Preschool Ministry

Teaching Preschoolers and Kindergartners about Jesus

As leaders and parents, we have a responsibility to lay a foundation of faith for newborns to kindergarten-aged children. We strive to teach them about Jesus and provide a Christian example for how to live our lives. We accomplish that through a variety of ministry opportunities for preschoolers and their families.

For questions or details on how you and your child can get involved, email our office, or call us at (205) 822-1670 ext. 513.

Kindergarten and Weekday Preschool

Our Early Learning Center is a part-time program for children ages eight months to 5K. Children are challenged to learn through educational hands-on experiences, inspired to love through spiritual example and guidance, and encouraged to live by exploring and thinking for themselves. Our staff is dedicated and excited to provide each child with his or her own loving and nurturing atmosphere, where all individuals can grow and thrive within a Christ-like environment.

Children with Special Needs

Hand in Hand

We also have a Hand in Hand Ministry for children with special needs. Hand in Hand seeks to provide each child what is best for them while at church. Children have the option of remaining in a Hand in Hand classroom or attending Sunday School with a buddy (a helper to assist them) during Sunday and Wednesday activities. For more information, please email Amy Kirby, our Special Needs Coordinator, or visit the Special Needs web page.
