Equipping Children~Transforming Families: An Early Childhood Education Project at St. Luke’s Gethsemane

“Don’t you see that children are God’s best gift?” Psalm 127:3

The psalmist is right. He goes on to say that our children are like “the arrows of the warrior…” I believe that we are the bows to launch the children of our community into tomorrow, where the impact they can make on the world is immeasurable. I also believe that working with children is our best approach to open doors into the families around
St. Luke’s Gethsemane mission so that we might make a difference in their lives as well.

That is why we will open a preschool to provide quality full-day education for three- and four-year-old children in our parish in southwest Houston.

The statistics about the impact of early childhood education are clear and undeniable. It is essential for children’s success. The school will also be the platform for equipping families in parenting education, financial and English language literacy and advocating for and supporting their children as they move into HISD and charter schools.

I hope you will join us in this effort through your prayers, your time and your financial support.
