PreSchool Ministry: Birth to 4 Years

The Preschool ministry area focuses on the foundational and formative years from birth through kindergarten. Our desire is to help parents in their important responsibility of guiding preschoolers into a growing knowledge of Jesus Christ. We provide a loving and safe environment where center based activity programs allow freedom of exploration and discovery.

Here are some helpful tips for your preschooler to have a great experience on Sunday mornings.
  • Security Tags: Outside of each of our preschool classrooms is a cart that has a basket of security tags. We ask that all parents take a tag, place the clipped tag to their child, and then keep the other one to use to pick up their child. You MUST present the security tag upon pick up your child. The volunteer for your child’s classroom will match the two tags upon pick up and return them to the basket.
  • Parent Drop-off and Pick-up: Please do not enter the rooms. We ask that you wait at the door until a worker greets you there. They will take/return your child to you along with diaper bags.
  • Snacks & Drinks: We have some children with severe allergies. The church provides saltine crackers or plain cheerios and water in the rooms (age appropriate) which do not pose a threat. Please do not send in snacks with your child. Our workers will have an organized snack time or individual snack depending on their age. (Note: This does not apply to baby milk bottles. However, please make sure your bottles and caps are labeled with your child’s name to eliminate confusion and potential mix ups.)
  • Label Personal Items: Please label all items that you bring to the church. We request a bag tag on all diaper bags and your child’s name on all bottles & caps, sippy cups (please, water only), blankets, jackets, burp cloths, etc. We try our best to keep everyone’s things separate and returned to the right person but sometimes it gets a little hectic in the classroom

Family Covenant Day

One of the greatest joys in life is becoming a parent. We want to begin walking alongside you as you begin one of the greatest adventures that you will ever undertake… parenting!!! Baby dedication is not a checkmark on a long list of things that you are “supposed” to do when you have a child, but rather a starting point for you as a parent to commit to leading your child to know Jesus. We think that the things that you do now will shape who and what your child will become later.

If you are interested in participating in one of our Family Covenant Day celebrations please contact, Lauren Dunn, Children’s Ministry Assistant, at ldunn@jcbc.org.
