Hello, church family.
Each week, this page will be updated with fresh materials for families seeking to engage their faith at home. Be sure to join Pastor Reuben for Promiseland Online—an interactive place for worship, storytelling, and encouragement.
We will post a new episode on this page and on our social media pages every Wednesday at 3pm.

Kids’ Bible Devotional:
“Growing in God’s Love”
Looking for a great Bible devotional for kids age 5-10? Here is my top pick and reasons for recommending it:
Digestible Story Length: Each story, which is retold from compilations of several verses or chapters, are short. This helps hold the attention of young readers.
Classic Stories and Beyond Included: All the classic stories you’d hope for from a children’s Bible are included here. This exposes children to the foundational texts of the faith. Additionally, texts not usually seen in children’s Bibles are here, too. Special attention is paid to include stories about women.
Culturally Appropriate Illustrations: This book is illustrated by twenty-one artists, all listed near the back of the Bible, to give the illustrations a wide range of styles. Figures are shown with olive skin and dark hair, honoring the Bible’s Middle Eastern context.
Reflection Questions Included: At the end of most stories, Hear, See and Act questions encourage the children to explore. These neither moralize or editorialize the story but simply invite participation.
