We believe the first five years of a person's life are extremely important in building character, love, and a positive response to Christ and His church. We seek to provide Christian education and care utilizing trained leaders, a clean and safe surrounding, and a well balanced curriculum designed to meet the needs of preschoolers. Your child is very important to us, and we want his or her time with us to be happy, well directed, and profitable.
Preschoolers from infants to Kindergarten are given the greatest of care at Bayshore. Our Preschool Ministry desires to lay the foundation on which children may come to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and grow in relationship with Him. To that end, we strive to:
- Provide a safe, clean, and nurturing environment for preschoolers and parents.
- Develop relationships with preschoolers and parents.
- Teach that the Bible is a special book that tells us about God, Jesus and His love for us.
- Minister to the families of preschoolers.
- Meet the physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual needs of preschoolers.
Weekly Events in the Preschool Ministry Include:
Sunday School provides preschoolers and children with Bible-based teaching through age-appropriate learning activities. Classes are age-graded to meet the individual needs of preschoolers. Each class is designed to teach the basic concepts of the Bible in a way that preschoolers can understand. Infant through Kindergarten classes meet each Sunday at 9:00 am.
Extended Session is an extension of the Sunday School program which takes place during the 10:30 am worship service for preschoolers under four years of age. It includes age-appropriate Bible teaching and provides parents an uninterrupted time of worship while their preschoolers are having fun in the preschool area.
