Co-Op

Salt + Light Co-Op

Matthew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Salt + Light Co-op was birthed out of a desire to create a space to teach children to live confident and bold for Christ. We believe the early years are for building a foundation of faith that will help them to be the salt and light of the world, not hidden, but shining God’s love and peace within the world.
