Children's Church Curriculum Reviews - KidsOwn Worship!

Group's Kids Own Worship Leader Guide, Projects-with-a-Purpose Leader Guide, Skits Booklet, VHS Tape (8 parts), Songs from FaithWeaver CD (26 tracks), Poster and Binder Full of SongsWhen it comes to resources for children's church, another resource worth taking a look at is Group's KidsOwn Worship curriculum. This curriculum is part of the FaithWeaver line of resources and the lessons coordinate with FaithWeaver Sunday School curriculum. Allow me to share with you some information about KidsOwn Worship . . . 
Strengths -
  • Biblically Sound
  • Creative lessons with lots of activity
  • Each kit includes Leader Guide, FaithWeaver Worship DVD, Songs From FaithWeaver® CD, Children's Church Video and Preschool Skit Book-
  • Unified scope
  • Colorful graphics
  • Flexible - you can combine ages or separate - whatever works for your church 
  • Teacher's devotionals and Bible background are excellent
  • "Point driven" lessons - each activity reinforces the point so children will leave with the main point being taught in several different ways
Would like to see - 
  • Weekly "Live-it" activities to help children take what they learn out the doors of the church and live it in their everyday lives every day. (FaithWeaver's Sunday School curriculum has this, but if you only use the KidsOwn Worship, you will need to add it)
  • Quarterly service projects to "Put Feet to Their Faith"
  • Parent materials to continue the learning at home
KidsOwn Worship resources are written with the goal of intentionally engaging children so they are able to remember, understand and live God's Word for genuinely changed lives. If you are looking for a Large Group/Small Group curriculum with a focus on worshiping God this curriculum is well worth taking a look at to see if it may be a good "fit" for your ministry! Group says, "When kids worship God, amazing things happen. Touching the heart of God, changing the hearts of kids! At KidsOwn Worship® Children's Church, kids sing…shout…and celebrate God's goodness and love. This kids' church program gives you all you need in one quarterly kit-13 engaging, 30- to 60-minute sessions with children's church lessons that get your kids exploring why God is worthy of their praise.
