Babies - Preschool
Gives children birth through preschool a first impression of their loving, Heavenly Father in such a way that it creates a lasting impression in the heart of a child.
Adventure Zone Incites Wonderin the heart of a preschooler
We believe preschool ministry is more than just babysitting. It's laying a critical foundation for faith in the life of a child.
The curriculum incites wonder by giving preschoolers a first impression (or look) at their loving heavenly Father. The curriculum keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. It also helps children understand worship and introduces them to small group time. It's all part of the plan to help a child believe the three key elements of wonder by age five.
The curriculum helps preschoolers embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination and is designed so that each preschooler will grow up believing that:
Sundays at 11 a.m.
We meet every Sunday at 11 a.m. Kids can arrive as early as 10:45 to play and engage with some fun activities before we get started.
The environment in which preschoolers come together for the Bible story and fun, energetic worship that will get them moving!
This is the part where kids review the Bible story and participate in fun activities that help them to apply the story to their lives to grow in their relationship with Jesus. This safe environment builds trust as children learn about God through the loving care of consistent leaders who embrace them in order to see God’s love and meet God’s family.

What We Are Talking About
This month is all about Jesus and how He taught the disciples to be fishers of men. How did they learn to be fishers of men? Well, they followed Jesus! And, we want our preschoolers to know that they can follow Jesus too!
John told people that Jesus is special
We’ll start the month with the man who introduced Jesus to the world—John the Baptist. He even baptized Him. John was famous in his own right, but he was just preparing the way for Jesus. When Jesus came to the river, John told everyone how special Jesus is.
Jesus says, “Follow Me.”
During week two, we’ll hear Jesus say, “Follow Me” to four different men. When Jesus asks you to follow Him, you drop whatever you’re doing and follow Him. Preschoolers will hear how four different fishermen went from fishing for fish to being fishers of men.
Anyone can follow Jesus
In week three, we’ll stick to the idea of “Follow Me” and meet Matthew the tax collector. Even though Matthew had made some bad choices and wasn’t liked by the masses, he still followed Jesus when He asked. We can all follow Jesus, even when we’ve made bad choices.
We celebrate Jesus because He is special
We’ll end the month with a celebration. Week four is Palm Sunday, and Palm Sunday is a party! We celebrate Jesus because He is special. He is God’s Son. When the people heard He was coming to town, they were excited and they yelled, “Hosanna! Hossana! Yay Jesus!”
