About Us

Orenco Christian Preschool is a ministry of Orenco Church.  As a Christian faith-based preschool, we dedicate ourselves to enriching your family's life by providing a childcare center that nurtures young children's development within a purposeful learning environment.

Orenco Church has a rich history and has been a cornerstone in the Orenco Community since 1909.  Our commitment is to follow Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, founded on the scriptural truth.  We desire to serve Jesus and the community with joy and gratitude because of all God has done for us.  We invite you to visit our website at ORENCOCHURCH.ORG/HOME for more details.

"I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever." Psalm 86:12
