Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."
Matthew 19:14

Our Preschool Ministry is offered for children ages 3 through Kindergarten.
This includes Sunday School classes, Wednesday night activities, and other special activities.

We train children to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through fun, educational, and age-appropriate activities in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment.

We consider it a privilege to work with each child in guiding them toward the time when they will come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. 

Sunday Mornings

Join us for Sunday School: 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

During our Sunday school hour, our Preschool classes, as well as all of our children and youth classes, are being taught from a curriculum that is purchased from Lifeway.  The Gospel Project is what is taught at this time.  

The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered ongoing weekly Bible study resource that looks at the big picture of God's story: the story of redemption through Jesus Christ. Each week, kids of all ages will follow a chronological timeline of Bible events while learning how each story points to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Wee Worship
During the 10:45 a.m. Worship Service

During our morning Worship Services, we offer a Wee Worship for Preschoolers aged 3 to Kindergarten.  This takes place in our Preschool Department in Room A.

There is a specific time during the worship service that the children will need to be brought to this service by their parent or guardian.  This is noted in our bulletin and on the slides projected in the sanctuary.

If you are interested in volunteering for this ministry, please contact Kelly McElveen.  

First Baptist PlaySchool

PlaySchool is a ministry of First Baptist Church with a long history of providing a Christian atmosphere where preschoolers can freely socialize with their peers. It is an important first step in learning to find his/her place in a classroom setting as we prepare them for traditional school. All learning that takes place at  Playschool is designed with the primary focus on helping form children with a high level of functionality within a group. Our main goals are to teach them God’s incredible love for them and how to play well with others within a classroom setting.  If you have any questions about Playschool, please do not hesitate to give Kelly a call.
