Our Preschool Ministry is a ministry of the Church.  As with all church ministries, the Preschool Ministry needs to reflect the Mission, Vision, Core Value and Goals of the Church.



Mission Statement:

To love God, love people, and make disciples of Jesus Christ through its ministries to and with our students and their families.


Vision Statement:

To the glory of God, we are called to share the love of God, teach the ways of Jesus, and build a foundation of the Christian faith while preparing children for Kindergarten.


Core Value:

Our core value is love.  We love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves.  This value is commanded by Jesus.  We seek to live out our core value of love through these practices:

  • Embrace all students and their families
  • Passionate teaching in a loving, learning environment
  • Encourage sharing and service
  • Intentional Faith Development
  • Celebrate God’s presence in our everyday life



  1. Spiritual Development through daily prayer, worship/devotion of God and weekly Bible stories.
  2. Readiness for school academically and socially.
  3. Instill in children a love of learning.
  4. Develop in children compassion for others.
