Grow, Proclaim, Serve! Babies & Woddlers provides a ministry program for children to learn, live, and grow in the Christian faith from the moment of birth. This annual resource will guide leaders and parents as they nurture babies and woddlers in the beginning of their Christian faith.
New format includes sixteen 11 x 14 full-color posters of photographic images that will also contain Common English Bible Scripture verses and finger plays. Nestled within the interior of the posters is a 16-page leader guide for teachers explaining how to use the posters, incorporating music into the nursery, additional finger plays, and helpful information for caregivers about the faith formation of babies. Free online downloadable forms available that churches can use in their nurseries (parent information, checklists, release statements).
