Worship with kids should be wholehearted, adventurous and fun! The worship stories on this blog were designed to make preparation for Sunday morning simple, so you can put all of your energy into the actual adventure of leading kid's worship. Each lesson speaks to multiple ages, takes 15-20 minutes to prepare and uses props that can be found around your house.
