Preschool Ministry

*We are currently offering nursery at the 11:00 service for children ages 0-5 only.


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14)  At First Baptist, we are dedicated to sharing God's love and welcoming each child into a family of faith beginning at birth.

It is our joy to partner with families of preschoolers during this fun stage.  There are many ministry opportunities for preschoolers to participate in as they grow.  Our preschool ministry emphasizes learning through play, creating an environment that understands the unique and fun age of preschoolers.  We value your preschooler and family, and we invite you to come play with us.
