For the past 17 years, owner LaShaun D J McCroy of Psalms 127:3 Magnet CC Ministry has worked endlessly to provide a compassionate, positive safe haven for children of all ages, races, and religion. Psalms 127:3 is a 24-hour child care ministry that is open Sunday through Saturday. It provides healthy meals and daily teaching to children from newborns to school age. The business name comes from the Bible verse Psalms 127:3 which states “Behold children are a Heritage from the Lord. The fruit of the womb is His reward.”
McCroy is passionate about providing children with an opportunity to hear and see God’s Word ministered through love and daily teaching. She also ensures that each age group even the nursery age, are provided with an educational curriculum. Nursery age children learn letters, shapes, colors and sign language. Ages 3 and up are taught science, social studies, and Spanish. Children that go through the program are entering kindergarten fully prepared for success. Schools are reporting that the children are achieving above grade level. Psalms 127:3 also provides before and after school programs for school-age children that start as early as 5:30 a.m. and as late as 7:00 p.m.
It is her future goal to provide schooling for all ages and open numerous locations throughout the city. Whether she is ministering to children or their parents, McCroy believes it is important for every individual to know that their life has a purpose and God’s Agape (unconditional Love) is available to all.
