LifeGroupsLifeGroups are small groups that meet on Sunday mornings at 9:45 to study the Bible, build relationships, and pray for one another. These groups are organized by age and by interest, and we have classes from babies all the way to senior adults. We have a small group for you!

Women’s Ministry offers Bible studies and a variety of activities, including an annual retreat, for Christian Women to grow in Christ. From this growth, Women’s Ministry strives to provide opportunities for women to use their gifts and talents in service to God, their church, and other women.
We also have a ministry to moms of preschoolers called Atomic Moms. Atomic Moms’ purpose is to be a place that all moms are welcome, safe community is present, and relationships are nurtured; all for the ultimate goal of Christ’s love and truth being shared.
The vision of Atomic Moms is to stay Christ-centered and Spirit led in our efforts. Our prayer for the group is that we would have an abundance of laborers to reach those living in darkness. To be on mission for Christ in our neighborhood. That Atomic Moms would create a pipeline of leaders. We would be sensitive to the needs of those around us, pray for their needs and reach out to them. The opportunity created by this moms group is one we see as ordained by the Lord.

Jesus Loves Me Preschool
A nurturing weekday environment where your child can grow socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.

Development of a healthy self-concept, having the opportunity to try new things in a loving and accepting environment.
Opportunities for development of gross motor skills such as eye-hand coordination and balance, as well as fine motor skills such as cutting and lacing (these latter skills to be developed according to the individual maturity of the child.)
Focusing on language development skills such as vocabulary enrichment, listening skills, the concept of left and right, etc, and developing cognitive skills such as one-to-one counting, matching objects, and comparing objects through hands-on activities.

Jesus Loves Me Preschool uses the READY! For Kindergarten age level targets developed by the Washington State Department of Early Learning and Development for skills identified by research as having the highest correlation to success in school—specifically learning to read and do math early and well. We use these targets as we plan our lessons and progress through the year.
All classes meet 9:00-11:45am
2 year old program – 3 days a week
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
The Two year old class is for the child that will be two by August 31 st. JLM divides the children into two classes based on their birthdates. Six months makes a huge difference in development during the preschool years and we have found this excels the learning process. Both classes offer exposure to alphabet/numbers, music, fine/gross motor skills, social development and biblical truths at different levels. This class takes a field trip each year to the Pumpkin Patch and may offer additional trips depending on class dynamics.
3 year old program – 3 days a week
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
The three-day 3 year old class is for the child that will be three by August 31 st. JLM divides the 3 year olds into two classes based on their birthdates. Six months makes a huge difference in development during the preschool years and we have found this excels the learning process. Both classes work on letter/number recognition, social development, fine/gross motor development, and Biblical truths at different levels. This class takes several field trips including the Pumpkin Patch, Yoke’s Fresh Market, and Puddleduck’s Herb Farm.
4 year old program – 3 days a week
Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
The three-day 4 year old class is for the child that will be four by August 31 st but has yet to show much of an interest in academics or does not enjoy sitting for extended periods of time. This class is similar to the Pre-K program with more attention given to developing fine/gross motor skills and lengthening attention spans. This class does more active learning as well as learning through play. The 4 year old class also gives you another year to decide on whether to place your child in Kindergarten or Pre-K the following year. This class takes several field trips during the year including the Pumpkin Patch, Richland Fire Station and Puddleduck’s Herb Farm.
Pre-K program -4-days a week
The four-day Pre-K class has been designed for the child that turns five in the summer or fall of 2011, can stay focused for 15 minutes or longer, has a developed pencil grip, has been working on writing his/her name, and has an interest in learning. This class will be more academic driven focusing on phonetics and math values. This class will also provide extended enrichment and exploration opportunities through science, geography, music, and literature units. Pre-K takes field trips to the Pumpkin Patch, Richland Fire Station, Richland Police Station, West Richland Post Office, Richland Library, and Puddleduck’s Herb Farm.
