Babies - PreK

We believe that young children deserve a unique ministry tailored to meet their special developmental needs. 

Early Childhood care is offered at both 9a and 10:30a. We are ready to accept children at 8:45a and they can stay through both hours so that you can attend service and a Sunday Morning Group.



  1. Nursery & Tots - We provide more than just childcare. We offer a loving environment and are working with these youngsters to learn more about God. We offer them a story and songs each week that will help them learn the basic truths.
  2. Wee Worship - This program is offered at 9a and brings our preschoolers (older 2's-PreK) together in one group. This is like "Children's Church." We offer a lesson, Bible verse and songs.
  3. Wee Grow - This program is offered at 10:30a and puts the kids in their age appropriate rooms. During this Sunday School hour the kids get the same message, told in a way that they can understand according to their age, crafts, center time and music.


We have found that kids really get a lot out of both Wee Worship and Wee Grow.
By teaching this way we are trying to reach kids by using methods that help them learn best.
Come and check us out!
