A YouTube channel designed specifically for children has been created by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Primary General President Camille N. Johnson announced on social media Thursday, Oct. 21.
The Gospel for Kids YouTube channel will regularly share singalong videos, “Come Draw With Me” videos, broadcasts and stories from prophets and apostles.
“Our Heavenly Father loves His children so very much,” she wrote. “Those of us who interact with children can help them feel that love. We hope this new resource for children will bless them with a confirmation that their Heavenly Father knows and loves them.
“I invite you to subscribe to the channel and share these videos with children you know.”
The YouTube channel has already published more than a dozen videos, including the 2021 Friend to Friend broadcast, a video of how to draw the Nauvoo Temple sunstone and a singalong video for “I Will Walk With Jesus.”
The Gospel for Kids app consolidates three previous gospel-focus apps for kids and has four main sections: Scripture Stories, Coloring Books, Sing Along and More Activities. It is designed to help children connect with the Savior at their level and is currently available on iOS and Android in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
The new Gospel Library section is called Children whether accessing it online or using the app. It allows children to engage with stories, videos and interactive activities and provides parents and Primary teachers with resources to create Primary and home evening lessons on a weekly basis.
