Creation Kids Preschool

Creation Kids Preschool provides a quality, Christian-based preschool program for children in our congregation and community. Our goals are to nurture the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical development of each child. Our mission is to help children grow in their faith and love of God. CKP opened their doors in 1999 and has since graduated over 800 children. Many of St. John’s most active youth are graduates from the program. We invite you and your child to be a part of a very special program and ministry at St. John’s Lutheran Church!
