Care for children under 2
Jesus is personal and meets each of us, no matter our age or place in life!
We want your children to know they are valuable, loved, safe, and seen by both God and us.
Our weekly preschool and elementary programs are designed to be fun, engaging, and age appropriate.
WELCOME: Our team will greet you downstairs at our children's entrance (back of the church, lower level).
REGISTER: Our front desk team will help or you can fill out our first-time family form online.
SECURITY: Each child and parent will be given a security tag at check-in used for drop-off and pick-up.
DROP-OFF: We will walk you and your child to their class and introduce you to the teachers.
LEARNING: Kids will explore weekly Bible truths through songs, games, crafts, and story telling. Our weekly take home helps you continue the conversation.
PICK-UP: After the service you can pick-up your child from their class. We are confident they had a great time!

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.
Preschoolers need the freedom to learn about Jesus and Biblical truths in a way that is fun and engaging. Everything we do is intentional to meet a child where they are and ensure they know God loves them.
service times: 9:30 am & 11:00 am

"We understand this may be the very first place where your child learns to trust outside of your family. We want to give you as a parent a safe place where you can take a deep breath and know your child is being cared for well. Your children are welcome as young as you are comfortable with bringing them because we know you need time to grow and connect!"
Our goal is to partner with parents in order to lead children to a personal faith in Jesus, form a deep love for God's Word, and to encourage a love for the people God has created
Each week we strive to give our children solid foundations that are unwavering and unchanging, based on Christ, and what God has given us through His Word.
We strive to use games, crafts, songs, and other creative methods to help the truth of the our Bible lessons take root in their hearts and minds.

"The Lord uses our children just as much as He uses adults. He placed tremendous value on them and we should do nothing less. We are called to faith like a child, which means we have a great deal to learn from them. Every adult needs to be reminded what childlike faith looks like and that faith needs to be cultivated."
Additional details to help your family learn more
Children who show signs of fever, vomiting, or other contagious illnesses should be symptom and fever free for 24 hours before coming.
All volunteers are carefully trained and background checked before serving. We also follow a strict check-in process to ensure the safety of your child.
A room for nursing mothers is available. It is located near the bathrooms behind the Multi-Purpose Room.
Notify us of all allergies, medical needs, or behavioral needs so we can best assist your family. We provide a snack in Crawlers–Pre-K classrooms.
We strive to provide a safe environment for your child including a check-in system that only allows an adult with a matching tag to retrieve the child. All workers (at least 2 in each room) have completed a background check.
We will do everything we can to acclimate your child to the classroom environment so that he knows he is loved, taken care of, and that you will be back. If it becomes evident that we need to contact you, we will do so by text first.
Yes, we have a lesson (at least Biblical conversation pertaining to the curriculum) for preschoolers during church. We are not simply child care.
No, preschoolers do not promote when they have a birthday. They move with their class in the fall just like school age children do.
Our volunteers are the heartbeat of this ministry. They help transform the lives of our Rich Fork children by teaching truth, modeling Christ-like living, extending grace and most importantly, showing our boys and girls the love of Christ!
This is an opportunity you don't want to miss!
"To see the joy in their eyes when they learn a new Bible verse or a new song about God and His love brings so much joy to my heart.
I love each of them and look forward to spending that time with them each week. Hopefully, they see Jesus living in me. Thanks to all the parents that share their kids with us."
