Church Nursery

Open during worship services each Sunday

Preschoolers are indeed special people at FWMBC. Our preschool ministers to children from birth to age 5 in a variety of ways. It is our hope that our Nursery and other preschool ministries will allow your child to associate God, Jesus, and the Bible with happy feelings, to develop a sense of self-worth, and to begin to show love, respect, and acceptance for others.
