Preschool & Children's Ministry
Let your children’s hearts be fueled physically and spiritually. At Kids Cove, we serve parents as much as their children, dedicating our Sunday mornings to teaching the truths of scripture, all within a safe, fun environment. Kids Cove will soon be your child’s favorite destination. We desire for your children to know Christ and encounter Him as they become spiritual champions during this pivotal time in their lives.
We want you to know that at First Dallas we value your kids and the opportunity we have to be a part of their lives. We guarantee we will take them on an adventure each week that is not only fun but one where they will encounter Christ along the way. Kids Cove is here to create the best day of your child’s week, and our desire is to build a spiritual champion in each and every child who walks through our door.
Sunday mornings are designed to be a fun time of worship, Bible lessons, and friends in Kids Cove.
We have two Sunday School hours: 9:15 or 10:50am. Preschool children from 6-weeks-old to PreK stay in Kid’s Cove from 9:15am until after the 10:50am worship service. If you would like to keep your children with you for the service, please enjoy our Family Room on Worship Center Level 2 where you can watch the service live in a comfortable atmosphere. Children in kindergarten through sixth grade are encouraged to attend one Sunday School hour and one hour of worship with their parents.
During Sunday School, our large group worship gets your children energized and excited about the God we serve, while our small group classes provide an intimate time to nourish them in the love of Christ.
Don’t forget to let your children experience our three playgrounds, uniquely catered to their age group. They will never want to leave, and you may not either!
