This program offers young children an opportunity to interact with their peers so that they can begin to learn about sharing and caring for others. They learn about the world around them through play.

Our purpose is to provide a Christian environment that is safe and conducive to good health where children work and play together. Our aim is to offer opportunities for the children to grow intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually. We hope to achieve these goals by encouraging an enthusiasm for learning through:

  • sharing a daily time of devotion through Bible stories and chapel experiences
  • giving each child an awareness of God's love for him/her
  • "hands on" exploring
  • activities which develop large and small muscle coordination and motor skill
  • participating in group experiences, sharing and playing together

Our Parents Day Out program is for infants; six (6) weeks through two (2) years of age.

We offer 2, 3, and 5-day classes. You may choose a Half Day; which is 8:45 am - noon, or a Full Day which is 8:45 am - 2:45 pm. Early Care begins at 7:30 am and Extended Care until 5:00 pm.

Helping you and your family through difficult times by providing holistic care and an ear to listen.

Support through Hardships

We offer support in daily living and at times of need or crisis. We always want to hear from members when life changes occur. We hope that we can walk with you through the difficult task of making sense of life’s challenges and finding a way forward. You are not alone.

Hospital Visits

When you or a loved one are at your most vulnerable, we want to be a place where you can turn for support. If you know about a procedure beforehand, let us know so we can care for you.

Spiritual Guidance

When you need to help on your spiritual journey or find yourself in a spiritual rut, we're here for you. Growing as a disciple of Christ involves questioning. We welcome the skeptics, the outcasts, and the excluded, and hope to help you find your home here.

Referrals

While we desire to be there for you during all parts of your life, sometimes other professional services might be able to better meet your needs. When this is the case, we strive to connect you with the appropriate services. Let us know what type of help you need, and we will point you in the right direction.

The Preschool program offers children readiness opportunities to prepare them for kindergarten. We focus on language development, listening-skills, large and small motor development as well as number, color and alphabet recognition. The rooms offer several different learning centers and throughout the year they are exposed to numerous units of study which challenge their creative and academic development. In addition to classroom activities, the children go to Music class and Motor Movement class. We have a unique outdoor playground that offers a variety of play equipment.

The children begin each day in chapel. We sing songs, hear stories about Jesus and learn the importance of prayer in our lives. Our intention is to welcome young children to God's family during this short worship service.

Our program is a nurturing introduction to "school" for young children. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve your family in taking care of your child.

Ages: 3 - 5 years.

For 3 year old Preschool, you may choose from a 2 day(T/H), 3 day(M/W/F) or 5 day class.

True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are, it requires us to be who we are. To believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. 

 

Using Brené Brown's book, we will redefine what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization rife with perfectionism and pleasing.  We'll also share and explore where we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection hiding in ideological bunkers or fit in rather than showing up as our true selves and braving the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism.

*Starts at 6 pm on Tuesdays
