Cradle Roll is a ministry for the families of infants and toddlers following their baptism. During the first three years of a child’s life, resources and encouragement are sent to parents on a regular schedule. This can include Bible story books, information about the child’s spiritual, emotional, and physical development, and music. The support of these parents in the early years is critical. Cradle Roll can provide not only resources but supportive, Christ-centered community with other parents with children the same age or older mentoring parents.
Resources for Cradle Roll
Cradle Roll has been designed in a number of ways over the years. Currently, Concordia Publishing House has a Growing in Christ Nursery Roll packet which provides a variety of resources for a family to encourage Biblical, age-appropriate ways to talk with their children about Jesus. They also provide a Nursery Roll Director/Coordinator Guide and a database to help manage sending these resources.
