BIRTH - PRE-K

OUR MISSION

To place the love of Jesus in the hearts of young children.

WHAT TO EXPECT

We are dedicated to providing a warm, loving, Christ-centered environment for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Our purpose is to demonstrate and teach the love of Jesus in patience, caring and joy, through specially developed, age-appropriate curriculum. During each of the Saturday evening and Sunday morning worship services, our infants and toddlers are nurtured and loved, while our three and four-year-olds enjoy a unique story time with the “Bible Story Teller,” which includes Bible-teaching and worship in song and prayer. In the individual classrooms Bible-crafts and activities reinforce the story, and children get to have fun playtime too!
