Spiritual Learning

Christ Lutheran PreSchool provides a non-denominational Christian curriculum component to our early childhood learning. Through that component, students have opportunities for spiritual learning. Examples of that component include:

  • Godly Play: Each month, students hear a favorite Bible story, which is introduced with figures and manipulatives that they can use to help tell the story. (For example: The story of Noah and the Ark includes a child-friendly boat with numerous pairs of animals.)
  • Spiritual Enrichment/Bible Time: During the month, Pastor Sue visits each classroom to reinforce the message from that month’s Godly Play story.
  • Family Chapel: Each month, families and care givers are invited to join their preschooler for Chapel Time, which begins at 10:40 and runs until dismissal time. Children sing songs, recognize birthdays, and celebrate their day.


In response to COVID-19 and based on recommendations from healthcare and policy experts, Christ Lutheran joins with local schools in closing effective Monday, March 16. We expect to remain closed until at least April 30, based on state-wide mandates. As the situation regarding COVID-19 unfolds, we will follow the most current recommendations in an effort to safeguard the health of not only our students, families and staff but also the wider community. Decisions about future programming will be communicated as they become available. Take care and be healthy.
