Welcome to The Good Book Storytime!

Hello and welcome! The Good Book Storytime is a library-style story program for preschoolers at Calvary Chapel Merritt Island. We meet on the first and third Wednesdays of most months to share the stories and scriptures of God's Word through rhymes, songs, felt board stories, fingerplays, picture books, crafts and snacks.

Ministering to the preschool age group is such a blessing! Their hearts are wide open and ready for God's Word to pour in and fill them up from head to toe. In fact, Jesus had a special love for the innocence and simplicity of young children, saying, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children." (Matthew 11:25, NIV) He also pointed out that the kingdom of heaven belonged to those with hearts as little children (Matthew 19:14), placing high regard to the wonder and guilelessness of childhood that makes simple, unfettered faith of even the most complicated theology.

It can also be a challenge, however, to communicate to preschoolers in a way that is meaningful and fun. The goal of this blog, therefore, is to bring together many of the resources available for the communication of God's love to preschoolers into a cohesive collection for the adults who love and minster to these precious children everyday. Picture books, songs, rhymes, felt board stories, crafts, creative snacks and more can help the world of the Bible come alive to small children!

So whether you are a Sunday School teacher, a grade school librarian, a preschool teacher, a parent, a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, or whatever! Come on in, have a seat and join us for The Good Book Storytime!
