Children's Outreach Ministries

We love kids at Mechanic Grove. Our Children's Outreach Ministries are a way for us to share the love we have for children with our wider community here in the Southern End. We know how hard it can be as a parent to find quality care for your child while you work. We know how much parents want to make sure their kids have a quality education experience in early childhood. That's why COM exists.

Our Primary Program opened in 2016. Along with educating children in important academic skills like reading, writing, and math we want to help instill Christian values in such a way that the children become productive members of society, striving to make the world a better and more peaceful place.

Wee Friends Preschool was started in the spring of 1975 with a three month trial. The vision of Pastor Earl K. Ziegler, it was promoted by Mechanic Grove Church of the Brethren member Marlene Eckman, who became the school's first lead teacher. The school currently includes five classes for 4 to 5 year olds, four classes of 3 and 4 year olds and three classes for 2 to 3 year olds.
