Growing BIG in Our Belief in God.

Our Passion

Our ultimate goal is to guide preschoolers toward a relationship with Christ! We want to develop disciples at a young age and equip kids to grow in their faith. We believe church should be a place your child loves to come!

Your Child's Safety

We care about your child's safety. All volunteers go through a screening process and background check. We strive to protect your child to the best of our ability while in our care. Children are checked in using an electronic check-in system. Each time a child checks in, a randomly generated four character code is printed on the child's name tag and must be matched with the corresponding ticket in order for the child to be picked up from the classroom. Allergies and parent location/contact information are also listed on the child’s name tag. Save time on Sunday by creating your free KidCheck account.

Get Connected with Preschool


    On Sunday mornings we offer age-specific small groups at 9:15 am. In age appropriate ways, our preschoolers (Birth-Kindergarten) discover every week that Jesus isn’t part of the biblical story…He’s the point of the Story!


    First Care is available for birth through three year olds during the 10:30 am worship hour.



Our worship is BIG in the BIG Room (room 116)! This 10:30 worship hour is designed especially for our 4 and 5 year olds. The children are escorted from their Sunday School rooms to the BIG Room where they have a Bible story, do activities, sing, and learn about God in ways 4 and 5 year olds love best - ACTIVELY! 



    We believe that it is important for kids to worship Jesus on their level! Kid’s Worship is offered on Sunday mornings during the 10:30 am worship hour for 1st - 4th Graders. Join us in The Underground for this high energy, weekly event for games, music, and activities that reinforce the biblical truths kids are learning in their small groups.


    Wednesday nights beginning at 6:00 programs are available for 2 year olds and up. Childcare is available for children under two.


    January-May: FirstKids Discipleship (2 year olds-Kindergarten)


    We begin to hide God’s Word in our heart by learning and memorizing Scripture. We also apply these truths through fun activities, crafts, and games!


    2 and 3 year olds: Interactive music classes are a great way to little ones to begin worshipping God! A parent or caregiver must attend class with each child.


    4 and 5 year olds: We learn to praise God with our voices and begin a lifetime of worshipping Him! Children will participate in two performances a year: once in the fall as well as in December as part of the church-wide Christmas program.


    Church Street Academy (CSA) is a ministry of First Baptist Church Decatur. Our goal is for children to learn and grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with God and man.


    Our program runs August-May and follows Decatur City School’s calendar. We offer half and extended day programs for infants through 4 year olds:


    Extended day runs from 7:00 am until 4:30 pm.
    Half Day runs from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm.


    Parents may choose the number of days their child attends, and pricing depends on the age of the child and the number of days attended.


    Students are accepted throughout the year pending classroom availability. A $35 registration fee is required for children to be accepted.

We'd love to hear from you and make sure all of your questions are answered. Let us give you a tour of the Preschool Ministry as well. We're here for you!
