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 backgroundthe 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.
