Form pairs. Say: Sing a few lines of your favorite praise song
for your partner. Then tell your partner why you like that song,
and what it means to you.

Allow a few minutes for kids to describe their songs; then call
everyone back together. Ask:

• What do we sing about when we sing praise songs?

• How do you feel when you sing a praise song by yourself? With
other people?

• Why is singing a good way to praise God?

Say: In Psalm 100:2, the Bible tells us: “Worship the
Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Let’s say
that together. Lead children in repeating the verse; then continue:
God has given us so many good things. Singing joyful songs about
God’s goodness is a great way to thank God for all the good things
he’s given us. Let’s choose some joyful songs we can sing together

Play the CD you’ve brought and let kids vote on which songs they
think are the most joyful. Sing the joyful songs together as a
class, or offer to lead another class in worship using the songs
you’ve chosen. Recite the memory verse together in between each
song. Then close your worship time by repeating the verse
