God Cares for Us! Jesus is our friend! The Bible is a special book!

Preschool ministry gives our youngest children (Birth through Kindergarten) a loving environment filled with hands on learning experiences, to learn these and other Biblical foundational truths. Children learn best through play and teaching is based on fun-filled learning centers.

LIFEgroups for Birth through Kindergarten: 9:30 and 11:00 am


To ensure the security and safety of each child we use the security check-in system Checkpoint.  Parents will be directed to a kiosk to check-in their child. They will receive a name badge for the child and a parent badge, which will show a new and unique matching number each week for security purposes. First time guests please sign-in at the Preschool or Children’s Desks.

We also offer...

Family Worship Room in 229 (Sundays), Nursing Area in room 102, and On-Site Pagers.


A worship experience for little ones! Big God, Little People is is designed for children age 4 through Kindergarten. It is an exciting time of worship in a fun, interactive setting.


We desire for every child to have a place where they can learn about God’s love and where families can worship and serve.  We ask that parents register their child so that we may know best how to meet their needs.  We use combinations of an orientation, short-term pull out class, and integration of special needs children into the existing LIFEgroups with ‘buddies'.

June 22-26
Kempsville Road and Volvo Location

Look up—way up. That’s where we’re headed. Where I-beams float effortlessly high overhead, carefully guided into place by powerful machinery. Where steel and glass converge in a colossal design that appears to almost touch the sky. These magnificent structures were elaborately designed and intricately built. Yet they all began the same way—with concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes; and most importantly, a solid foundation. This summer, kids will grab their hard hats and head out to the construction site to discover that skyscrapers aren’t the only things that need a rock solid foundation.  If you have questions, please contact the Children's Ministry at children@firstnorfolk.org or 802-9516.
