Lil Ridgers Preschool Ministry

Infants - 5 year olds/pre-k

The Preschool Ministry is filled with loving volunteers who provide a safe place for young ones to learn Bible stories, sing worship songs, and enjoy hands-on learning experiences.


Learning-based childcare is offered on Sunday mornings for children from infants through Pre-K.  Friendly volunteers spend quality time with preschoolers so that parents can attend a worship service and an adult Sunday School class.

  • WEST CAMPUS :: 9:00, & 10:30am :: Sunday School :: Children's Room


The Preschool Ministry offers a semester-based program for preschoolers so that parents can attend an adult Ridge Class, go to choir practice, or volunteer in our Children's or Student Ministry. This time of learning and care is action-oriented and designed just for eager children.

Walnut Ridge Baptist Church strives to provide a safe and secure environment for the minors who participate in our programs and activities, whether at authorized off-campus events or at church property. By following these practices, our goal is to protect the children and students of Walnut Ridge Baptist Church from incidents of misconduct or inappropriate behavior, while providing excellence in ministry to families. We intend for our church to be the safest place in town. All volunteers who come in contact with minors are screened and trained: (1) Submit to background check every two years; (2) Attend child safety training; (3) Take child safety test upon completion of training. These training materials are available upon request.
