Catechism Songs and Resources

As a church we are memorizing the New City Catechism together. Our desire is to encourage individuals and families to memorize the New City Catechism as a part of their personal discipleship. 

Each week in Kid's Church we are learning a song and completing activities to help us memorize the full version of the catechism answer. Some catechism answers may seem quite long but we have found these resources are very helpful in aiding memorization. It is so encouraging to see even our youngest children reciting the full version of the catechism.  We want to share these songs and activities so you can use them during the week for your discipleship. 

We are especially grateful to Landon Pietrini and Matt Thalin for creating helpful songs that coorespond with the full version of the New City Catechism.
