Preschool ministry

Our number one desire in Orchard Preschool is to equip parents to impress a genuine and lasting faith in God on the hearts of their children. Before your child is born, we urge you to “begin with the end in mind”. We want to inspire parents from the very beginning to invest in those things that will matter the most to their child’s future. We want them to know that the very most important decision their child will ever make is to put their faith and trust in their heavenly Father.

Our primary platform for investing in families and children is through our Sunday morning environments at 9:00 and 10:45. It is our aim to provide a safe place where parents feel comfortable leaving their kids while they attend worship - a place where committed adults invest in their children through meaningful interaction and engaging curriculum.

We think The First Look curriculum we use on Sundays gives preschool children a lasting first impression of their loving heavenly Father. The curriculum keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. First Look also helps children understand worship and introduces them to small group time. From fun activities to crafts to large group Bible story and worship time to small group Bible time - it’s all part of the plan to help a child believe 3 key things by the time he or she is 5 years old:

1. God made me.
2. God loves me.
3. Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

And, because we believe so strongly in equipping parents, every week preschoolers and parents are sent home with a Parent Cue card to further the discussion from Sunday morning into their home. We call them Parent Cues because they’re designed to help (or “cue”) parents to reinforce biblical truths at home. Be sure you make it home with this great resource every week!
