Preschool and Children’s Ministry:
The JBC children’s ministry seeks to introduce children to the saving love of Christ through every class, event, and activity. We encourage children to begin their study of the Bible as the source of all truth and the means by which they achieve spiritual maturity. We pray that our ministry provides a solid foundation for children as they embark on their
life-long journey of faith.
A verse that inspires our ministry and its volunteers to work for the Lord and serve in His church is Luke 2:52, “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and men.” It is the desire of all of the men and women who serve in our Preschool and Children’s Ministry to help children grow intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially. We believe that the church is here to serve and support families as they take on the incredible task of raising boys and girls. Thank you for entrusting your children to our care!
Preschool Church (PreK and Kindergarten) provides preschoolers with age-appropriate worship opportunities designed to engage and introduce them to biblical truths. Through crafts, music, storytelling, and play we are able to provide a quality experience for our preschool-aged children.
Kids’ Church (1st- 4th grade) provides children with age-appropriate worship with the goal of preparing them to attend the regular worship service. Kids’ Church includes worship, Bible teaching, and games and activities.
Sunday School (Birth-5th Grade) is age-graded, classroom-style learning opportunities where children are exposed to the Bible and taught how to apply it to their lives. Even our youngest children are provided a learning opportunity unique to their needs and abilities.
Our Wednesday Night program, Music and Missions, is available for children to go deeper with their faith by learning how to use their knowledge and abilities for the Lord. Music classes allow children to learn the value of worshipping the Lord. In addition to our Wednesday night class, many of our choirs perform throughout the year at various church events. Missions teaches children about missionaries serving around the world. Boys and girls are able to experience hands-on cultural lesson with many of our older groups participating in various service projects.
Throughout the year we seek to offer family-friendly events for children of all ages to participate in. A few of our yearly events include Fall Fest, Eggstravaganza, and Vacation Bible School. Fall Fest is a free community-wide event for families that includes food, carnival games, prizes, candy, and live music. Fall Fest takes place on October 31st from 5:30 - 7:30 PM. Eggstravaganza is a church-grounds egg hunt for all children. Games and activities as well as a child-friendly Easter story presentation are included. Eggstravaganza takes place the Saturday before Easter at 10 AM. Vacation Bible School is a special week- long event for our Kindergarten through 5th graders. From 9 AM-Noon we engage children with music, sports, Bible stories, crafts and more! In addition, on Thursday night of VBS we have a special Family Night where hundreds of children and their families come to hear and see all the children have accomplished and learned.
Throughout the year we offer special, one-time events for children and their families. Please continue to check our website for more information or email email@example.com to ask questions or get details!

Mother's Day Out:
At Jefferson Baptist's Mother's Day Out, we want your child to experience God's love for him through loving relationships and happy times at school. Because each child is growing physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually, we provide a variety of positive learning activities. The activities look a lot like play - that's the way young children learn - but they also teach skills and introduce children to the joy of learning. We meet Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. click for more info
Your child is welcome and loved at Jefferson Baptist Church! Our goal is to provide an educational program that is nurturing, loving, and consistent in teaching God's will.
