In our Preschool Ministry, our faithful volunteers care for your child in a safe and fun atmosphere. Using God’s word, preschoolers learn that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
Preschool classes are for children ages 3, 4, and Pre-K 5 (room is based on age as of 9/30/12). Moving preschoolers in age groups rather than having children self-promote on their birthdays serves several important functions: kids can build friendships with a consistent groups of peers and leaders can make promotion time extra comfortable as kids move to a new room.
Kids are divided into two classes by age: 3s and 4s/Pre-K 5s. Each preschool class includes Bible storytelling, singing, play time and fun activities. The curriculum—Bible lesson and activities—is similar for both preschool classes, but the mix of these activities will match the age and development of the kids in the class.
Parents play a vital role in helping kids to know and love God. Although our weekend class time with kids is an important factor in nurturing young Christians, the biggest impact comes from Mom and Dad. We look forward to partnering with you in leading your kids to a lifelong relationship with Jesus.
We use the First Look curriculum which we believe will give your preschooler a firm faith foundation. We focus on one key truth each month, giving each week a new twist and fresh activities, while repeating the main concept. Each week is full of objects for kids to touch, wild and wiggly activities to get them moving, crafts they will love getting into, and real-life situations they can relate to. The First Look curriculum introduces your child to three strong building blocks that create the base upon which their relationship with their heavenly Father can be built upon.
These building blocks are referred to as three basic truths:
God Made Me
God Loves Me
Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
