"As a Christ-centered educational ministry of messiah Lutheran Church, Messiah Preschool in partnership with families provides the building blocks for the spiritual, physical, mental and social growth of its students. We encourage the children to share their God-given gifts in service as witnesses to their love for Christ. This ministry nurtures the congregation and the community through the grace of Jesus our Savior in a joyous and loving environment as it fulfills our Lord's imperative: "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these" (Mark 10:14).
