We believe that foundational truths can be absorbed in even the first days of life. For this reason, we work to direct children toward Jesus as soon as they enter our nursery for the first time. This starts with nursery volunteers that pray over our babies. Before they begin to walk, we teach them that God loves them, God made them, and he made the great big world around them. Our nursery workers see their jobs as leaders, and not childcare providers.
- Lexington Baptist Church’s Cradle Care Ministry exists to walk beside families who are expecting or adopting in our church and community. Once registered in Cradle Care, each family is paired with a Cradle Care Team Member to pray for them, care for them and to communicate with throughout the pregnancy or adoption process, birth, and baby dedication.
- The Cradle Care Ministry sponsors two dinners each year for new and expectant parents. The dinner is designed for parents to meet and get to know each other. A special guest speaker will share thoughts on Christian parenting, and we will introduce you to Lex Kids, the children’s ministry of Lexington Baptist Church. Register for this free event by emailing Kristen King.
- We have a saying down our preschool halls… “We don’t do childcare.” Everything we do has a distinct purpose in preparing every child to know Jesus personally.
- Our preschool leaders create a safe, meaningful, and fun experience for your preschooler. This often involves jumping, singing, creating, dancing, and playing. It is our greatest desire that every preschooler will know that:
- God loves them
- God made them
- Jesus wants to be their friend forever
- Before our kids head on to middle school, we want them to understand that:
- I can trust God no matter what
- I need to make the wise choice
- I should treat others that way I want to be treated
