Wednesday Groups

On Wednesday Evenings, during the school year, there are small groups for all kids! They meet from 6-7 pm.

Mission Friends is for girls and boys in PreK 4 and Kindergarten. They meet in the Education Building. In Mission Friends, preschoolers develop a missions heart as they move from a focus on themselves to a focus on others. Preschoolers grow toward God as they become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love.

Children In Action is for girls and boys in 1st – 3rd grade. They meet in the Education Building. Children in Action (CA) is a coed group designed for boys and girls to come to faith in Christ as Savior while making missions an important part of their daily lives. They learn what it means to live a missional lifestyle while they participate in Bible studies, missions projects and engaging activities. They also have a lot of fun as they “travel” to various places around the world when they learn about and pray for the work of missionaries.

Girls In Action is a missions discipleship group for girls in grades 3–6. They meet in the Eduction Building. The GA Motto is “Go Forward!” and Girls in Action do just that—they grow closer to God as they discover their part in His plan and practice what they learn through hands-on missions opportunities. GA leads girls to a lifelong commitment to Christ, His mission, and His church.

Royal Ambassadors is a missions discipleship group for boys in grades 3–6. They meet in the RA room next to The Refuge. RA provides an opportunity for boys to grow spiritually, physically, mentally, and relationally with others through missions involvement and character development.

Connect Groups

 

Connect Groups meet on Sunday mornings at 9:00. With the exception of 2 and 3 year olds, whom meet in the nursery area, all kids meet in the Education Building. Small groups vary by age and gender. Someone will be there to welcome you and lead the kids into the correct room.

The current curriculum is The Gospel Project. The Gospel Project is all about the gospel because the gospel is all about Jesus.

It’s more than a story—it’s good news!

The Gospel Project is a weekly Bible study that helps kids dive deep into the big story of the Bible—God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son, Jesus Christ

But he said to them, ‘It is necessary for me to proclaim the good news about the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because I was sent for this purpose. Luke 4:43

Children’s Church

Children’s Church is for all kids in grades PreK 4 – 4th Grade. They start off in “big church” on Sunday Mornings. The kids are dismissed at the beginning of the service and they will head to The Refuge (youth room).

They will learn biblical truths and real life lessons that they can apply to their lives. Our FBC kids Leadership Team use scripture, short videos, worship music and other fun activities to engage with them and teach them about Jesus.

They can be picked up in The Refuge after the Worship Service is over.

Kidz Konnection

Kidz Konnection, also referred to as KK, meets on Sunday evenings from 5 – 6:30 in the Education Building. Kids are separated into two classes by grade, PreK 4 – Kindergarten are in one group and 1st – 6th Graders are in another. They eat a light supper at the end of class.

Our aim in KK is to teach kids how to connect to God through personal worship. To learn how God has created them individually and provided everything they need for life in His Holy Word encourages them to know God and trust Him. We have a variety of teaching methods – music, drama, Bible stories, special activities, fellowship. All things point to God’s love for us!

Nursery

Our nursery can be found on the south side of the campus. It is open during our morning and evening worship services and on Wednesday evenings. Children, from birth – age 3 are welcome to attend. Someone will greet you as you walk in and guide you to sign in your child. Please inform them of any allergies or feeding times for your baby.

MDO Information

Our Program:

The goal of Mother’s Day Out is to provide a Christian based, safe and happy learning environment for children from the age of 1 through the age of 4. While we do introduce academic skills, our focus is more on intrapersonal skills.  We give moms a much-needed break and children the joy of early friendships.

Date and Time:

We are open on Tuesday and Thursday from 8am until 2 pm from September through May.  We also offer a summer program during the months of June, July and August on Tuesday and Thursday from 9am until 2 pm.  We follow the Jeff Davis public school closure schedule for holidays and weather closures.  We also have a couple of closures throughout the year, each will be announced with at least one-month notice.

What you need to bring

  1. A bag which contains a full change of clothing and diapers if needed. This bag will go home with your child each day.  The bag should be large enough to easily hold a standard size folder that will contain your child’s artwork and teacher communication forms.
  2. A lunch in a lunch box. We encourage you to send things that your child likes and can feed him/herself. Lunch should include a drink in a no spill cup as well as any utensils needed. Please send lunch with any needed cool packs or with hot food in a thermos.  We have limited refrigerator space and we do not heat food due to time limitations at mealtimes.
  3. A nap mat. The mat should roll or fold neatly, and a small travel size pillow and a blanket may be included.  This will be kept at school and sent home periodically to be washed.

Helpful Hints:

  1. Closed toe shoes, like sneakers, are best.  Our playground has mulch and it is uncomfortable when it gets into sandals.
  2. Dress your child for comfort in play clothes, we play hard and we make messes!
  3. LABEL EVERYTHING!!!
  4. We discourage toys being brought from home.  Sharing is a hard skill for young children to learn, therefore, we like for all the toys at MDO to belong to everyone.

Thank you for your interest in MDO.  We are thankful for the honor of being allowed to share in your children’s lives.  It is a mission that we do not take lightly!  If you have any questions that have not been answered or any special concerns, you may feel free to call me.
