Why Should We Use Music in Children's Ministry?

The songs I learned as a child have been with me all my life. How many of us can remember a popular tune or a TV theme song from our youth, yet we can't remember where we put our keys! Music becomes part of our memory bank. God created music and movement. In the same way that King Saul was pleased by David's harp, Psalm 149 describes God delighting in His people as they worship and praise their Creator. He has given us voices to sing and feet to dance! Plus, there is music in heaven. John describes the throne room of God in the book of Revelation as he paints an incredible picture of elders bending before the Lamb, singing a "new song." Music is a form of expression from the Creator Himself!
