“Children are a blessing from the Lord.” Psalm 127:3

As the father of three children and grandpa to three grandkids, I can attest to the excitement & adventure of parenting, but it’s also a huge responsibility. The decisions & choices we make early in our children’s lives will affect them for the rest of their lives. This is especially true in the spiritual realm. The Preschool Ministry wants to partner with you, & offer encouragement & support as you raise your children. When your child is at First Baptist, the Preschool Ministry offers a special environment for them to feel loved & cared for, with both paid & volunteer workers who have been specially trained. All of our staff members have been thoroughly screened for security. We also want to provide experiences that enable them to hear about the love of Jesus, know the Bible is a special book about God & Jesus, & begin associating God & Jesus with feelings of wonder, love, and happiness.
