WELCOME TO PROMISE PLACE!

Promise Place is the name of our Preschool Ministry for ages birth through Kindergarten.

We believe the preschool ages are vital in laying a firm foundation upon which a life of faith can be built. During these years, a child is constantly exploring his environment through experiences. And, we want your child to learn that church is a fun, happy place.

As your child grows & develops, we desire to partner with you to nurture your child’s physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual growth — thus meeting the total needs of your child!

Sunday Mornings

BABIES THROUGH AGE 4: SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES

9:30 & 10:45 AM

Continual hours of teaching are offered in these classes, so parents may attend both Bible Study & Worship Service without needing to check their preschoolers in & out a second time. Each hour will have the same Bible thoughts & story, but the second hour is taught by a second set of teachers with a new look at the same story.

KINDERGARTEN: WORSHIP KID-STYLE

9:30 AM

We’re excited to have a Kindergarten-level worship hour available for our Kinders! This hour is slightly more regimented with singing time, a Bible story time, & learning activities. Not only will our Kindergarteners begin to learn what worship is, but they will also become more prepared to transition into the Children’s Department next year when they enter 1st Grade.

KINDERGARTEN: SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS

10:45 AM

The Kindergarten teachers are excited to help their students learn the life application of the Bible stories they hear. Kindergarteners will participate in age-appropriate activities to reinforce the life thoughts of the day.

Sunday School

Sunday School is an integral part of the life of First Baptist Church of Lakewood. It is our main form of small group Bible study for all ages. It can be difficult to create & cultivate friendships in a large setting like a worship service, but Sunday School classes allow opportunities to build relationships & walk "shoulder to shoulder" through the ups & downs in life.
