Being a DC preschooler is so much fun! Each week, Ollie the Owl brings us our Bible story and worship through an exciting video. The children also play learning games, create crafts, and enjoy a snack.

We are committed to prayerfully partnering with parents to lay a strong foundation in the life of each child, repeatedly teaching them three basic heart truths: God created me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever!

Preschool Connect Groups (Babies through Pre-K 4’s) meet at 9:30 and 11:00 each Sunday at both church campuses.

Each child’s safety is a top priority in our children’s ministry and every volunteer is required to have a background check before working with children and youth.

We use a computer-based child check-in system for ALL children (babies through 5th grade) using child labels and pick-up labels. For child pick-up, your child will be released only to an adult with the pick-up label matching the child’s label.

Just as Jesus’ ministry here on earth included reaching out to those with disabilities, we, too, want to be a part of reaching everyone with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our DC Kids Champions Club ministry is dedicated to providing hope to students with special needs and their families. Our goal is to minister to each student by helping him grow in an environment that continues the vision of DCKids by “Connecting Kids to God and Others”.

Our special needs wing is nestled right next to our preschool area, and the themed “garden” is the perfect place for your child to grow and learn about Jesus! The space is centered around learning and providing for each child’s specific needs, using sensory and tactile equipment.


Our buddy program is for children of all ages. With the assistance of our trained buddies, most of our Champions Club children are able to attend our regular DCKids groups.
