Nurturing Nest

Nurturing Nest: Mommy & Me – Music, Bible Stories, and Play

The Lord shall feed his flock like a shepherd: the Lord shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
Isaiah 40:11

The Congregational Church of New Canaan will offer programs for very young children designed to facilitate their spiritual nurture and understanding. This Christian Mommy and Me program, lovingly called “Nurturing Nest” will feature age-appropriate music, Bible Stories and interactive play around a monthly theme (love, joy, peace, etc). Acting Associate Minister to Children, Youth, and Families the Rev. Kibbie Laird says, “Many of the families who have moved to town during Covid have very young children and are looking to meet other young families and find a spiritual home.” 

The Congregational Church welcomes both members and prospective members wherever they are on their faith journey and wants to offer a safe space for young children and their parents to gather weekly and explore our Christian faith together. If you are looking for connection, and a place for your children to explore their faith, we hope you will come to God’s Acre. 

In lieu of an admission fee, the Congregational Church hopes each family will consider supporting one of our monthly mission partners, showing their children from an early age what it means “to love our neighbors.”
