Starting The Race Before Us

Bay Leaf Preschool Ministry

The Bay Leaf Preschool ministry partners with parents to disciple and teach our children about Jesus. On Sundays we grow through Bible-based activities, devotions, and singing.

Our teaching is focused on helping your children understand these fundamental truths:

  • God created the world
  • God loves me
  • Jesus came to save sinners
  • The Word of God is true

"Everyone that serves on the preschool hall is so welcoming. We love knowing that our daughter will be safe and well cared for."

- Elizabeth Hamilton


Your child’s safety is important to us. We have multiple people and resources in place to ensure your child's safety, including an electronic check-in system with name tags and pick-up tags, as well as a greeting and security team.

All volunteers, teachers, and staff are background checked and required to complete a MinistrySafe training program prior to serving our amazing preschoolers.

If your child is in diapers or is potty training, please bring a diaper bag and a change of clothes. If your child needs a bottle or sippy cup, please bring that as well.

Our Preschool Hall is peanut-free. Unless parents specify otherwise, snacks are provided for toddlers and preschoolers. We offer cheerios, goldfish, and water. We also offer glazed donut holes on the 1st Sunday of each month in place of our traditional snacks. If your child has any allergy needs, please let us know.

Bay Leaf Moms Ministry

Building faith that can be seen across multiple generations.

"I'm reminded of your authentic faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice. I'm sure that this faith is also inside you." 2 Timothy 1:5

The Bay Leaf Moms Ministry is focused on creating a space for community where moms of all ages can come together in fellowship to encourage, support and equip each other to make disciples of our children.

  • Biblical Literacy and Spiritual Growth
    • We connect moms to weekly Bible studies and discipleship groups in order to equip women to grow in their relationship with the Lord.
  • Biblical Community
    • We provide opportunities to foster gospel relationships among the mothers in our church, including Titus 2 discipling relationships
  • New Mother Care
    • Our New Mother Care Ministry seeks to provide emotional support and spiritual encouragement to women in their transition to motherhood.

Mother's Nursing Room

If you have an infant and need to nurse, bottle feed, or pump, you can use the mother's room. It's located on the Preschool Hall and equipped with an on-suite bathroom and adjoining kitchen. Service viewing is available on Sundays during the 11:00 AM worship service. You can access the mother's room by coming in the Preschool Hall entrance or by asking about it at the Welcome Center by the sliding glass doors.

"The Mom’s Ministry at Bay Leaf has given me a chance to learn and grow with other moms all going through the same season of life. There have also been more experienced moms that have shed light and given me guidance on how the gospel and motherhood are intertwined. So thankful for this community!"

- Chessica Gombatz

Get Involved

We are always looking for extra hands. Serve with us as we partner with parents to share the goal of discipleship between church and home.

Help create fun, engaging fellowship opportunities for moms to find a community in which they can learn and grow.
