The MNYS Children’s App is the Metropolitan New York Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s new and original app for kids. Available now for iPhone, iPad, and Android. The MNYS Children’s App is completely free! The app is available in the Apple Store
and Google Play
As children virtually enter the open doors of the Lutheran church, kids of all backgrounds, who speak any language, can enjoy this entirely visual interactive experience. The MNYS Children’s App is a joyful experience designed to engage and educate kids in the beauty of the accepting and welcoming love of God. Featuring six different games, children can play:
- compose a piece of music at the organ with the help of a jazzy band of mice who accompany kids on the drums, bass, guitar, and piano;
- a game of memory that showcases various cultures;
- marry a couple at church of the ethnicity and gender-identity combination that the child chooses;
- color a variety of stained glass church windows;
- spot the difference in various Biblical illustrations;
- or simply read through various pictorial Bible stories.
These games are fun and creative, allowing children to embody the radically welcoming inclusivity of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
