Hey, it’s Courtney here, and if you’re wondering who I am and where Bill is, check out his post from Friday. I\’m really excited to be the first person from the new team of bloggers to be posting here. And since Bill has already said I would "give the house away," why not start off on the right foot?
I’ve got the fall quarter of Worship KidStyle sitting on my desk, and I\’d love to give it to one of you! If you already use Worship KidStyle, how about giving it to another local church in your area?

I also just got some really cute Lifeway Kids buttons in my office. I\’ll make sure the winner also gets a set of these! And if you’re going to be at Lifeway’s Kids Ministry Conference next week, we\’ll be giving these away at our booth!
To be entered, just leave us a comment letting us know your favorite part of Kids Ministry. You have until midnight eastern on Friday, October 8 to comment. We\’ll pick one random winner.
Courtney… this is so fun!
Worship Kidstyle is awesome. I was introduced to it at Ridgecrest this summer. I would love to win the free kit and incorporate it in my preschool conferencing here in Florida.
My favorite part of Kids Ministry is when the kids really take to heart what we have been teaching them about God and want to know more about him!
LOVE IT ALL!
Though new to Children’s Ministry I am humbled by the honesty and openness of children. Seeing the world through the eyes of a child is amazing. While teaching them you always learn something yourself. I look forward to every opportunity I get to work with children of all ages.
I love it when I get notes from kids and/or parents expressing that our ministry has helped them realize that God has a special plan for them! Seeing kids ask Jesus into their lives and follow in baptism is amazing!
I also love greeting families each week and hearing about their weeks and how they are blessed by the Lord and the ministry at our church!
We are not currently using this material, but after viewing the video, it looks AMAZING!!! I’m going to look into it more to see about implementing it in our children’s church.
I am just getting started in Children’s Ministry but I love seeing my kids reach out to others in our church. Our Worship Leader has been very sick lately and has just returned to church in the last few weeks. Yesterday one of the 3rd grade girls walked up to her gave her a hug and said “Ms. Sara I know you haven’t been feeling good lately, but I am so glad your back at church, I missed you!” It melted my heart to see a kid care that much for others in the church!
I am looking for something new and lively for kids ministry on a weekly basis. I’d love to see Worship KidsStyle!!! I love the sincere faith of children in working with VBS and their energetic worship with good music. I think that’s as good as it gets this side of heaven! I’d like something like that for more than just a week of VBS each summer.
I love the Worship KidStyle Curriculum. I have been involved in Childrens Ministry and Childrens Choir for over 20 years now and it never gets old, thanks to Lifeway keeping it fresh and fun and up to date! We have a sister church opening up this month and would like to present it to them to help them get started. I also have taught over 500 kids the books of the bible on the ukelele and use it in the nursery and the nursing homes! Learning can be fun with Lifeway! When my daughter moved up to Youth, everyone was telling me it’s time for your to move up to which I replied, who says, God gifted me tow work with this age group! So I followed the spirit and have been blessed ever since! It is especially rewarding to see the fruit in these young childrens life as they mature into wonderful christ following young men and women!
I love seeing their faces light up when they remember something from the bible story last week. They just can’t wait to tell you!
Have been in Children’s Ministry for 12 1/2 years . I Love teaching! Seeing their bright little faces light up with that “aw ha” I get it! Would love to try the Worship Kidstyle curriculum.
I have never used this, but would love to try it.
My favorite part of ministering to kids is watching them make the connection between what is happening in the Bible stories and what is happening in their lives, connecting their heads with their hearts!
This is my fourteenth year in Children’s Ministry. My favorite thing in all the world to do is disciple children who are Christians to grow deeper in their love and obedience to Christ and the Scriptures.
I think those buttons are ADORABLE! Would it be possible to purchase a set?
I just started teaching 1st and 2nd graders in Sunday School, and I am so blessed! I led RAs for 15 years, but I’ve been out of the children’s ministry for about 10. I have realized just how much I have missed! I have had so much fun decorating my room, and I hope the kids enjoy having me as a teacher. I pray each week that we all can learn something new and what the kids learn will carry them through to a salvation experience and a life living for and loving Christ.
never tried WKS, but the info that comes with my VBS curriculum looks intriguing! If it’s anywhere near as awesome as VBS…well: HOT DOG!!
We aren’t currently using Kidstyle, but I have been looking for just this resource! Can’t wait to check it out in more detail. We have started having “Worship Rally” from VBS week EVERY Sunday prior to SS starting out. We are doing the pledges, re-watching some of the missions segments, singing the songs from years past, and this would be a great addition or guide for our weekly Worship Rally.
I love the music. The kids. NO, the message. Wait…I love it ALL!
My favorite part of Kids ministry is well……all of it! 🙂
I love when you see the message you are trying to get accross click with them. When you see them coming face to face with God and realizing just how much He loves us! Then they get excited and start sharing what they are learning with their friends as school!
I love working with the children and telling them about Jesus! One of my happiest moments was when we studied the 23rd Psalm, verse by verse, and one of our kids went to another church and was asked if they were familiar with the 23rd Psalm and he said yes and quoted it for the teacher! She was amazed and it made my heart happy when his grandmother told me what he had done!
I love the kids! they are great!
We use Lifeway VBS programs for our bible school every year! Welvoe the lessons, crafts, music and most of all, teaching kids to draw closer to God!
Hey Melissa, no currently you can’t buy them, but we’ll be giving them out at several events and from time to time on the blog!
It makes it all worthwhile to hear a child talking to another about God and Salvation! I love teaching kids every year during VBS and each week during Awana!
VBS is my favorite part of Kids Ministry.
I love seeing the children get what they are taught, and watching them live it out!
One of my favorite moments was just this past week. We highlight a missionary family that our church supports and after we finished a few of the kids asked for a copy of the missionary letter. I really didn’t know if they were really paying attention before that moment. God is so good!
I love prayer time. There’s just something about hearing a child pray that makes my heart full of joy!
This is Becky entering this contest for Jeff Childs because the comments aren’t working for him. Weird.
