Welcome to The Growing Place!!!

The Growing Place (Birth-Pre-K) is a vital ministry at UBC where we focus on biblical foundations for children to grasp the immeasurable love of God in all things, and his desire for worshipers.  Our leadership team is made up of trained teachers and volunteers who have passed security background checks, and are equipped to provide age-appropriate biblical teaching. We use a variety of teaching methods including hands-on activities, interactive songs, movement, and creative storytelling.

Sunday Mornings

  • 9:00 – 10:15 am –  Children Desiring God in Chism Nursery and 1st Floor Randall Hall
  • 10:30 – 11:45 am –  2nd Hour Children Desiring God Rotations in Chism Nursery and 1st Floor Randall Hall

The Growing Place uses The Children Desiring God curriculum, and is introduced in our Toddlers Class. The SEEDLINGS Nursery Ministry is the beginning, a place where leaders are nurturing and caring for precious young children as well as praying over them.  They sing songs and learn simple yet profound truth statements about God and hear foundational bible stories.

Our curriculum for SPROUTS (3’S), SHOOTS (4’S), and SPRIGS (PRE-K) is God-centered stories of the Old and New Testament showing little children the greatness of God! It includes teaching through key themes to not only acquaint children with the Bible stories but to teach them sound doctrine. The curriculum includes a scripture memory program of 80+ verses on picture cards. These are a group of broad foundation verses rather than specific verses that tie to each Bible story.

Sunday Nights

  • 5:30pm – 6:30pm – Sunday Night Service and Age-Specific Ministry (every other Sunday night)

Our preschoolers will join us in the chapel for our Sunday Night Service, during the singing, and then be dismissed to go to age-specific ministry activities.

Our Sunday Night Service is an opportunity join together as a Body to sing, pray, and hear God’s Word and ways in which He is using us in ministry and mission.  You can find those dates HERE.
