      Preschool Director
             Jan Derouen
CHBC Preschool believes that every child is a unique creation of God and it is our God-given responsibility to minister, nurture, love, educate and direct them in the instruction of our Lord. 
Christian education is very important for preschool students.  A child's spiritual foundation and world view is largely developed during these early years of life.  When children hear consistent messages about God at home, school, and church, it solidifies their understanding God's love for His children, His plan for salvation and their place in God's kingdom.  
Each day at CHBC Preschool, we start the day with a Bible Story and prayer time with the children.  We teach them about God's love and about giving of themselves to help others through service projects.
       Church Secretary
            Betty O'Dell
God brought me to Carriage Hills Baptist Church as secretary on February 25, 2008.  He has blessed me in many, many ways during my years here.  On January 17, 2017 God allowes me to become a member of this church.  CHBC is a loving and caring church that truly loves the Lord.  I am blessed to say that I share God's word with the most wonderful ladies in the State of Mississippi.  They are truly Senior Saints and I love them very much.  I get so excited when we start Sunday School every Sunday morning.  
Come visit CHBC and you will agree with me.  
Love in Christ,
Betty O'Dell
