RF Kids: Preschool
Our goal is loving little ones and helping their parents to feel confident about that care as they find their own places to serve and grow spiritually.
Checkpoints: These are principles that we want every child to grasp:
God made me
God loves me
Jesus wants to be my friend forever
Sunday School 8:15 a.m. & 10:00a.m., 11:15 p.m.
Wednesday Nights 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
We teach these 3 truths each week using the great stories of the Bible with activities that engage all 5 senses. Volunteers provide security on the Lower Level, guest assistance at check-in, snack services, and weekly teachers for Birth-5 year olds. There is a role for every parent to plug in and serve to assure quality and safe care for all of Rich Fork’s youngest.
