Chapel in February

 "Hear the word of God and obey it."    Luke 11:28

This month in chapel, the children will learn about Jesus and the children, Zacchaeus, Mary and Martha, and how Jesus calmed the storm. We always focus on God's unconditional love for all of us. We appreciate our chapel leaders: Pastor Tim, Ms Barb, Mr. Andrew and Ms Suzanne.

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

Service in January
The children of GSLP enjoy giving back to the community around them. Even the youngest can participate! We made menu covers for the church event called Memory Café and decorated placemats for Meals on Wheels.
The 4 and 5-year-olds enjoyed time with seniors from Springmoor. They read some winter themed books, made a snowman craft and had a great time in music and movement.

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.
