“But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.’” (Matthew 19:14)
At First Baptist Church, we desire to provide a safe and loving environment for preschoolers to learn about God’s love for them and the beautiful world that he created for them to live in. Our mission is to share the message of God’s love, and through that message to develop in young children a growing faith that can lead to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ when they are ready and able to accept him as their Lord and Savior.
Throughout the year, we provide many opportunities for these precious little ones to worship, learn, and grow. We hope you will visit our Preschool Ministry page often for the latest information about special events and happenings for your family!
LifeWay Kids at Home
Looking for an easy way to help your kids stay in God’s Word while they aren’t able to attend Sunday School?
The LifeWay Kids team has created a free, temporary, at-home resource that allows families to conduct weekly media-driven kids Bible studies at home: the LifeWay Kids at Home and LifeWay Preschool at Home Digital Pass experiences.
Within each Digital Pass experience, families can access weekly Activity Pages, a conversation guide, and a series of videos to watch and discuss. Materials include a Bible Story video, Life Application video, a kids connection video, a missions video, and gospel presentation resources. New sessions will be updated weekly at midnight on Thursday nights so that families can have fresh content every weekend. You can access the LifeWay Kids at Home and LifeWay Preschool at Home Digital Pass experiences any time over the next 10 weeks through the end of the Spring quarter.
To access the free LifeWay Kids at Home and LifeWay Preschool at Home resources, follow these three simple steps:
1) Go to digitalpass.lifeway.com
2) Log in or create your own account (It’s free!)
3) Click the LifeWay Kids (or Preschool) at Home icon on the main page of Digital Pass
The provided content is taken from current-cycle material in LifeWay’s Bible Studies for Life: Kids broadly graded curriculum for 1-6th graders.
