It is a joy and a privilege to share the love of Christ with children at FBC Decatur. At the same time we recognize that most of a child's spiritual development happens not at church, but at home. Therefore we see it as our mission to partner with families in pointing their children toward Christ.
We believe that there is no better way to accomplish the goals of the church than to join with families in the all-important task of leading the next generation into a life-giving, life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
1) Our Preschool Ministry is Christ-centered.
Jesus Christ—knowing him and becoming more like him—is at the center of all our programs, curricula and decision-making.
2) Our Preschool Ministry is Child-focused.
Before children can learn about Jesus they (and their parents or guardians) must feel safe and welcome.
3) Our Preschool Ministry is Creative.
We believe that learning about Jesus should be fun and relevant. We use drama, music, videos, games and interactive exercises to involve the children in learning Bible truths.
Basic Procedures (KidCheck)
KidCheck, state of the art computerized check-in software, will assist you in easily checking your child in and out.
When it comes to your children, safety is our first priority. KidCheck insures that children are only released to a parent-approved adult.
Alternatively, if you'd rather create a KidCheck account in advance before coming to church, click here.
During KidCheck registration, you will be asked the following:
All Parents will give a cell number during registration and are asked to place their phone on vibrate when children are registered/checked in.
In the event of an emergency, you will be contacted on your cell.
Parents are always welcome to volunteer.
You may register now for God's Big Backyard. The weeklong adventure begins on June 9.
