Our Vision for Preschool Ministry

We love and value families at Citizens Church. Our hearts are to partner with parents of preschoolers to raise up the next generation, building a strong gospel-centered foundation. We believe that parents and guardians, those entrusted with raising and caring for children, are called to be the primary disciple-makers of their kids (Deuteronomy 6:6-7). We do this through age-specific discipleship at church and by providing tools for families to fulfill their call to make disciples in their homes.

We teach these five Foundational Truths 

God Is Good         

Psalm 106:1 “Praise the LORD! Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”

God Made Everything

Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

God is in charge of everything

Proverbs 16:9 “The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.”

God wants to talk with us

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 “Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Jesus came to save sinners

Ephesians 1:7 “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace.”

How We Teach

How We Teach

Our main ministry for babies on the weekend is prayer, so we pray over every child by name. As your child grows, we begin teaching them age-specific curriculum like God's Big Story, a monthly memory verse and we always make sure to read from the Bible — God's true word. Each week we provide a Family Discipleship Resource for you to use at home. These are also available on our website.

Safety Protocol

We require all of our volunteers working with children to pass a regular background check and to complete a Ministrysafe training to ensure we do everything we can to keep our kiddos protected and safe. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about what we are doing to protect your children.

Volunteers

We are always in need of volunteers in our Preschool ministry

Are you looking for a place to serve at Citizens Church? We encourage you to consider volunteering to help lead and minister to our preschoolers. There is something for everyone and serving positions vary from greeting families to leading a classroom.

Have children in other age groups?

Have children in other age groups? We have age-specific gospel-centered programming for your whole family. These environments are safe and secure, as we have strict processes and procedures, including background checks for all volunteers.
