At Church of the Cross, children are invited to participate in a special sermon time created just for them, a time when Bible stories are paired with children's picture books. Word for Children helps the very young make connections with stories foundational for faith while encouraging interest in reading and literature. Biblical stories and children's book authors and titles can be found by using the links below or with the site's search engine at the top of the page. If you follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), it may be helpful to search based on the scripture passage itself. Searching by book and chapter (eg. Matthew 12) will return a list of all stories in that chapter. All children's bibles and books are linked directly to Amazon. Purchasing books through these links supports the ministry of Word for Children.
