preteen

4th – 5th Grade
Sundays at 9:30am / 11:00am
Wednesdays at 6:30pm

Our Preteen Ministry exists to create a culture that engages kids in 4th and 5th Grades with age-appropriate discipleship opportunities and environments. Our hand-picked leaders guide discussions of the weekly FDP and challenge kids to read and study the God’s Word on their own through personal devotions called Workouts. We aim to partner with parents in discipling their kids during the transitional preteen years.


aim

Wednesdays at 6:30pm – 7:45pm

AIM is a fun, interactive environment for kids as they study God’s Word and engage with the Big Truth, Bible Verse, and Bible Story from the Family Discipleship Plan (FDP) each week.  AIM is for Preschool (Newborn – Pre K) and Elementary (Kindergarten – 5th Grade). 


The discipleship of our children is worthy of consistent, intentional pursuit, and the Bible calls parents to diligently teach and purposefully talk to their children about God’s big truths (Deut. 6:4-9). The Family Discipleship Plan offers one truth this week for each age group. TCBC equips families to talk about these truths weekly and be purposed and proactive in family discipleship. 

If you don’t currently have a discipleship plan to help bring strategy and consistency to your discipling conversations, let us help you get started with the FDP. Scan the QR code in the upper atrium, at kids check-in, or at any of our preschool classrooms next time you’re on campus to get the link to create your free account.


Tri-Cities Baptist Church offers a Parents Day Out program for children ages 1 year old through Pre-Kindergarten. To advance and further embrace the biblical vision for parents, grandparents, and guardians as the primary disciplers of their children, we have named our program Little Arrows Parents Day Out. Psalm 127:4 says, “Like ARROWS in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.”

Kids In The Gathering

We gather on Sundays to worship together, including children!  Our desire is for your family to gather for worship during one service time and connect in community during the other service time. If your family is here on Sunday for only one service time, we encourage you to attend a worship gathering with your children!
