Nursery / Preschool

Our Nursery/Preschool department is a place where committed volunteers** share God’s love with each child. While in our care children enjoy learning Bible truths through play time, structured age-appropriate activities and music. We strive to have the safest, cleanest and most loving care available.

Nursery/Preschool classes are offered:

  • Sunday-9:00 am Sunday School
  • Sunday 10:30 am-Extended Session/Worship (Children remain in the same room if dropped off at 9:00)
  • Wednesday 6:00 pm (For parents attending service or serving–Birth-2 year olds)

A nursing room is available for our moms who would like to view the service while feeding their babies in a comfortable, private setting. It is located next to the Bed Baby nurseries.

**All of our classes are staffed by volunteers who feel led to share the love of Jesus with our youngest CBC family members. If you would like to be considered for our Kids Ministry Team, please contact Laurie Milholland. Laurie@cbcnlr.org or 501-771-1125

Children’s Church

Children’s Church is offered to 4 year old & Kindergarten children during our Sunday morning service at 10:30. While older children and adults are participating in family worship in the sanctuary or attending Sunday School classes, our Children’s Church leaders are engaging children in their own time of worship!

Sound Bible teaching is offered in a variety of themes ranging from “Spy Chase,” “Upside Down Town,” to “Undersea Adventure.” “Elevate Jr.” curriculum themes change every 8 weeks and are sure to take your children on a fun journey of Biblical learning. Through a multi-media presentation, children participate in age-appropriate activities, games and music that teach and reinforce the weekly lesson. Snacks are offered, so please advise if your child has any allergies or special dietary needs.

Baby Dedication

Every Mother’s Day we recognize families with babies born since the previous Mother’s Day, as well as families with young children who have not previously participated, but would like to. CBC is blessed with an abundance of young families, it is not unusual to have 15 babies (or more) at this service!

Mother’s Day Out

Mother’s Day Out

Our Mother’s Day Out program serves children from the age of six weeks through pre-kindergarten. We realize that our MDO families have entrusted us with the care of these children, who have been created in the very image of God. Each child is uniquely different in stature, yet all have the same needs in the areas of social, physical, emotional and spiritual growth. We strive to meet all of these needs by creating an atmosphere that reflects security, love and acceptance expressed in a Christian manner.

  • ENROLLMENT FOR FALL 2022 has begun
  • We offer MDO on Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00-2:00.
  • MDO operates on a school calendar cycle; there is no summer program.
  • Curriculum (age permitting) includes finger plays, songs, nursery rhymes, prayer at mealtime, arts/crafts, thematic units, letters and sounds, shapes, counting, numbers, daily Bible lessons, and social skills.
