Loving Arms Children’s Center and their partnership with Messiah Lutheran Church has been a second home to my sons for the past 5 years. I love that as they are developing and being prepared for school they are more importantly learning about Jesus’ love for them. His teachings and daily life lessons are incorporated into their days at LACC by dedicated staff and leadership. I can’t say enough how pleased we have been with our LACC experience and how thankful we are that we found this center.
