First Friends


First Friends Preschool & Kindergarten Ministries serve infants through kindergarteners. We love children, and we want them to love Jesus!

Our mission is to love preschoolers and their families into a closer relationship with Jesus. We strive to accomplish this by…

  • Partnering with parents and equipping them to be the primary disciplers of their children.
  • Providing a safe and secure environment where every child learns from the Bible through Bible conversations, singing, centers, and group time.

We recognize that the preschool years are filled with astounding growth and rapid development. We also recognize that this development was created by God. We know that children between birth and six years learn over half of all they will learn in life during these formative years. This is a critical time of foundation building for all that will follow.
