Preschool Ignition Group

Also known as IG's

SUNDAY MORNINGS @ 9:45 and 11:15
Preschool Ministry serves children Birth through Kindergarten.  We are honored that you trust us with your children and will do everything in our power to provide a safe and secure environment where your children will learn the love of God through exploration, play and music.   As children grow we know that they become curious about the world around them.  Their curiosity allows us to introduce them to the Creator of all things.  We are excited to work with parents in introducing our all-powerful, loving God in ways that are fun and unforgettable.  

Currently , we are using The Gospel Project Curriculum but Lifeway for the preschoolers.  Lifeway allows us to partner with parents in helping the very young take their first steps toward learning about God.
