At First Baptist, we celebrate each child as a gift from God and offer a loving environment.
The First Baptist preschool ministry serves children from birth through kindergarten and their families by providing a safe, clean and happy Christian environment for the preschool-age child when he is at church. FBC provides a nurturing environment where each child begins to learn about God's love through Bible stories, songs, and play as we minister to the physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual needs of the child through developmentally appropriate activities. These opportunities led by caring and loving adults are laying a spiritual foundation that will lead each child to a deeper learning and understanding of Jesus and His great love.
This ministry also seeks to support and encourage parents and guardians who have the blessing and responsibility of raising their children.
Preschool Sunday School
Our desire in preschool Sunday School is to help our preschoolers learn about God, Jesus, the natural world, families, others, and self thru' age-appropriate Bible stories, songs, and activities. Caring loving adults build a spiritual foundation that will lead preschoolers to deeper learning and understanding of God's love.
Classes for Birth-Kindergarten meet at 9:45 on the second floor in the Preschool Suite.
Extended Teaching Time (ETC)
ETC is an extension of Sunday School for preschoolers during the Worship hour. Planned activities continue with the Sunday School emphasis.
The Parent/Child Commitment is a time to offer parents the opportunity of committing to the spiritual nourishment of their child and to emphasize the responsibility of the church toward the home and the rearing of children in the Christian way of life.
Mission Friends meets on Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. Mission Friends provides midweek fun and discipleship where preschoolers are exposed to a world outside their own. Preschoolers enjoy developmentally appropriate mission learning experiences to help them understand ways they can help others know about Jesus.
If your child has a runny nose, diarrhea, fever, or shows other symptoms of illness PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THEM IN THE ROOM. The other children and their parents will appreciate your consideration.
