This moment brought to you by SANDSTORM!

This month, we've been talking about how life is like a puzzle -- we only see one piece, but God's got the BIG PICTURE.  Naturally, in order to make the theme come alive, we had to do a few puzzle games.  One game was having two kids race to put together their own 24 piece puzzle.  They had a minute to do it, and they were blindfolded.  This week, I decided to go out on a limb and use some music to liven things up a bit. As I called up two volunteers, I started playing the Sandstorm track … [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...]

What To Do When You Can’t Fit in Quiet Time

What To Do When You Can’t Fit in Quiet Time

I've been working on "maximizing my mornings" based on a recent e-book I discovered (check out how my first week went). Based on Kat's suggestion (and some of the songs she mentioned) I made a Morning Worship CD.    I connect well with God through music, so I can't believe I never thought of using this tool at home.  Music has always been one of my favorite parts of summer camp or church, and now it will be part of my daily quiet times as well. Here are the songs I added to the CD: Invade … [Read more...]

Spring Song Line-up

Spring Song Line-up

We’ve been talking  about praising God when we sing during Kids for Christ (Wednesday nights) and Children’s Church (Sundays).  Even though we often have fun while praising and worshipping God, we want to make sure the kids know it’s all about God, and not about us.  We also want families to have the opportunity to praise and worship God at home, in the car, or wherever they are!  We’ve made a Spring song list (below) for the Children’s Ministry and we’ll be concentrating on these songs for the … [Read more...]
