Birth to Pre-K
The Preschool Ministry of First Mt. Juliet is an environment created especially for your infant (six weeks) through preschool-age child. We can’t wait to meet you and your child! We know things are busy at this stage of life and your child is learning and growing in amazing ways, so we are ready!
We believe in an active, hands-on approach to learning with preschoolers. So, you can expect a lot of jumping, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience. Be on the lookout for fun crafts and big games.
We look forward to helping your preschooler learn more about God. It is our hope that your child will learn:
God loves me.
God will always love me.
No matter what happens, God loves people.
What We Do:
- We partner with you for the spiritual growth of your child.
- We plan a full hour for your child that includes centers, Bible stories, songs, crafts, games, and best of all, small group time for prayer and discussion.
- Babies - will be loved on in our nursery as they listen to soothing lullabies.
- Toddler – Pre-K children will meet in a circle in their classrooms and learn about God in meaningful and developmentally age-appropriate ways through hands-on activities and songs. They also will have playtime.
- 3s – Pre-K classrooms will participate in “Large Group” and “Small Group” for their Bible story and worship time. They also will have playtime.
At First Mt. Juliet Kids, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick:
- Good and bad things happen, but God still loves us.
- I can learn to respond in a positive way to what happens to me and others.
- I can live with joy regardless of my circumstances.
While parents are in worship, children will experience Kids Worship with music, games, and a Bible lesson. Then in Small Group time they will dive more into the Bible lesson from Kids Worship and learn how to apply the Bible to their life.
The focus of First Mt. Juliet Kids is our small group environment. We want kids to see how God's Word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to Him, and to build friendships that will last. That's why it's important to make sure your child connects with the same friends and same leaders.
First Mt. Juliet Kids Ministry Times:
- Sunday mornings during the 8:15 a.m., 9:35 a.m., and 10:45 a.m. services
- Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m.
KidCheck Secure Check-In System
You can feel safe leaving your children in our care! All of our Kids Leaders are background checked & trained to work with your child's age group! We also proudly use a secure check-in system to help keep your kids safe. It's super convenient, fast, and easy. What is KidCheck?
The safety of children on our campus is our first priority. When you first arrive, a Kids Team Member will greet you and guide you through the initial guest check-in process. Returning families can create a secure KidCheck account and check in at one of our kiosks or use the express check-in app. Controlled-access doors and our very own security team members are present to ensure the safety of each child.
