Welcome to Preschool Ministry where we pray, plan and play with a purpose! We believe that each child is created in the image of God and we want to love them and help them grow like Jesus did!

We’ve designed our preschool environment very intentionally to allow our youngest children to experience God’s love for them! Each child is assigned a room based on either their age or stage of development. Encouraging and nurturing teachers care for your children and provide fun hands-on learning experiences for them to feel loved and learn foundational biblical truths about God’s great big love for them. Our fantastic team members are passionate about each child feeling valued and loved by us, and more importantly, by Jesus. All preschool team members are screened, background checked and trained. Preschool areas are cleaned and sanitized following each meeting time.

Please plan to arrive about 15-20 minutes early to register. Outdoor teal banners indicate preschool entrances.

Please feel free to contact us at 757-461-3226 or email us with any questions.
