The Preschool Ministries (Babies- 5 Year Pre-Kindergarten) exist to partner with parents in nurturing the spiritual growth and development of our youngest children. With this purpose in mind, we offer spiritually nourishing and developmentally appropriate educational activities for all ages of preschooler. It is our goal to provide a clean, safe, and loving environment in which our children can learn and thrive.

As your child is growing and developing at First West, we want to minister to the whole child. In the planning of our programs, we consider all areas of development: mental, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. All our programs provide an opportunity for your child to grow in the nurture and love of the Lord.

Child Dedication

A Child Dedication Service gives parents an opportunity to thank God for the precious gift of their child as well as to publicly declare their intention to raise their child in a Christian home. This also allows the church the opportunity to show our commitment to the family by praying for them, encouraging the parents to live for Christ, and for us to be an example to the parents and children.

If you would like to take part in our next Child Dedication on Sunday, May 9 in both services, please register below.
