Promiseland at Willow Wheaton
Promiseland at Willow Wheaton is held in the building adjacent to the Main Auditorium (Wheaton Academy's Fine Arts Center) during both services.
Promiseland exists so that kids can encounter God through His Word and His people. Each Sunday morning Promiseland teaches God's Word through drama, music, activity stations and creative teaching. We provide age-appropriate Bible lessons that are both developmentally and spiritually appropriate for your child, as well as fun. Starting at age two, we provide a small group experience for your child, where a committed and caring leader interacts with kids so they can apply those lessons at home, school or with their friends.

Promiseland Summer Reading Cards
The Preschool version: For early readers or not-quite-yet readers, we offer a challenge based on The Bible App for Kids. This app is interactive and goes through 41 different Bible stories. Kids can either go through these stories on their own or with friends, siblings, parents, babysitters - whoever! After they complete each story, they color in an image on their sheet. After completing all 41 stories, they bring the sheet back to Promiseland and earn a fun Promiseland summer t-shirt! We'll hand this challenge out to 4s, 5s, and Kindergarteners.
Elementary Summer Reading Card
The Elementary version: For kids that can read with some help all the way up to the kids that fly through chapter books on their own, this challenge is based on time spent reading from the New Testament. Like with the preschool version, kids can read individually or with other people. We recommend spending 15 minutes a day reading to complete this challenge. After each 15 minutes spent, kids will mark off a box on their sheet. The sheet will fill up after 5 hours total of reading, and then they'll bring the sheet back to Promiseland and earn a t-shirt as well. We'll hand this challenge out to kids in 1st-5th grade.
