Spiritual Development of Preschoolers
In this session, we will discuss how preschoolers develop a love for Jesus, church, home, family, and the world; and that God has a special plan for their lives. Discussions will center around age appropriateness and milestones in a child’s life that can be celebrated by the family.
Breakout Session #1, Friday, 3:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m., Room 215
Using Learning Centers to Teach the Bible to Preschoolers
Look at these children – all they are doing is playing. That is correct – a child’s work is play. Preschoolers bring all of themselves to Sunday School, and learning centers will minister to the whole child. You will have some hands-on experiences and new ideas on how to use learning centers to share Jesus with boys and girls.
Breakout Session #2, Friday, 7:15 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Room 215
More Than Babysitting
In preschool ministry, we are growing and teaching children, not babysitting while parents go to church. Join this session for ideas to use whenever you have preschoolers at church. They should always be learning about Jesus.
Breakout Session #3, Saturday, 10:45 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Room 215
Connecting with Families
In this conference, you will learn how important it is to connect with families. When preschool families visit your church, you are the first contact they have with the church. Join us as we share ideas for connections and how to follow-up with the connection opportunities.
Breakout Session #4, Saturday, 3:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m., Room 215
