Preschool Ministry
(Birth - Kindergarten)

2017-2018


About the Ministry
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.

Bible Study
Sundays 9:45-10:45 a.m.
Through play and interactive activities, babies through kindergarteners are taught that God loves them and so do their teachers and parents.

Worship
Care is provided for preschoolers ages kindergarten and younger during both the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services.

Beginning in October, children in kindergarten and first grade are invited to participate in "Learning to Worship," a worship education program designed to prepare children for worship in "Big Church."  Learning to Worship is held during the 11:00 a.m. service, October through April.

Preschool Music
