Wilshire’s Preschool Ministry
Nurturing young hearts in God’s love.
Preschool Sunday School teachers begin by teaching the simple Bible truths that God loves us. The ministry applies positive Bible teachings that relate to your child’s daily experiences, which in turn lay foundations for continuing spiritual growth. Sunday School starts at 9:45 a.m., and our preschool classes meet in a secure hallway.
Worship Care is provided for preschoolers during worship. This is staffed by both paid personnel and church volunteers who love children. As children enter kindergarten, they begin attending worship with their parents. Each fall, a special class in worship education is offered for incoming kindergartners.
Music, Missions & More
Older preschoolers, ages 3 and 4, engage in preschool choir and other activities on Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. during the school year. It’s part of Wednesday Night Live, which begins with dinner for the whole family at 5 p.m. in Community Hall.
Summer Events for Preschoolers
Vacation Bible School
VBS creates opportunities for preschoolers to learn more about the Bible and their place in God’s world. A wide range of hands-on activities opens the door to learning while having a good time. Usually held one week in June from 9 a.m. to noon. Free.
Preschool friends camp
Preschool Friends Camp is similar to Vacation Bible School but is just for preschoolers and is held later in the summer. Recent themes of this free camp have included “I Can Be a Good Friend” and “I Love My Family.”
