Wonder Way Preschool Ministry
Sundays at 10:00 am and 11:30 am
Weekly stories, preschool resources, and messages from our staff can be found on our Facebook page.
Moms and Dads are the most important people in a child’s world. As a church, we want to support you in your efforts to raise children who know and love God in such a way that He guides the course of their future. The family and the church are two separate forces that are more powerful and effective when they work together. So whether yours is a traditional, blended or single-parent family; our desire is to make Sunday morning the best hour of their week and then to give you tools to keep the conversation and teaching going all week long.
Your first visit
Here's what to expect when visiting Wonder Way for the first time:
First, go to the Preschool Lobby located to the left of the worship center. There you will find a volunteer to help you check in. Once you are checked in a volunteer will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
How check-in works
Before Service: Go to the Preschool Lobby, located to the left of the worship center. A volunteer will help you check in your child into their age-appropriate group. Your child will be given a name tag and you will be given a guardian tag. These tags have matching ID codes and are exclusive to your family and visit. You will need the guardian tag to pick up your child.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to the Preschool Lobby and show your tag to the volunteer in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s name will appear at the bottom of the main service screen. We ask that you exit the worship area immediately and go to the Preschool Lobby. A staff member or volunteer will direct you to your child.
Our preschool-age ministry utilizes the rethink Group's First Look curriculum specifically designed to teach Preschool children three basic truths:
- God made me
- God loves me
- Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
We believe that children of any age can engage in the worship experience! We strive to use Biblical, yet creative and engaging methods to teach children about a God who loves them deeply. For more information on our curriculum visit http://www.myfirstlook.org.

Lisa Rhoney's mission is to lead a team of volunteers to instill in Real Life’s preschoolers that God loves them, God made them and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
MOPS at Real Life Church
What is MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together in their own neighborhoods and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time. If you are pregnant with your first child or you are in the trenches of toddlerhood. We are here to support you!
Real Life Church is excited to be hosting a MOPS group for mothers in the community. We provide a welcoming environment for mothers to meet, connect with, and encourage one another through this journey of motherhood through the preschool years. Our mentors are on hand at most meetings to provide additional encouragement, advice, and prayer for anyone who seeks the wisdom of someone who has already navigated through their journey as a MOP. In our open, accepting community of MOPS, we will learn from great mentors and each other, be equipped with excellent tools for implementing what we learn at home and continue to shape our own personal mothering style. We have exciting speakers, creative solutions, and activities planned for this year, so check us out! Invite a friend!
MOPS is scheduled to meet on the first and third Monday each month from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.
Check out our Facebook group for updates! Regular meetings will be back in September.
