Welcome to Tuesday School. We strive for an atmosphere of creativity and enjoy showing children how wonderfully God has created them. We also want to give them a positive introduction as they begin their educational journey. Preschoolers often find change frightening and at Tuesday School they can begin to work through change and their fears of the unknown. They will be given a safe and loving environment to see school, teachers, new experiences, other children and different surroundings as fun and exciting adventures!
We pray for Tuesday School to be a safe and loving environment for your children to gain a hunger for God, confidence, an excitement for learning and positive social skills to help them through the rest of their amazing lives!
What is Tuesday School
Our goal is that Tuesday School will be an experience where your child will learn about God's Word, Bible people, places and principles, alphabet recognition, color recognition, number recognition and counting, shapes, sharing, cooperation, coordination, listening and social skills. We'd also like to help your child make a pleasant and joyful transition from pre-schoolhood to elementary school. We hope to help children work as well as play together. We'd like Tuesday School to help build a foundation that will help them become the best students they can be in the coming years. Most of all we want your children to feel loved, safe and happy!

We have lunch from 11:30 - 12:00. We take this time to talk with the children about the importance of nutrition and manners while eating. Tuesday School provides water to drink with both snack and lunch. Please DO NOT send drinks with lunches.
The person bringing a child to school is required to accompany the child into the church and sign their name on the sign-in/sign-out inside the basement doors. Any special pick-up notes or messages can be given to the teacher at this time. At the time of pick-up, the adult picking up the child needs to sign-out at time of pick-up. Teachers will release children only to persons on the registration/release form provided by the parent. If you or any of the persons on your release form are not able to pick-up your child please call us so that we know who can pick up your child. We will ask the person picking up the child to show us ID. The children's safety is our priority.
Why we chose the Ark as our logo.......
God chose to save and protect a remnant from the evils of the world in Noah's time. The ark was the vessel in which he kept them safe and delivered them from the destruction and death of the flood. Children generally love animals and can understand the story of Noah's Ark as God's protection, care and love in providing Noah, his family and the animals a safe deliverance.
But his logo is not only for the children. We too can see God's love and divine protection in it. This is a reminder to us all to be safely housed in the "ARK" of Jesus Christ. Just as the ark provided protection and deliverance from the flood in Noah's time, Jesus the perfect 'ark', provides protection and deliverance from the 'floods' of this life. Noah and his family were safe in the ark but still had to go through the storm. They had to choose to board the ark and to stay safely inside. We too have to choose to board the ark of God's kingdom, accept and obey his WORD and come into God's grace through the blood of his Son, Jesus Christ. This is beautifully put in 1 Peter 3:18-22. "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also - not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand--with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him"
