Sermon Spice – www.sermonspice.com
This is a great place to go to find countdowns or video clips for use in your services. The videos cost money, but sometimes there are free ones. They will also lead you to other sites for other videos that you might be able to use. Tip: If you use the link provided to go to the video’s original site, often the video can be purchased cheaper than on the sermon spice site.
High Voltage Kids Ministry – www.highvoltage-kids.com
They have countdowns, games, PowerPoint’s, and more at decent prices.
Wingclips – www.wingclips.com
I love this site!!! Lots of video clips…many of which are free to download. You do have to sign up to download clips, but there is a free part that you can sign up for.
Youtube – www.youtube.com
Most people are familiar with this site, but you can often find fun clips that you can use in services. They often can be downloaded so that you do not have an inappropriate ad show up after the clip (as sometimes can happen). If they can’t be downloaded, make sure whoever is running your video stops it right at the end…just in case.
gfguys (Go Fish Guys) Great music for the kids
Blimeycow Messy Mondays is a weekly video put out by this family of three siblings and a spouse. Has great videos that could be used with preteens or teens. NOTE: These videos tend to be very sarcastic, so if your preteens don't connect with sarcasm, you will probably want to shy away from these videos.
BoardShorts TV Weekly funny videos that can be used for various things. Kid Snippets are my favorites. Check out "Salesman" and "Math Class".
hillsongkids This has some great music videos you can use from Hillsong
Any Kid President video is great. Several of them make great discussion starters. He doesn’t have his own channel. It is through SoulPancake.
PLEASE NOTE: Not all of SoulPancake is Kid Friendly. Kid President however, is awesome!
There are lots of fun videos out there and this list is only a very small portion, but it is a start and I hope you find it helpful. Do you have a favorite? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Until next week...
