preschool

Newborn – Pre K
Sundays at 9:30 am / 11:00 am
Wednesdays at 6:30 pm

In Preschool, children learn foundational truths about who God is and what He gives. We believe that our little ones are capable of learning so much about God through Foundations, Big Truths, Bible Verses, and Bible Stories. We strive to prepare preschoolers to join their families in the Gathering and to help parents take on the responsibility of discipling their children in their homes. Preschool is offered at the same time as Adult Go Groups – 9:30am and 11:00am. Children are welcome to attend both hours or spend one hour in the Gathering with their parents!


ELEMENTARY

Kindergarten – 3rd Grade
Sundays at 9:30 am or 11:00 am
Wednesdays at 6:30 pm

Our Elementary Ministry serves families of children Kindergarten through 5th Grade. We come alongside families – loving and connecting kids, encouraging parents, and equipping them as they disciple their family to find their joy in Jesus. 

At Tri-Cities, we fully uphold and highly value elementary children worshiping with their families in the Sunday gathering as we seek to grow together in multigenerational fellowship!


preteen

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

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 6:30 – 7:45 pm

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.


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! 

Vacation Bible School – Summer

Vacation Bible School is for 2 year olds – 5th grade and happens each June! Learn more about VBS.
