Seek out kid friendly music for your kid’s ministry. If you have an average voice, you know that you cannot sing the great songs written for great opera singers. Kids have a specified range for ease of singing. Let them focus on the song, not trying to hit the notes that are not attainable.
Always, the song should be fun to start with. Although kids are quite capable of singing about very serious and heavy topics. It’s good to first get their attention with the fun songs, and maybe even a song with motions. Not motions like you are in a dance camp, but easy repetitive motions to enhance the song and the song’s meaning.
Most importantly, pick songs that express the truths from God’s Word. Nothing is more important for them to learn, then God’s truths. Tell them just how much God loves them and want the best for them. In all things, God is trustworthy.
Yes, sing the new songs that are also being sung in your church’s Big Church. Yes, sing the older trusted songs that your church is familiar with. Yes, sing hymns, the all time greatest hits for Christians. Yes, try out the new songs written just for kids, with fun lyrics and great repetition.
All Creatures Of Our God and King from Yancy is a great hymn also in a kid friendly format.
Good Good Father from Yancy will teach a great truth to your kids that will stay with them for life.
One, Two, Three - On day three Jesus rose from the grave. A super easy way for kids to understand that Jesus is alive. “One, Two, Three Jesus is alive.” A great song for the Easter season and to teach about Salvation.
