In LifeWay’s VBS, Game On! kids learn how to “gear up for God’s big game”!

“LifeWay’s VBS invites your kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage one another. Get in the spirit today with Game On! VBS.”

Here are some KidTunz songs to add throughout the week for even more spirit at VBS or to keep the kids humming at home even after VBS is over:

“Be Brave! Be Strong!”

Be brave! Be strong! The Lord your God is with you.
Put faith in Him! There’s nothing He can’t do.

God walks with you like a mighty warrior.
He surrounds you with His favor like a shield.
He has put you here for such a time as this.
Now trust Him ‘til His plan is revealed.

“Cross Training”

Do the spiritual stretch. Reach for the prize.
Jump at the chance to exercise.
Sit up. Push up. Lift up. Pull up. Don’t give up.
You’re cross training for life; cross training for life.

“Power Up! (Jesus Helps You)”

“Power up! (clap, clap) Jesus helps you.
Power up! (clap, clap) Get in shape God’s way.

Power up! (clap, clap) Jesus helps you.
Power up today!

One! Two! He’ll make you a powerhouse for Him.
Three! Four! Let the Lord build you from within.”

“Firm Believers”

Firm believers, standing strong on faith.
Firm believers, exercise is what it takes
To build up those muscles of spirituality.
Firm believers, that’s what we wanna be.

Every day in every way we’re working it out;
Training to be more like Chirst.
I help you, and you help me to follow His example
So others will see Jesus in our lives.

“Jesus Cares for Everyone”

Jesus, Jesus cares for everyone. Jesus knows me and He loves me.
Jesus, I will thank You as I pray. Jesus, I will love You every day. 

“God is in Control”

God is in control. He is with me wherever I go.
God is in control. He is strong and powerful. He will help me, I know.

God knows how to help me. I believe in Him.
He is kind to hear me and give me faith to win.

“Is Your Joy Bubbling Up?”

Is your joy bubbling up?* Clap your hands, sing about Jesus.
Is your joy bubbling up?* Tell the world about His love.
Is your joy bubbling up?* Clap your hands, sing about Jesus.
Tell the world that Jesus cares!

*(Can you’re feet not stand still?)
*(Do you feel you could shout?) 

LifeWay’s Game On! VBS is a great way to integrate discipleship with exercise and activity, training both body and mind. I hope these additional songs contribute to your church’s VBS week and to the ongoing process of training the kids to love and know Jesus with every aspect of their lives.

How do you incorporate music into Vacation Bible School? What have you found effective in helping kids remember and understand VBS songs?
