Discovery Trail Preschool

Discovery Trail Preschool

"Jesus loves them, this we know for the Bible tells us so." Matthew 19:13-14

The Discovery Trail introduces preschoolers to Christ and the foundations of church by providing key opportunities for learning Bible truths through play, music, storytelling, art and puppet theater.  Preschoolers learn lifelong values and beliefs by participating in many opportunities at First Baptist Jackson with you, as a family. 

We want to partner with you to help you make those first impression of faith.  Together, we can help lay a strong foundation of who God is so that when the time is right, your child will be ready to make the decision to follow Jesus Christ!

 >> Sunday School with "Treasure Time"

The 9:00 hour begins with “Treasure Time”, a fun and entertaining large group worship experience with puppets, praise songs and Bible stories.  Next, preschoolers move to small group rooms, led by caring adults who continue the day's teaching theme.  

The second hour Extended Care is provided volunteer church members, who serve once per quarter as a VIP ("Very Important Partner").

Preschoolers may attend one or both of the 9:00 am Sunday School and 10:30 am hours of Extended Session, while parents are involved in an adult Sunday School class and attending the worship service.

>> Baby Dedication - a Commitment Celebration for Parents

The Baby Dedication ceremony is a celebration time where parents commit to raise their children to one day know Jesus Christ and help them to grow in their faith.  Family and friends are encouraged to support and pray for their special little one.

Before the ceremony, families participate in a special Baby Dedication Workshop to help encourage them in their parenting journey.  

This event is crafted to be a beautiful beginning of a life-long partnership between the church and a family to raise God loving families that will change our world for Christ.
