Apostles Lutheran Church Preschool
Are you ready for another “Rootin Tootin” good time? The preschool will be holding it’s annual chicken BBQ on October 14 following the 2nd service. A limited number of meals will be available for purchase after the first service but we hope you come and stay for the fun. The kiddos will be sporting cowboy hats and come riding in on their ponies to get the fun started. Please see Beckie or JD Ellis to purchase your tickets. The proceeds from the event help to update and refurbish the playground, purchase teaching materials, and pay for required staff training.
Our playground is expanding! The new fencing has been installed. Thank you to everyone who helped to make that possible. The weather is cooling down, so a work-day will be planned soon to clean up the playground. It took quite a beating during the monsoons. Ripped awnings, broken equipment and toys need to be replaced and weeds pulled.
Through your prayers, donations and participation in fundraising events, Apostles Preschool is truly blessed to be a blessing to the community and the family we have in our care. It is important to teach our children the word of God, plant the tiny seed, so they will grow up knowing who Jesus is. The ABC’s and 123’s are of course another aspect to the learning, along with confidence and social and emotional skills needed to build up the child so they feel encouraged and ready for kindergarten and all the BIG world things they will be experiencing.
Some of our children do not get to hear of Jesus in their home. Here at Apostles Preschool, we talk freely about God, blessings and prayer throughout the day in conversation, lesson work ad chapel, so we know that when the children leave here, they do so with a strong knowledge of God that will stay with them in their hearts.
Glendale Community College has recognized us as a quality school and has asked to send students here for their Early Childhood Education internship. It is such a pleasure to have our hard work recognized in this way and give us the opportunity to help train up new teachers.
The Lunch–to–Go Program will begin on November 18. Meals will be boxed to go as you come through the line so food is fresh and hot, ready to eat in the comfort of your own home. The cost is $7.00 per meal and available following each of our three services. Why not take an already prepared meal home after church so you can kick off your shoes and relax with family and no dishes to wash!! The monies earned will be held in reserve to cover summer payroll during the months when enrollment is in transition from children leaving to go to kindergarten and new children registering for the coming school year.
We still have openings for the current school year, so if you have any family, friends, neighbors who have a child who is at least 3 years old (and potty trained), tell them about Apostles Preschool, invite them to give us a call to learn more about our program and schedule a tour of the school.
Always in His service,
Beckie Ellis, Apostles Preschool Director

A BIG thank you to our church family from the preschool for the many blessings you have all provided us. What a blessing God is providing to be a mission and ministry of our church. Getting ready for our upcoming assessment has been a long road to travel in a short period of time. With all your prayers, helping hands, and donations, you have made this journey much easier. We see God’s hand in all that is done and for that I praise and thank you daily.
Much love and appreciation
