Nursery & PreK

We invite you to let us partner with you to show unconditional love to these young ones, as they continue to develop physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We have dedicated a nursery wing and preschool wing to provide love and an introduction to Jesus and the Bible. We meet Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights to help you grow as a family in Christ. Our vision is to partner with families to encourage kids to love, learn, and live for the glory of God. 


Nursery (Ages 0-2): We love babies and toddlers and want to help develop the understanding of God's unconditional love for them. Each nursery room is staffed by at least two adults who are ready to care for your child in a safe and welcoming environment.


Preschool (Ages 3-5): Have you ever noticed how preschoolers are always playing? Playing is how they learn! Our preschool uses Bible Studies for Life to help preschoolers learn about God. We utilize concise Bible story lessons, pictures, music, crafts, and snacks to guide preschoolers toward Bible truths. We lay a strong spiritual foundation to build upon as your kids grow. 


Mission Friends: On Wednesday nights during the school year (August-May), we take preschoolers on a journey around the world to learn about people who tell other people the good news about Jesus. We learn about missionaries and the people groups they live with. We see, hear, smell, touch, and taste other cultures as we explore God's mission in the world.


Life Way Christian Preschool: Our church offers an accredited preschool during the school year to prepare preschoolers for elementary school. LWCS recognizes that there is no greater privilege and responsibility than to be entrusted with the care and teaching of children. LWCS desires every student to develop an understanding of their Creator, and to view themselves as His special work, created for a specific purpose. LWCS aims for each child who finishes the preschool program to possess the beginnings of a firm Biblical foundation on which to build the remainder of their primary and secondary education. You can find more information about LWCS at lwcsar.com.

Kindergarten-6th grade

We love kids and consider it a joy to help take care of God’s kids. It is a privilege to provide a safe, clean, and positive environment for kids of all ages that points them to Jesus. 


SUNDAYS


Life Groups: On Sundays from 8:45-9:45AM, we have age-graded small groups for kids that provide a safe, secure, and Scripture-filled environment, to learn how God's plan of redemption unfolds in the Bible. Through The Gospel Project, kids learn to live out a clear understanding of the gospel, pointing every story and every kid to Jesus. 


Worship for Life (Kindergarten-2nd Grade): After Life Groups each Sunday, we transition all students to the worship service to join in worship with their parents. At the end of the worship and before the teaching time, students grades kindergarten-2nd are invited to participate in a separate children’s worship class that meets in the fellowship hall (across from the worship center). Students in children’s worship will hear age-appropriate teaching from the Worship for Life curriculum and have a chance to ask and answer questions. 


WEDNESDAYS


God's Amazing Kids (GAK): This is during the school year. We want all K-6th Graders to join us for God's Amazing Kids (GAK)! Everything kicks off at 6:00 p.m. Think mini-version of our VBS and you got it!  We jam-pack tons of fun with Jesus!  We will finish up each week at 7:30 p.m. for check-out.  See your kid(s) at The Track (Games), Yak & Pack (Bible/Memory), and Backpack (Mission). Preteens (5th-6th graders) focus their hearts and minds on learning apologetics.  Sign up HERE!


If you have any spiritual counseling needs, we'd like to help.  You can contact our church office by phone (479-795-2591) or email children@fbccenterton.org for guidance on starting a relationship with Jesus, baptism, and personal growth.
