Preschool & Infants Ministry


Sunday’s | 10:00AM & 7:00PM | Preschool Building

Tuesday's | 7:30PM | Preschool Building

At The Tabernacle, we aim to instill a desire for life long worship with our youngest worshipers. Our goal is to provide a safe and caring place where kids can begin learning about God and interact with God in a kid-friendly, safe environment.

SUNDAY MORNINGS: Our babies to four-year-old preschoolers are cared for by a loving staff in our licensed day care facility. We follow the best practices for child care safety and early development. The preschool building is staffed for the Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. Our preschool worship is filled with Bible stories, life application stories, games, and large group worship with singing, dancing, and scripture memorization. We have small group breakouts to continue the lesson theme and provide continued hands-on interaction.

The 2nd and 4th Tuesday | 9:30 – 11:30am

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers… We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.” We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world. MOPS at The Tabernacle meets the 2nd and 4th of each month, with exceptions near holidays.  We provide childcare adjacent to our MOPS meeting place for children thru kindergarten age, and use the Moppets program.

We meet from 9:30 – 11:30am in the Family Life Center on our campus.  A typical meeting begins with brunch, followed by a teaching and small group discussion time. We typically end with a craft or community project. If you have further questions or would like to join us, please contact Cara Sobkowiak at (716) 675-2888.
