Faith Nursery School provides a Christ-centered pre-school for 2½-year-olds through 5-year-olds.  Three morning classes are offered; a class for 2½-year-olds that meets on Mondays and Wednesdays; a class for 3-year-olds that meets on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and a Pre-K class that meets Monday through Friday.  An optional fourth day is offered for the 3-year-olds on Wednesday.

The school was founded in 1989 as an outreach ministry of Faith Lutheran Church.  The children regularly share in Bible stories, grace, Christian music with the church’s Director of Music, and visits with the Pastors.  The children participate in the church’s outreach ministries, including the CROP Walk, the Fall Food Drive, the Christmas Sharing Tree, and the Easter Crosswalk.

Registration has begun for the 2012-2013 school year.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the church office at
