Smoke Rise Baptist Weekday School is a vital part of the ministry of Smoke Rise Baptist Church. For almost 50 years, Smoke Rise Baptist Weekday School has met the needs of children and families through caring teachers, excellent facilities, and a curriculum that stimulates young minds to explore, discover, worship, and play.
Smoke Rise Baptist Weekday School cares deeply for each and every child. Our ministry is to welcome little children, as Jesus did and to care for them and their families personally, nurturing them in a safe, loving, and creative environment. Through play and activity-centered curriculum, we seek to teach them about their own capabilities, about Christian faith, and the skills necessary for success in elementary school and beyond.
