Mother's Day Out

Mother's Day Out (MDO) is a ministry of First Evangelical Church. Our goal is to provide a loving and safe environment for children where they are not only taught basic educational and developmental concepts, but also exposed to the Truth of God's Word and His LOVE for them!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Also, if you need to get additional children on the waiting list, please email us today!
