Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.” We, too, welcome children into our Christian family, cherishing them and nurturing them so they can come into a fuller relationship with Christ and the church. Our programs do not simply provide information about God, but create an environment for encounters with God through worship, biblical exploration, prayer, and fellowship.

  • Beulah Land

    Ages 0-3.5 (with CAREGIVER)

    Nursery, 9:30 AM

    Our youngest children and their parents/caregivers gather for this short time (about 15-20 minutes) of singing songs and experiencing a colorful felt board Bible story. The Beulah Land curriculum is designed to help the very young develop and nurture a visual vocabulary of faith. It not only teaches children Bible stories, but also opens the world of Scripture to their imaginations. Several faith themes are repeated throughout the Beulah Land flannel board scripts: “God has never stopped loving us,” “God’s love is always enough and more than enough,” and “Hear the story and let it change you.” After the story time, parents often sit and chat together while their children play. It provides a wonderful environment for parents and children to get to know each other better.

    Beulah Land Storytellers: Joanna Kline, Sue Savarese, and Mother Susan Russell
