At Before & After school care we provide direction, trust, friendship, team work, and kind and understanding hearts. We look forward to each morning and afternoon with your children, with their funny stories, their fun and witty personalities, and their happy demeanor.
   One of the most important things for us in child care is building trust, keeping the children safe and happy, and building a strong relationship with Christ. I love how we end each morning and begin our afternoons with devotion and prayer.
   During the school day, while the older children are in school, preschools will receive structured care from members of our Preschool team (in Ark 3 or 4) when they are not in their Preschool classroom (Ark 1 or 2).
   We look forward to welcoming and serving your family, and building those strong Christ centered relationships with you and your child. Should you every need anything or have any questions, please send me an email. I am happy to help in anyway I can.

The Kindness of a Child

RAinOn a rainy summer morning, a young student came to school with his mom to meet his tutor. I met them at the door as they waited for the tutor to arrive.


Seeing God in the Everyday Moments

would like to share about a time Messiah moment that I experienced recently. It didn’t happen at Messiah, and it may not seem like a big deal, but God showed up — and that is a pretty big deal!


ABCs of the Bible

This year the theme for our second grade chapel was ABC’s in the Bible. As a whole group, the students brainstormed ideas for each letter of the alphabet. I wasn’t expecting all the excitement that followed.
