Register for Preschool
It’s time to register for Mission Hill Preschool for the 2020-21 school year!

Please take a moment and register your child for our preschool ministry here.


Partnering with parents to help preschoolers love God passionately and love others intentionally.  We do that through safe, age appropriate environments where kids will experience worship, learning and play.



Younger Preschoolers

  • • Develop a growing trust of adults as their needs are met consistently
  • • Feel loved by adults at church
  • • Say “Thank you” to God
  • • Listen to Bible stories read by adults

Middle Preschoolers

Jesus was the master at using creative objects—like coins, fish, and lilies—to connect eternal truths to everyday life.  Preschoolers experience the same powerful connections between Scripture and everyday life by engaging all five of their senses. The Bible comes alive!

Older Preschoolers

We will study God’s unfolding story from creation to Revelation through the course of more than 100 weekly studies. In the process, they’ll also learn that God’s story continues to unfold and they have a place in it just as surely as the characters they learn about in the Bible.

Melody Strickland is a native of Tampa, where she was born as the oldest of three children.  Melody and her family actively attended and served in a local Baptist church, where at the age of 7 she accepted Christ as her Savior and was baptized.  When she was 12 years old, Melody’s family moved to Mission Hill Church.  Melody believes that, although many people have invested in her life and her Christian walk, her parents were and still are her greatest role models.  Melody is a graduate of USF with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  She taught Kindergarten in the public school system before moving into our WEE World Ministry, where she taught 4 years olds before becoming the school’s curriculum specialist.  Melody has served in many areas of our church including the Preschool, Children, and Youth ministries, Awanas, and Vacation Bible School.  Currently Melody is serving Mission Hill Church as the Director of Preschool Ministries and also our Event Coordinator.  Melody’s passion is for our littlest ones to be excited to come to church and learn about Jesus and for their parents to know that their children are safe and loved.

Melody and Doug have been married for 24 years – after meeting right here at Mission Hill Church!  They have been blessed with two wonderful children, Gracie, a junior at FSU, and Lex, an 8th grader, both of whom accepted Jesus and were baptized at Mission Hill Church.
