Bible Friendship Classes

Preschool Bible Friendship classes allow preschoolers to experience age-appropriate Bible learning activities using hands on approach in a loving and safe environment. Activities are planned with a specific goal in mind: teaching spiritual truths. All of our children, from babies through 4 year old’s, hear God’s word and His love for them. We also offer Praise Island, large-group praise and worship time for our 4 year olds at 9:15. In addition, fours may also attend a Bible Fellowship class at 8:00 and 11:00 am. Preschoolers can stay up to three sessions allowing parents the opportunity to attend adult Bible Fellowship groups, worship services and serve as a volunteer.

In addition to Sunday mornings, Worshipcare is available for children birth through pre-kindergarten during all evening services. Loving teachers and volunteers are waiting to share God’s Word and His love with preschoolers.

Protecting Your Child

How does Idlewild provide safety and security for my child when I’m attending the worship service or a Bible Fellowship class?

Through use of a computerized check-in system, each child is given a name tag containing his room number and any special allergy alert. The parents receives two copies of a matching security tag containing the security number only. This security tag is used to pick up the child. No child is released without this security tag. Parents and guardians are asked to wear this tag whenever you are in our children’s building.

How are teachers and volunteers screened?

We require all volunteers to submit to a thorough background investigation screening. All volunteers are approved by our Leadership prior to being trained to serve with children.

How will you reach me if my child needs me?

If you are in the Worship Center, your child’s security code will be displayed in the lower corner of the IMAG screen. For parents attending an adult Bible Fellowship class, your personal cell phone may be called.
