Welcome to Preschool Ministries at First Baptist Church,Richmond!
Check-In Information for Guests & Parents: If you are a first time guest at First Baptist, we’d like for you to have plenty of time to acclimate your children to classrooms prior to your own Bible Study or Worship experience. You are always welcome to attend worship as a family. However, if you would like for your children to attend God’s Garden, our preschool ministry experience, you may begin checking them in at 9:20 a.m. for the 9:30 a.m. Sunday School/Worship hour. If your family will attend the 11:00 a.m. Sunday School/Worship hour, preschoolers can be checked in anytime after 10:30 a.m. Being here just before check-in will allow your family plenty of time to register in our system at the God’s Garden Check-In Desk, get your child settled in their classrooms, and get to a Bible Study Class or Worship service.
Location: Preschool Wing Dates: Sunday mornings
God’s Garden is the name we have given our Sunday ministries for preschoolers where we PLANT seeds of God’s love. PLANT is an acronym for Partnering with parents, Learning God’s Word, Age-appropriate experiences, Nurturing Godly relationships and Telling the world about Jesus. Sunday morning is a fun-filled hour and a half of activities that bring Bible stories and lessons to life. It includes Bible skill building, Scripture memory, games, music and more! Our preschool ministry uses The Gospel Project curriculum that is designed for kids to get a chronological study through the entire Bible in three years, connecting every lesson to Christ, and helping children to understand the connection between the Old and New testaments. We’ll learn how God’s plan for salvation is evident throughout the entire Bible! That’s exciting stuff!!

Worship Arts & Missions!
Location: Preschool Wing
Kingdom Sprouts is the name we have given to our Wednesday evening ministries. We’ll continue to grow and learn through a follow-up Bible study from Sunday’s story/lesson with a few more activities that help the lesson “stick”. Preschoolers will also move to music, learning how to keep rhythm and tempo, playing simple instruments, and learning to use music and their voices to Worship! Preschoolers will also have a time for Mission Friends where they, too, will learn about missionaries, do mission projects and learn how they can be a missionary where they live!
