BACK CREEK PRESCHOOL
For over 25 years, Back Creek Preschool has been dedicated to providing activities for children in our community which promote mental, spiritual, physical and emotional growth in a loving and caring environment. The teachers are people who are qualified by their experience, training, their desire to help children grow, and their own Christian character. Children are accepted into the preschool as space allows without regard to race, religion, or sex.
Promoting the discovery of Jesus through sports. Our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading Program is designed to give girls and boys, ages K-8th grade, the opportunity to develop their skills, learn the importance of team work, and more about Jesus.
Our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading season begins with sign-ups in November of each year. We also offer Saturday Summer Camps each July to help build skills sets and boost confidence in players.
For over 50 years, Scouting has been a part of Back Creek Church. Traditional values are at the core of both Cub Pack 49 and Troop 49. Both groups have active outdoor programs that include monthly camping trips, participate in the annual Scouting for Food that benefits local food banks, and do work with many service projects in our community.
