Preschool MinistryPartnering with parents to help grow children in the Lord
We welcome you to the First Baptist Church of Rockwall’s Nursery & Preschool Ministry. It is our passion to join alongside the family to help lead preschoolers into a relationship with Jesus. The preschool ministry encompasses children from birth through kindergarten. In our church, we deeply desire to provide children a safe and nurturing environment to grow in Christ.

PRE-K – KINDER
Sunday School 9:30am & 11:00am
Children’s Building – Jungle Junction – Lower Floor
Sunday School is a time where your child can learn God’s word through story telling, crafts and interaction with other kids. Though this can never replace the Bible study you do at home with your children, it is a very nice supplement to help children grow in faith.
Sunday School classes take place at 9:30am and 11:00am for children 2 years-kindergarten.
WORSHIP SERVICE EXPECTATIONS:
If your child is 4 or under they should attend Sunday School for one hour, and extended session (childcare) for the second hour. Once your child reaches kindergarten, it is important that you begin introducing them to the worship service.
Our Children’s facilities are state of the art. The children’s building is situated behind the main building on our campus. It is three stories, with each floor dedicated to a different age group.
Lower Floor (Jungle Junction): Ages 3 years – Kindergarten.
Ground Floor (Creation Station): Newborn – 2 years (by September 1)
Top Floor (The Launching Pad): 1st-4th Grade
Our 5th – 6th Graders are located in the Preteen Wing of our main building.
Child wellness policy
In order to insure the safety and health of other preschoolers and workers, please refrain from bringing your child if they have had any of the following symptoms within the past 48 hours without medication.
*If your child develops a fever or other illness symptoms, you will be asked to take your child home.
Your child’s safety is our first priority. We want you to be able to worship, fellowship and serve with your fellow believers, knowing that your child is learning, growing and safe! In order to maintain a safe environment anyone that picks up your child must be on the approved check-out list. The person’s name will be matched to a digital finger scan that we will capture when you drop off your child. This not only keeps your child safe, but also allows us to automate the check-in/check-out process with kiosks (located on all floors of the Children’s building). When you drop off your child, we will walk you through this simple process.
MOPS exists to encourage, equip and develop mothers of small children (birth – kindergarten) to realize her potential as a woman, mother and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.
