Preschool Ministry

Preschool logo vFINAL no BG
We love kids and want to make sure they look forward to coming here every Sunday and whenever we have something else going on. It is amazing that even at their young age, our preschoolers can understand basic ideas of who God is and what Jesus has done for them.

Sunday School

Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. we offer the Gospel Project® for our youngest babies to our kindergarteners. Our teachers can help babies and toddlers learn about Jesus as they play with them, snuggle together, and even as they put them to sleep. The Gospel Project® for Preschoolers brings Bible stories to life through video, music, activities, and more. Kids who begin The Gospel Project® as preschoolers and stick with the study until the end of their preteen years will be immersed in the entire gospel story—from Genesis to Revelation—three times during the course of their childhood.

Extended Worship Care

Extended Worship Care is provided for children Pre-K and younger in the child’s Sunday School classroom, while you attend worship service at 10:45 a.m. 

Wee Ones

Wee Ones is a part of the total ministry of First Baptist Church Pflugerville. We seek to minister to parent and child, church members, and the community. We provide a Christian staff to teach age-appropriate curriculum and foundational concepts of God, Jesus, Bible, church, self, family, others and the natural world. Through a variety of activities and experiences our program goals are to enable children to:

  • Grow in trust, independence and initiative
  • Feel good about themselves
  • Experience God’s love through loving relationships with other children and adults
  • Enjoy happy times at church
  • Engage in developmentally appropriate activities for gross motor and fine motor skills
  • Express creativity through music, art, and other play activities
  • Learn to make choices for individual and small group activities
  • Be prepared for kindergarten 

 

Wee Ones is a 2-day per week preschool for toddlers through 4 years old that meets on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Wee Ones usually runs September through May, usually beginning the first Tuesday after Labor Day and follows the Pflugerville School calendar for holidays, etc. Call for availability in your child’s age group. Classes have limited enrollment so contact us early to enroll your child.

Where: First Baptist Church Pflugerville (Check-in and Pick-up at the Worship Center)

As they seek out exotic animals, they will also take snapshots of real-life encounters with Jesus in Scripture. Kids will go from bewildered to believing as they get in the Wild at this summer’s VBS.

Canned Good Drive: Each year we have a friendly competition between the boys and the girls to see who donates the most to our FBCP Food Pantry. The food donations help hungry people in the Pflugerville community..

How can I Register my child?

Option 1: Click Here For: VBS 2019 Online Registration  

  • Choose the PARTICIPANT REGISTRATION Option on the left side of that page and complete the form.
  • If your child is a previous registrant (Summer 2018) the grade level will automatically be updated for 2019.
  • If you register just before you arrive that morning, your child’s information will not be available to their teacher and you will be asked to complete a paper registration form.


Option 2:
Paper registration – Please do not use this method unless you do not have access to a computer with internet.

  1. Visit the Children’s Ministry table in the Mall on Sunday mornings to get a form to complete, or Return a completed form.
  2. Visit the Church Office – Mon-Thurs, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Pre-registration will save you time. On your child’s first day to attend VBS, you can bypass the registration table and go directly to the Check-In station for the grade level your child has just completed.

Although pre-registering is preferred, children may register the first day they attend VBS. Forms will be available to fill out the Registration Table the first day your child attends. Bring emergency information with you. Our registration form asks for contact phone numbers and health insurance information. Arrive a few minutes early so your child doesn’t miss anything!
