Chapel in March

"A friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17

This month in chapel, the Bible stories are about the miracles of Jesus. We always focus on God's unconditional love for all of us. We appreciate our chapel leaders: Pastor Tim, Mr. John, Mr. Andrew and Ms Suzanne. Of course, Sam, our puppet friend makes an appearance each week. The children love seeing Katherine, our puppeteer!

You are welcome to come to chapel any time. It's held Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:45 - 10:00 am.

Service in February
Our Toothbrush challenge took place in February. Thanks for having your children sign our toothbrush posters! We will donate toothbrushes to the Helen Wright Women's Center.

Also in February, our older children visited Springmoor and made valentines with them. Everyone enjoyed the time together!

The mission of GSLP is to provide a Christ-centered early childhood preschool through faith-based education and service in a nurturing inclusive environment. 
The Educational Philosophy of Good Shepherd Lutheran Preschool
The focus of the preschool is to meet children’s needs and stimulate learning in these developmental areas:   *Physical    *Emotional/ Social    *Spiritual    *Cognitive        *Music/Art
To nurture these areas the Preschool’s objectives are to: 
  • Integrate Christian faith formation throughout the curriculum.               
  • Develop a cooperative/supportive relationship between the child, the family and the preschool.
  • Provide developmentally appropriate activities.               
  • Teach children about their relationship with God and all people in the world.               
  • Provide tools for assessment of students’ progress.

Our teachers relate education to the child’s understanding about God and Christian life so that the spiritual and developmental aspects of the curriculum become a foundation for a lifelong faith.
