Welcome to the Preschool Ministry of First Baptist Church. Our teachers and classrooms are overflowing with excitement as we seek to love and nurture your preschooler. When your children come to FBC, they are not just coming to a nursery, but instead are entering a designated and designed space of fun, safety, and biblical learning. Every time your preschooler visits, they will experience Bible truths and stories in a relevant and meaningful way. We believe whole-heartedly that even babies can learn and sense God’s love and security as dedicated teachers care for them at church.
When your family visits our nursery you will use our check-in system at the nursery reception desk. There will be a sign-in sheet to help us gather information on your child, let us know how to reach you while you are in church, and it tells us who will be picking up your child after the services. After checking in, you will then be escorted to your child’s room where they will be greeted by loving nursery and LifeGroup leaders. All of our nursery workers and volunteers are background checked and trained to provide the best care for your children while they are under our care.
SAFETY AND HEALTH POLICIES
We value the health and safety of every child in our care. Please view our safety and health policies by clicking here.
We ask that all parents volunteer on a rotation to help during our worship service, called “extended session” in the nursery. You will be mailed a lesson with suggested activities and your scheduled date to volunteer. If you cannot volunteer on that day, please call another volunteer on the extended session rotation list.
CHILDCARE DURING LIFEGROUPS AND MORNING WORSHIP
During the LifeGroups hour and morning worship, your child will be cared for and will have age appropriate Bible stories and activities. Preschoolers will have a Bible story, a snack, activities and play time centered on their lesson. Our infants and toddlers will be prayed for, will hear Bible stories, songs, and Bible truths during their time in the nursery. Our focus is to lay a “sure foundation” leading children to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
PARENT’S NIGHT OUT
Would you and your spouse like a quiet date night? FBC members are invited to join us once a quarter for Parents’ Night Out! It begins at 5:30 ends at 9:30 and is open to newborns-6th graders. During the four hour stay, the children will eat supper (provided by parents), then we have a long free play period. We usually have a theme and we try to match our activities to the theme. We will do a crafty project or something in the kitchen. We have baked and decorated many cookies and cupcakes and made homemade ice cream. We usually end the night with a movie and popcorn. The children have a great time while the parents get a much needed break!
WEDNESDAY NIGHTS (SEPTEMBER-MAY)
Preschoolers ages 2-4 years join our Wednesday Night Program First Friends. First Friends is a time that children rotate between classes of missions, Bible stories and music, learning more from God’s word and the importance of the Gospel. The nursery is also available for infants to parents attending FBC’s Wednesday night activities. The nursery opens at 5:25pm.
Join us Sunday at 9:00 AM for LifeGroups and at 10:15 AM for Worship
