The first myth is that worship takes a specific number of minutes to happen. Maybe 20 minutes, or 15 minutes. The reality is that worship is an attitude not an event. How long does it take for an attitude. That can't be specified.
The second myth is that real worship can only happen after the elementary age. That you must wait for at least middle school or high school. The reality is that there is no lower age for worship. Our favorite verse in scripture is Psalm 150: "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." Is anyone in your kids ministry breathing?
The third myth is that worship is singing lists from the Bible. This may be a good thing to memorize and to sing, but this is not worship. Learning lists is better classified as learning. Worship is the act of telling God that you believe Him, through praise and thanksgiving. and telling God that you trust Him.
Music for Children
The fourth myth is that the songs you sing for worship must match exactly the lesson for the day. However, lessons and worship have different purposes. Lessons pour information into the children, while worship pours love back to God. Don't try to force the lessons and worship to do the same thing.
Myth number five states that we can just play some CD by a current artist and project the words onto the wall. The reality is that this won't be pretty if you want to actually sing along. Many recording artists have a difficult time hitting the notes in their own songs. Don't inflict this on your kids. Find music that is crafted for kids, songs they can actually sing and take with them in their hearts.
The sixth myth is that you absolutely need a talented and gifted music director to lead the worship. However, while this would be a good thing, it is not a necessity. The whole "make a joyful noise" idea seems to contradict this idea. Specific musical skills are not enumerated in the Scriptures that are necessary to worship God. Worship is an activity for everyone.
