Preschool Activity Centers

The preschool ministry is using an activity center format for small groups. During each service hour preschoolers experience a 20 minute large group teaching and worship time, as well as a 40 minute small group activity center time.

Each leader in the room is assigned to an activity center, during the 40 minute small group time the children rotate through each of the centers, spending about 10 minutes at each. From week to week the center activities change to correspond with that week's lesson. However, the Blue Group is used to teach the verse and dive deeper into the Bible Lesson each week! Children have the opportunity to experience many different types of learning activities in the centers, from games to crafts to hands-on exploration, children never know what awaits them in the next learning center!

During large group time the large group leader creatively teaches the Bible Story, Verse and leads the children in Worship!
