The Preschool Ministry of Hillcrest Baptist Church exists to provide a secure, nurturing environment for infants
thru Kindergarteners where biblical truths are taught as a foundation for salvation and Christian living. The
Preschool Department opens 15 minutes before the start of worship, Sunday School, Discipleship Training and
“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52
Our goals for the growth of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are based on the fact that they grow just as Jesus grew
– mentally (in wisdom), physically (in stature), socially/emotionally (in favor with man), and spiritually (in favor with God).
Therefore we seek to:
Lay a strong spiritual foundation in the life of each child we teach, with the hope that when older, each child will accept
Christ as their Savior.
Help children begin to understand:
God is creator, giver of all good things
Jesus is God’s Son and our best friend
The Bible is a true and special book that tells about God and Jesus
Make church a happy, clean, and safe place to learn Bible truths.
Provide activity-based teaching, which includes Bible-learning activities that allow them to make progress in problem solving,
sharing, and expressing themselves in appropriate ways, thinking of others with kindness, and learning to love others as
Partner with the home in nurturing the spiritual growth of the young child.
Encourage parents/guardians to actively participate in worship, Bible study, fellowship, and ministry opportunities.
