Christian Songs for Kids - God is So Good


Do you find it hard to get visuals and recordings for different kids songs?






I have always found this a problem so I am now sharing songs that I have used with children providing you with



Visuals 
(Powerpoint or Picture or details of how you can make one) 


Words   
(chords also available)


Recording  
(mp3 or video to learn the song) 


Then if you would like to download the visual of the song there will be a link provided to my creation, or I will direct you to where else you can find it.   



This month I am taking the theme of



The Attributes of God




The song I have chosen is 



God is so Good


This is a song that is so very simple but so full of the truth and gives the Gospel in a nutshell.

I like to use this song to reinforce about the Goodness of God to us in that He has made the only provision He could to forgive our sins, taking them away and leaving us free from the captivity of sin. Then draw out from the children about God giving us Jesus, His only Son to take our sins on Himself and suffer and die instead of us.





POWERPOINT

RECORDING








Notes:

I believe the Words (of the first verse at least) are by Velna A. Ledin 
    
There appear to be many variations of the other verses of which the authors are unknown.
More information can be found HERE








I Hope you enjoy the song and this is a help to you.

3 Kings & A Camel - A Dose of Encouragement

Tonight we had a puppet show at church.


We laughed so hard I nearly cried.


I wish I had taken a video clip because it will be so hard to explain the episode with the camel to someone who was not there.





The three wise men, dressed as kings, were riding along on one camel following the star.


The music had a certain beat to it that meant the puppeteers were jolting the camel & kings along forward for three beats and then flinging their heads backwards on the fourth beat.


A few times of this went okay and then one of the kings flung his head back so hard he lost his crown.


Next time one of the kings almost disappeared as the one in front head-butted him but then to "crown" it all off the next time the camel head-butted the first king which resulted in him head-butting the second king and of course he head-butted the third king making all of them look like they were falling off the camel.


We laughed so hard I nearly cried.


However the main problem lay in the fact that the camel had such a cute looking face that you had to forgive him & love him even if he may have almost killed the 3 kings.




Christmas Card I sent the Church Kids



Afterwards we came to the decision that the grown ups probably laughed louder than the kids.  We went through to have some refreshments and some of us were doing the camel dance (minus the head-butting of course) and saying how we loved the camel.

So what was the result of our Christmas Puppet Show? 

  • Children & adults both had a great time.
  • Laughter brought lots of smiles. 
  • Easy time of chatting with guests in the relaxed atmosphere.
  • Everyone saw & heard the nativity story in a way they won't forget.
  • The teenage puppeteers worked together to tell others the Message of God's Love.








God is so good to us all of the time but often we don't see this and miss out on the great enjoyment we can have in our Christian walk, we forget to smile and enjoy being with others.


Of course just as the verse above says we need to have wisdom and choose good friends and companions.








Perhaps we need to see & hear God's word in a way that we don't want to forget it but rather spread it around so that everyone can hear & see God's Love because God wants us to do that for Him, 

Yes - US - the ones who know it all first-hand.
