Messiah Lighthouse Child & Family Development Center

The Lighthouse Child & Family Development Center (LCFDC) programs are Christian faith-based family development centers that partner with local congregations to assist the Springfield-area children and their families.

Messiah Lighthouse Child and Family Development Center, a ministry of Messiah Lutheran Church, compliments the mission of the LCFDC by providing childcare for 30 children and their families. Messiah Lighthouse opened October 1, 2009. We not only provide quality childcare, but also family support, accountability, and parental education. Our MLCFDC staff feels family support is so important, because parents are a child’s “first and forever teacher”.

MLCFDC is licensed and accredited by the State of Missouri for the care of children ages 6 weeks through 5 years. It has also been awarded the designation as a Gold Star Safe Child and Eat Smart Facility through the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.
