Lambs Christian Preschool
The Lambs Christian Preschool began in 1988 as a ministry of the Grace Bible Fellowship Church. Our purpose is to provide an early childhood education with a Christ- centered atmosphere at a time when growth is rapid and the child is impressionable. We take our directive from the Word of God that instructs us to “feed My lambs,” and to “train up a child in the way he should go.” Our fervent desire and prayer are “to hear that our children are walking in the truth.” (III John 4)
Offering classes for three- and four-year olds, the Preschool seeks to promote the knowledge of God as Creator and Jesus Christ as Savior; to nurture the development of Christian values; to foster healthy mental, physical, emotional and social growth in a Christian atmosphere; and to provide an alternative to secular education for the Grace Church family and neighborhood.
Our curriculum includes an introduction to letters, phonics, numbers, science, social studies, and computers. We encourage you to contribute ideas, share concerns, and discuss with us the joys of guiding your young child.
A close home-school relationship is always beneficial to the children. Parents are always welcome to join us during our class time. We encourage participation by inviting parents to join us on field trips and during special classroom activities.
The church conducts a before-school release time ministry in cooperation with the Northeast Middle School of the Reading School District. Once a week during the school year, students are brought to the church from 7:30 – 8:30am for breakfast and a Bible study.
NEMS Bible Club
Northeast Middle School Bible Club (NEMS Bible Club) exists to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to students participating in the club. The program takes place in the middle school’s building every Tuesday afternoon.
Vacation Bible School
VBS is held each summer, typically during the first or second week of July. VBS runs from 6:30pm – 8:00pm each night and is open to the public.
