Bible Verse this Month
"We should do good to everyone!" Galatians 6:10
God Cares for all of Us!
Happy New Year everyone! We hope you all had a great Christmas and we're looking forward to starting off a new year with you!

January is a month full of bible stories! We'll learn about the Lost Sheep, Baby Moses, and lions in the den with Daniel! As we learn about these parables, we'll relate them to our lives by letting the preschoolers know that each one is important to us, to the class, and to God. They are learning so much about who they are!


  • Preschool Registration starts January 13th for the 2020-2021 school year, tell a friend! We'll have spots available in all classes.
  • Look for Kindergarten registration to begin in East Valley schools in January or February.
  • Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!
