Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our Preschool Ministry at Riverview Baptist Church. We realize that reaching the Next Generation for Christ begins at the earliest stages of life. Because of this, each week we sing songs, do small crafts, and teach the Bible in interactive ways to children while focusing on 5 key truths—“biblical building blocks”—to help preschoolers understand who God is and how they can relate to Him.

Over the course of a child’s time in our preschool ministry we strive to instill 5 “biblical building blocks” in our preschoolers:

  • God made everything.
  • God loves everyone.
  • Jesus died to save sinners.
  • The Bible is how God talks to me.
  • God tells us to love and obey our parents.

OUR MINISTRY GOALS ARE:

  1. To show and teach Christ’s love to each child in our care.
  2. To provide a clean, safe, and fun environment for children to learn about Christ.
  3. To enable parents to participate in the life of our church knowing that their children are well cared for.
  4. To empower and equip parents in discipling the Next Generation by:
    • Communicating what is learned in the Life Group time (usually through handouts),
    • Providing biblical parenting resources on age-appropriate issues,
    • Partnering with parents as a church family that will strive to help preschoolers know Jesus personally, practically, and purposefully.

Need to KNOW:

Our preschool area is located downstairs in KidZone. Please follow these simple guidelines when planning to bring your child to our preschool ministry.

  1. First time visitors: Please plan to stop by our guest welcome center at KidZone. There you will be assisted with our Checkpoint Check-In process as well as asked to fill out a newcomer registration card.
  2. Checkpoint Check-In: All children are required to be checked-in by a parent/guardian. Check-in begins 30 minutes before services start. Again, if you’re visiting for the first time, you will need to fill out a registration card to receive a key tag and security stickers. The stickers are for child pick-up:
    • Child Pick-up – You must present your portion of the sticker before we release your child.
  3. Label belongings: A printed label with your child’s name will be provided in addition to the security stickers. You can use this name-tag to place on bags, bottles, cups, blankets, etc.
  4. Health Guidelines: For everyone’s wellbeing, all children must be fever-free and/or symptom-free of any contagious disease for 24 hours. Additionally, please let us know if your child has any allergies or medical conditions.

HOW YOU CAN SERVE

Serving in the preschool department during worship services is an important ministry. See our associate pastor, Michael Beene, if you would like to volunteer. All pre-school workers are subjected to a background check prior to service in the pre-school area.
