Square One Spring 2023 Session
April 5 - May 17
The preschool ministry at PaulAnn is committed to planting seeds in the lives of young children through Bible teaching, songs, activities and interaction with loving adults. We believe that a child is never too young to begin learning the basic truths of Jesus Christ.
Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a gift from the Lord.” This is so true - they are such a wonderful gift! It is both a privilege and responsibility to be a trusted with your child.
Our goal is for the children at PaulAnn to feel unconditional love and acceptance. Children should think of our church as a happy, secure place. Every single child who walks into our building should hear that God loves them.

We begin with teaching the truths of the Bible to our infants, movers and rompers. We do this by loving them, singing biblical songs with them, and teaching them about God, Jesus and the Bible. We realize that children will not understand every word spoken to them in “Baby Church”, but we believe that a constant repetition and visual stimulation are keys to making an impact in the spirit of a child. Our focus for preschoolers is to use repetition for memorization and retention. Our children are taught the same Bible story each time they meet throughout the course of one week (Sunday and Wednesday). Various methods for telling the story are used through crafts and other activities to help the children remember the Bible story and its principle. By creatively teaching the Bible, children will memorize verses and learn stories in a fun, exciting environment.
At PaulAnn, we use Orange's First Look preschool curriculum, where we invite preschoolers to learn three foundational truths: God Made them.God Loves them.Jesus Wants To Be Their Friend Forever.First Look combines child development and theology to create a comprehensive preschool ministry curriculum and strategy for every phase of a kid’s life to influence their faith from birth to graduation.
We have a strong desire to not only train up our children, but to train up our parents as well. Twice a year we hold baby dedication classes to help train parents to become the Christ-like models they want to be for their children. Following the classes, we dedicate the babies during worship services in front of our church body to hold parents accountable to what they learned in the classes.See Upcoming Events
We typically do Baby Dedication twice a year - once in the Spring and once in the Fall. If you are looking to dedicate your child and don't see baby dedication here, please check back later!
