In 1989, the Education/Fellowship addition was dedicated and the Messiah Christian Preschool (MCP) began operation with founding Director Nancy Zick. Messiah Christian Preschool (MCP) is working to continue to be a viable offering to the community in the face of area public schools adding 4K programs of their own. In response to the need and to help sustain the preschool ministry, MCP added a 2 1/2 year old class in the 2007-08 school year and expanded the 3 year old classes to offer a 3-day option and continued to offer services in these age groups in each of the following two school years. There continues to be a need for at least one 4 year old class. Lynnette Vacala, hired as the Assistant Director in 2008-09, was hired to fill the Director position for the 2009-10 school year.
