We are facing a unique time in history that has required innovation and imagination in order to continue our ministries in an online world.
Kidology is continuing to rise to the challenge of equipping and encouraging you and your ministry through these challenging times. We are busy creating the resources that you need to not only continue your weekly services for kids but also to train you to find new and exciting ways to reach them throughout the week.
Here you will find all these helpful resources in one place. Whether you use our Kids Church Online, want to learn to create your own services, or need at-home resources for you or your kids, here you'll find a growing list of help on Kidology.org! You'll also find resources to help as you reopen and return to in-person services.

These clips go along with it Bible Curriculum but you are welcome to use no matter what curricuulm you use!

MEDIA CONTENT YOU CAN USE IN YOUR VIDEOS:
Pastor Karl has granted royalty-free permission for his Toybox Tales Videos and Noduh, the Wise One (Yoda' cousin) videso to be used in your videos. The condition is that they must be IN your videos and not posted anywhere as a standalone video that is searchable or downloadable as a stand-alone video. This way, they will only be enjoyed by those watching your videos. We prefer unlisted links and closed groups for posting, but don't require it. We want kids to enjoy these videos!
VIDEO CONTENT! Permission granted to include ANY of over 100 Classic Toybox Tales Videos in your kids church online services/videos. The ONLY restriction is please do not upload to YouTube or other video hosting service as a stand alone video. BUT you may INCLUDE these in a complete service so they are PART of a video, not posted alone. If you have any questions, contact Kidology Support.
