About Our Program

Mission Statement

To teach the unconditional love of God and exemplify his son, Jesus, to our students and their families. We believe that all children deserve access to the Word of God and the community of Christ regardless of their abilities or limitations. We further aim to provide a workplace that encourages the spiritual growth and development of every staff member.


Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Sonshine School’s goal is to give your child a positive self-image by providing them Christ-like surrounding filled with acceptance, love, and respect.  We strive to provide an environment in which the children can grow to love Jesus, learn about themselves and their expanding world though exploration, experimentation, and good decision making.

The School believes in laying a good foundation spiritually, developmentally, physically, and academically, so that children can build upon this foundation for the rest of their lives.  The key to Christian education is Jesus Christ, “in whom are hidden all treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”  Colossians 2:3


Sonshine School Ministry is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of volunteers from the body of A & M Church of Christ.  This committee reports to and has been approved by the elders elected by the congregation at the A & M Church of Christ.  A school director has been selected to oversee the operation of the program.


Discipline is based on Christian love, individual needs, and development.  It will be consistent of positive ways by use of guidance, example and instruction.  Our behavior modification program is designed to help minister to each child and share in the guidance role with parents.  Corporal punishment is not considered an acceptable method of dealing with the behavior of young children.

Open Door Policy

You may visit your child during their Sonshine School day at any time.  Please check in at the Sonshine School’s Office to receive a name tag first.  For safety reasons, the only door that remains unlocked throughout the day is the  A & M Church of Christ’s Administrative Offices.  Please remember to park by that entrance in order not to cause alarm by trying to enter the building through a locked entrance.
