|From the Pastor|
Dear Teachers and Parents of Clyde Preschool,
September begins an exciting time here at First Baptist as we welcome back into our midst the children and staff of our preschool. I am excited that this will be my fifth year of meeting new children and their families. It is my continued joy to get to know these wonderful children through conversations in the hallways and chapel time together. As in past years, Donna Rathbone and I will conduct a chapel service for the children each week.
Jesus, in His ministry, recognized the potential, worth, and pure love that was present in children. Following in Jesus’ footsteps, we at FBC understand the infinite value and potential of children. We view our preschool as part of a continuum of opportunities for children to grow spiritually and mentally as they develop physically. In addition to preschool, First Baptist offers an RA and GA program and music program for children on Wednesday nights. There are also age graded Sunday Schools and a Children’s worship time each Sunday morning. We want this preschool and our church to anchor the training that is already occurring in each of your homes by providing these precious children with a quality, Christ-centered learning environment.
We want you to feel that First Baptist of Clyde is your church home. We would welcome your presence and participation in our worship and ministry. We have a place just for you. Know also that our members pray for you and your children. I can’t wait to see you. It is my personal prayer that this will be a wonderful year of preschool as together we care for our children.
Grace and Peace,
Dr. T. David Phillips, Pastor
First Baptist Church of Clyde
