VBS and Bible Club Curriculum

Shout for joy to the Lord!

“Every week, children’s worship leaders work up a sweat keeping younger kids engaged and older kids from being 'too cool' to sing or dance. While we may feel successful as leaders when kids are singing along, God is more interested in the posture of children’s hearts than the actions of their bodies. If you want your kids to stop going through the motions of worship and start to truly worship God, use this curriculum!” 
John Murchison, Managing Editor, Austin Stone Resources, Children’s Director at Austin Stone for 12 years

Clap Your Hands, Stomp Your Feet Song CD by Sojourn Music

Kids love to sing, clap, and dance. Each time we lead kids in worship, we instinctively call them to worship responsively: “Clap your hands! Sing out! Shout hallelujah!” One of the dangers in teaching kids to worship this way is that we sometimes call for responses without showing kids a clear picture of the Father they are responding to. The songs on the Clap Your Hands, Stomp Your Feet Song CD teach children the “why” behind our worship and calls them to respond to God’s grace and goodness through fun, active praise.

PROOF Pirates Song CD by Sojourn Music

The message of grace is that what we do or what we look like does not determine who we are as Christians. What God determined for us through the work of His Son Jesus makes us who we are. Kids need grace to make them silly with joy in God and strong in their budding faith. That's our prayer for this album.
