Our rela­tion­ship with chil­dren is estab­lished by Christ- “Who­ev­er wel­comes one of these chil­dren in My name wel­comes Me…”  (Mark 9:37)

The ear­ly child­hood program’s pri­ma­ry pur­pose is to extend the Gospel to young chil­dren.  As such, the Preschool is an inte­gral part of the Mt. Olive Luther­an Church congregation’s mis­sion and total min­istry pro­gram.

Par­ents are rec­og­nized as children’s pri­ma­ry teach­ers and are sup­port­ed by Mother, father, son and daughter with a church in the background

the ear­ly child­hood pro­gram in their nur­tur­ing role.  Fam­i­lies are min­is­tered to in the name of Jesus and brought into con­tact with His sav­ing Word.

The mis­sion of the ear­ly child­hood pro­gram, and the Preschool, along with all the oth­er con­gre­ga­tion­al min­istries, is the Great Com­mis­sion; to teach the Gospel to all.  Con­gre­ga­tion and pro­gram lead­ers part­ner with all Mt. Olive Church’s mem­bers to embrace the ear­ly child­hood pro­gram fam­i­lies in our cir­cle of care, liv­ing and speak­ing the sav­ing love of Jesus, so that by the pow­er of the Holy Spir­it the lives of chil­dren and their fam­i­lies are trans­formed.
