We did it! We posted our first video to our new KidsWorld YouTube Channel. Our goal with this new YouTube page is to post content that parents can watch with their kids or just let their kids watch. 

Our hope is that a lot of these videos would be something kids might share with friends as well. The posting rhythm for now will include funny videos, Bible stories, and more. Subscribe and get the new videos when they are on YouTube!
