Sunday Ministries for Preschoolers & Parents
- 8:00am & 11:00am Sunday Morning Discipleship Communities
- 9:30 & 11:00 Sunday Morning Large Group
The preschool ministry lays the foundation for the beginning of a child’s spiritual journey. We take this responsibility seriously. From birth- completed kindergarten our stories and activities reinforce three basic biblical truths:
- God made me.
- God loves me.
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
Infants and toddlers learn to separate from parents and learn others can meet their needs, thus learning to trust. They learn that God made them special as teachers love them and care for them, meeting both their physical and emotional needs.
In twos, threes and fours the children begin to get a picture of God’s amazing love for us. He loved us enough to give us a beautiful world to live in, he loves enough to care for us, to heal the sick, to feed the hungry, to take time for children. Bible stories are told each week to help a child understand God’s love.
In kindergarten a child begins to understand that God loved them enough that He wants to be their friend forever. The foundation continues to be laid so that a child might ask Jesus into their heart when they are ready.
Our Sunday morning curriculum is one of a kind, written especially for Carmel preschoolers.
At 9:30am, all children age 2 – kindergarten go to a large group setting to hear the Bible story from an animated storyteller. The children also enjoy high energy music with motions in their large group setting. At 9:30am the children also enjoy making an art project and a yummy snack.
At 8:00am and 11:00am, the Bible story is reinforced in an interactive way. Art activities will always be related to the Bible story. Small group activities are also planned to reinforce the story and biblical truths being taught.
Children are encouraged to stay for 2 hours while parents attend both Worship and Discipleship Communities (DC). Looking for a DC that fits your current life season? Try WEE Connect!
