social, physical and emotional ingredients necessary to form a firm foundation for life.

SUNDAY

ON SUNDAY MORNINGS, CHILDREN, SIX-WEEKS THROUGH AGE FIVE ARE ASSIGNED TO PRESCHOOL ROOMS BASED ON THEIR DATE OF BIRTH.
THEY ARE LOVED AND CARED FOR IN THEIR CLASSROOM, ALLOWING THEIR PARENTS TO ATTEND SMALL GROUPS AND CORPORATE WORSHIP WITHOUT WORRY OR CONCERN.

WEDNESDAY

AWANA is held on Wednesdays, August - May, from 6:15PM-8:00PM

First Baptist Church of Arnold's AWANA Clubs is for children two-and-a-half years old (born 02/01/2017) through fifth grade. The goal of AWANA Clubs is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.

The name AWANA is an acrostic which stands for "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. AWANA provides a special place for your children to make new friends, play exciting games, compete in rewarding and challenging contests, receive awards as reinforcements for their good performance, and have opportunities to learn and memorize God's Word, the Bible.

Puggles® recognizes the learning ability of 2- and 3-year olds by introducing biblical truth at church and equipping parents to teach them at home.
Cubbies® celebrates the spiritual potential of preschoolers (3- to 5-year olds) by helping them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word.

SICK CHILDREN

For the protection of all children, parents are asked not to drop off a sick child. Upon the recommendation of the Committee on control of Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child should not be taken from home when any of the following exist:
• A fever, vomiting or diarrhea currently or within the previous 24 hours
• Any symptom of a childhood disease such as scarlet fever, measles, mumps, chickenpox or whooping cough
• Common Cold-from onset through one week
• Sore throat, Croup or persistent cough or green runny nose
• Any unexplained rash
• Head lice
• Pink eye or other eye infection
• Hand, foot and mouth disease

If a child develops a fever or other symptoms of illness while at church, he/she will be isolated and the parents contacted to take the child home.

PARENT RESOURCES

Along with the rest of Next Generation Ministry, we teach The Gospel Project, which immerses preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project for Kids, preschoolers will understand that the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
