watch when she starts begging for the television.  Lately, we've been filling the screen … [Read more...]

Daniel and the Lion’s Den {Little People Version}

Daniel and the Lion’s Den {Little People Version}

As a kid, I loved the album "Carmen Yo Kids!"  So when I found out it had been converted to CD format, I snatched it up off Amazon like a bird snatches a worm after the rain.  I was jamming in the car to it and heard the Daniel and the Lion's Den song and immediately the wheels started turning.  We were learning all about Daniel in our Kids for Christ program.  How fun would it be to put together a "Little People" video to the song (similar to these ones).   I broke out the camera and my Corel … [Read more...]

Have You Registered Yet? {Free Websummit!}

Have you signed up for the FREE Children's Ministry Websummit yet?  This is a great event that you are going to want to tune into if you've got the time (or maybe you should make the time).  Jeremy Collins has put together a great line up and I'm excited to be learning new things.  It looks like the format is different this year, so I'll be glad not to have to be glued to the computer for the entire day.  It looks like you can watch on demand over the course of a few days, so that should be … [Read more...]

Little Praise Party is a Big Hit!!

Little Praise Party is a Big Hit!!

I received Yancy's new CD "Little Praise Party" a few weeks ago and have been so busy jamming to it that I forgot to write a review!  Which is a total shame because the CD is AMAZING!   I had listened to Yancy's "Stars, Guitars, and Megaphone Dreams" when it came a year or so ago and wasn't especially impressed.  The music itself was good, but I couldn't see it being used in our Children's Ministry program or even with my own kids.  Just a little too complicated.  It was designed for preteens, … [Read more...]

Blog Madness Sadness

Blog Madness Sadness

Well, once again, Growing Kids Ministry did not make the March Blog Madness 1st Round cut.  Sad.  Maybe I should work on my foul shots. While I'm doing that, there is something you can be doing.  There are some super great blogs that did make the cut, and you should go vote for them right now!  Honestly, it's such a tough choice, especially in East Regional.  The blogs who did make certainly deserve it!   Good job everyone!   … [Read more...]

Conviction

Conviction

This month in our Wednesday night Kids' Club, we're learning about Conviction.  The 252 Basics curriculum defines Conviction as "doing the right thing even if no one else does".  I saw this today and thought of the theme.  I thought I'd pass it along (it's a free printable!)  Grab yours at Technology Rocks. … [Read more...]
