MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
Our group meets two times a month from 9:30am - 11:30am
MOPS provides moms with a place to go where they can build relationships with other moms. This includes mothers of children from birth through Kindergarten. We have a speaker at each meeting who strives to help moms with their most common challenges, along with a time of craft and discussion.
First visit as a guest is free. If you decide to join there is a yearly MOPS National Fee of $25, paid once a year at the first meeting.
We want to celebrate with you, because a new addition to your family is a new addition to our church family. During your pregnancy we would like to pray for you, invite you to a dinner, to introduce you to the preschool department, and be there to greet your new baby. More
The commitment you make to raising your child in a home centered around Christ’s love and teachings is one you can begin from the time your child enters the world. If you would like to make this commitment public, we offer to you a time of Family Dedication.
Where our mission is to partner with parents in shaping the hearts of preschoolers for eternity.
What Can You Expect?
A safe, healthy and clean environment where you child will learn about Jesus, have lots of fun playing with friends and developing a foundation for spiritual growth for the rest of their lives.
Teachers & Curriculum
Your child is special to us here at FBC Lubbock. We believe that preschoolers are able to learn about Jesus, so we have set up their Sunday school classes to teach them in the ways they learn best. We teach through games, group time, drama, music, prayer time and other proven methods. Preschoolers hear about important topics from God’s love to the significance of family. Using age-appropriate curriculum, preschoolers are taught by teachers who love serving Jesus by teaching children.
Clean Surfaces & Diaper Changes
All toys are washed, disinfected, and checked to make sure they are not broken. Every crib sheet is changed before and after each use. Special care is taken with diaper changing and disposal. When your baby needs to be changed, the teacher uses antibacterial soap before and after each diaper change along with rubber gloves. The station is cleaned with Lysol after each change of each baby. A sticker is placed on your baby’s diaper so that you can see that he was changed.
Every teacher has had a background check, a name badge, and continues training throughout the year so that they can be the best teacher possible.
Label All Items
It is important that all of your child’s belongings be labeled with his or her name. Put a name or initials on your diaper bag, pacifiers, bottles, diapers, wipe boxes, blankets, and anything else your child may need on Sunday morning. If you forget to do this at home please stop by the table in the baby suite where we have Sharpies and other labeling items for your convenience.
Our infants are cuddled and rocked and prayed for with love. We do not leave children to “cry it out” – if your child does cry, we will do everything we can to calm and reassure them. The more consistent you are in bringing them to church, the quicker your child will feel comfortable in their class. We will also take your mobile phone number in case of an emergency. If you will keep your phone on silent, we will call you if your child needs you.
Dropping Off At The Door
We ask that all parents and siblings remain in the hallway when dropping off or picking up their child. This is not only to keep the learning environment free from distractions, but to also cut down on the dirt and germs brought in.
Security Check In Kiosks
When you check in your child at one of the four kiosks in the hall, you are given a security sticker. A child is not to be released to anyone without a security sticker. If you have misplaced yours, we will ask to see a Drivers License to prove your identity. We ask that parents remain in the hallway when dropping off or picking up their child to keep the learning environment free from distractions.
For the health of everyone, we can only accept your child when he or she is well. We are not able to accept any child with a cold, fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea or any other signs of illness. If your child has been ill, please wait until they are well before bringing them back to Sunday school.
