Pastor Support:

Pastor Jim Grunow plays a very important role in the preschool. He attends our parent orientation night before school starts and invites the preschool families to feel welcome at Shepherd of the Valley. He also offers any services that he or the church may provide for our preschool families. Pastor Jim also individually greets preschool families as they arrive for school on the days when he has chapel time for the children. During the monthly chapel time we sing and pray together and learn about how much God loves each of us.
