Welcome to First Kids Preschool Ministry at First Baptist Church. Our ministry focuses on building a spiritual foundation for each child based on the key elements of church: evangelism, worship, ministry, fellowship and discipleship. We recognize that the preschool years are a crucial time of learning in a child’s life and want to utilize this life stage by pouring God’s Word and love through our Preschool Programming.

The First Baptist Preschool Ministry desires to worship God, tell others of God’s Love and His precious gift through His son Jesus, teach how the Bible relates to our daily lives, and help develop trust and love with each child and his/her family.

You can catch a glimpse of all the different ministry opportunities that we offer for preschoolers and their families. On the right side of the screen you can click on the link to find out more about the ministries you are interested in. 

Sunday School

This is the Sunday morning Bible learning time provided for children birth through Kindergarten. Each preschool class is either developmentally or age-graded.

The Spiritual development of the child rests primarily on the parents, but we at First Baptist want to do all we can to equip you to be the best "teacher" you can be and to help your child develop a love for learning about Jesus.
