Welcome to Journeyland!


Sunday Mornings

Welcome to Journeyland, the children’s department at Marietta First Church of the Nazarene. We feel it is our responsibility and privilege to help develop, nurture, and teach children to become spiritually mature. To do this, we provide many opportunities for fellowship, fun and discipleship.

We provide a staffed nursery for all services for infants and toddlers up to 3 years of age.

Once children reach the age of three, they attend the “Praise and Play” class where they learn about the Bible through stories, movies, games, songs, and hands on activities. This class meets during the 10:15AM service each Sunday as well as during Sunday School at 9:00AM.

Children in grades kindergarten through 6th grades are in a rotation program where the children learn about the Bible through stories, crafts or cooking, computer activities, drama, and video. Since we all learn through different methods the children experience a new area each week while learning about the same subject for one month.

During the Sunday School hour (9:00AM) our children in 1st through 6th grade also enjoy the rotation program but learn a different subject.

Wednesday Evenings

On Wednesday evenings at 7PM, the children are engaged in games, activities, and devotions as they learn how God wants us to treat others and who He wants us to be.

Kitchen: Children do hands on cooking to learn more about the Bible.

Computer Room: Children always hear about the Bible, then play a game on the computer that helps reinforce what they have learned.

Drama Room: Children learn about the Bible through drama.
