ENGAGE the interests of children, it provokes knowing God personally.
AFFIRM a middle schooler's identity, it gives a safe place to process doubts.

Embrace Preschoolers

Moms and dads, you are your child's greatest teacher and influencer. We believe God has called you to be the primary disciple-maker for your preschooler. The preschool years are a time of significant learning and development. We think they may be the most IMPORTANT years, and we want to help you teach them some foundational truths that will impact your child's life forever.


PRESCHOOL PHASES


During these three preschool phases, your child is going to think like an artist and be motivated by safety. Your job is to EMBRACE their physical needs so they feel safe, and to incite wonder so they will know God's love and meet God's family.
To learn more about all of the Phases, view our Family Ministry Map.
