It is never too early to start learning. That’s the philosophy of Friendship Kids’ Pre-school program.
As early as the 1s and 2s class, our pre-schoolers begin learning three simple truths that are taught over and over again – God loves me, God made me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Through hands on activities, songs, and simple stories even the youngest child can begin to learn about God.
The 3s, 4s, and 5s follow a similar program that teaches them in a fun environment. More than just babysitters, our pre-school teachers truly desire to see kids learn at an early age.
To protect your child and allow you be comfortable with them being apart from you during the worship service, you will be issued a security tag upon entrance to each room. This tag has a number that will be used to page you if there is a problem during the service. This tag must also be presented to pick up each child after the service to ensure safety in returning each child to the appropriate adult.
A nursery for “bed babies” and “crawlers” is also fully functional with sanitized facilities and updated toys and equipment. Qualified volunteers take care of these children while their parents participate in the worship service.
Service team opportunities include weekly and monthly rotations working with the different age groups. For more information, contact Pre-school director.
In a world where X-box and HD TV are commonplace in kids’ lives the old ways of flannel graph characters and coloring books have lost impact. What’s the cure?
An exciting environment full of high energy music, hands on object lessons, entertaining story times, creative multi-media, and much more all take place in a small group setting. Week after week your kids will be begging to come back.
The curriculum revolves around one virtue each month to drive home simple truths to our kids. “God Time Cards” and a “Refrigerator Door” accompany each child home each week to help you, as a family, to continue emphasizing what was learned Sunday morning.
Groups are available for children ages Kindergarten to 5th Grade at the 10:00 service.
Service teams get involved by helping with small group time, teaching the large group, helping with crafts and object lessons, leading the music and much more. If you are interested in serving on one of these teams, contact our children's director.
