What We're About

The Preschool Ministry serves children birth through kindergarten; empowering and equipping them to know and love Jesus, while also encouraging families to grow their faith at home. Our vision for children is that they would come to love Jesus Christ; love His Word; and share the love of Christ with others. We are passionate about kids, Jesus and Cypress!


We Value...

  1. Parents as the primary disciple makers of their children. Our role is secondary and viewed as a partnership.
  2. Developmentally appropriate Bible teaching.
  3. Building relationship and community.
  4. Equipping children to serve in the church and in the world.

    Sundays

    Life Bible Study + Heartland

    Sunday provides one of the best times for children to learn and interact with other children their same age. For kids at Houston's First, Sundays are split into two distinct parts. While you are transitioning between worship service and bible study, your kids are doing the same.

    9:30a — LBS Classes & Heartland
    11a — LBS Classes & Heartland

    Heartland is an age-appropriate worship experience for PreK and kindergarten in which they worship through song, message and strategic interactive stations; all contributing to reinforce the lesson they have been taught in LBS.

    Family Worship

    Family Worship are special Sundays when parents are able to both model worship and participate in worship with their children in our main worship service. On these Sundays there is no Heartland or Kids’ Worship. Family Worship occurs any month that has a 5th Sunday, Easter Sunday, Sunday after Thanksgiving, and the Sunday closest to Christmas.

    Wednesdays

    While you attend a MidLink gathering, your kids will experience age-appropriate Bible study and small groups.

    6p — Mission Friends / Worship Our Way

    For detail on current classes, check the Milestones tab in our Growing Our Souls section below.

    Giving Our Lives

    A soul growing closer to God cannot be contained. Eventually, it will need to find a release. Missions and volunteering are just two such outlets.
