Vision & Goal

To train children in the way they should go. (Proverbs 22:6). To ensure that every young child in our community is given the opportunity to know Christ's love and develop physically and spiritually though access to a loving, caring, welcoming and child-friendly environment. Our goal is to provide this environment and to make children feel comfortable in it. We want to ensure that the children of COGOP develop in every area. Luke 2:40 states: "And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him."
