Children’s Church Songs: 20 Great Tunes for Worshiping With Kids

children's church songs

Music is a highlight of every worship service, no matter the age of participants. For children’s church songs, it’s important to use material that’s biblical and easy to follow. Look for worship songs that quote Scripture verses and teach Bible principles.

For younger kids, search for children’s church songs that feature lots of repetition. Also use videos that show motions. Older kids appreciate videos that showcase kids their age. And showing lyrics on the screen helps everyone keep up.

Children’s church songs range from Sunday school standards to modern-day praise and worship. Online, you’ll find videos of worship music for kids for all seasons and holidays. So it’s easy to tailor the songs to each week’s children’s church sermon or message.

Upbeat tunes help grab kids’ attention and get out their wiggles. Slower tunes, meanwhile, allow children to focus on the meaning of what they’re singing. No matter which style of children’s church songs works best for you, God will use the music to reach young hearts.

To get you started, we’ve collected 20 children’s church songs your kids will love. Check them out, and see which ones will be a hit in your children’s ministry!
