Waumba Land

A few people have asked, when I’ve invited them to Access Church, if we have a “nursery” up and running yet.

“Do we ever!!” is usually my unbridled response. You see, I have a three-year-old, and I’m such a big fan of what our volunteers have created for pre-schoolers. You really ought to check it out this Sunday. It’s so much more than a nursery!

Waumba Land is actually a small group environment for preschoolers. “Waumba” is the Swahilian word for Creator, and so the environment of Waumba Land emphasizes the Genesis story of creation. The rooms are designed to emphasize various nature themes: forests, oceans, heaven, jungles, etc.

The curriculum in Waumba is very intentional. We want pre-schoolers to know that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. They get to learn this in small groups while their parents are enjoying the adult worship environment.

Every pre-schooler should come and check out this environment on Sunday evening at UNF. And bring your parents!
