In preschool, our littlest attendees learn that God loves them. Whether it's being rocked in the nursery, listening to a book being read, or acting out a story from the Bible, the children experience God through the loving care of our volunteers.
Our vision is for each preschool child to be given the tools to develop a firm spiritual foundation that will prepare his/her heart to accept Christ and serve Him. Our preschool seeks to help each child grow into a disciple of Christ.
We believe that a healthy preschool disciple:
P - Prays daily
R - Receives the biblical steps for salvation
E - Engages in Bible memory
S - Sees the Bible as Truth
C - Can recite basic Bible stories
H - Holds missionaries up in prayer
O - Obeys God
O - Offers gifts to Jesus
L - Loves God and respects His house
E - Expresses God's love to others
R - Recognizes the pastors
S - Shares in family worship
NURSERY (BIRTH TO 24 MONTHS)

Nurseries are staffed during the 9 AM service (Sunday School) and the 10:30 AM service (Children's Church). A paging system is in place for parents' peace of mind.
PRESCHOOL SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday School classes is at 9 AM where dedicated teachers share God's Word on a preschool level.
At 10:15 AM all preschoolers meet in The Fort with Ms. Patty for Sing Along. Here the children learn the verse, practice songs, and play games all related to the monthly theme. Then it's time for Children's Church.
At 10:45am the preschoolers are taken to their classrooms for Children's Church. Here a dedicated team of teachers take a monthly turn to teach children 24 months through 5 years where they will hear Bible stories, make crafts, and even go to The Courtyard for some hands on experience. There, they might "camp out," board the 10 Commandment Train, or dive deep into the ocean to learn more about God.

As of September 2020, during the 10:30am service we offer full-time ministry with parents dropping off their children prior to the start of the service and following check-in procedures including temperature checks.
