Mission & Philosophy

Mission and Ministry

Messiah Lutheran Preschool was founded on the love of God in Jesus Christ and seeks to demonstrate that redeeming love through the instruction of and the care for its students.  To that end, Messiah Lutheran Preschool will love unconditionally, serve and care for each child enrolled in Messiah Lutheran Preschool.

 

Philosophy

Messiah Lutheran Preschool teaches God’s Word reflecting a Lutheran understanding of God’s Law and Gospel as written in the Scriptures.  Messiah Lutheran Preschool is committed to providing a caring, nurturing, and loving environment addressing the spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and emotional development of each child in the program.  Students attend weekly chapel with the Pastor and appropriate Bible stories and activities are part of each day’s program.  All academic lessons reflect the love of God that Jesus is God’s Son, each child’s Savior and Friend.  God’s forgiveness for each child’s sin is basic in their relationship with God, one another, their teachers, parents and siblings.

Since Jesus commissioned His followers to TEACH WHATEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU (Matthew 28:20), it is Messiah Lutheran Preschool’s conviction to carry out this ministry and that it will please God as it helps children to GROW IN WISDOM AND STATURE, AND IN FAVOR WITH GOD AND MAN (Luke 2: 52).
