What is Cradle Roll?
Any child ranging from birth to age 4, even if not a Salvationist, can, with the parent’s permission, be a
member of the Cradle Roll.
Cradle Roll is about making a positive difference in the spiritual development of young children and
supporting and resourcing parents during this journey. Cradle Roll is a ministry where little ones, and
their parents, are valued and nurtured in a loving and caring Christian community.
How is this done?
There are many opportunities to support parents and their very young children:
- Mailing birthday and other cards
- Cradle Roll parties
- Parenting classes
- Visitation and pastoral care
- Dedication services
- Special Observance Cradle Roll Sunday
- Nursery care that is more than just babysitting
- Age appropriate Sunday School class
Mommy/Daddy (or other caregiver) and Me programs—Baby Song, gym club, story time,
breakfast club, afternoon out, etc.
All nursery staff workers and church leaders have undergone a strict background check and completed a
Safe From Harm training to ensure that all children are in a safe, loving, protective environment.
