About Us

The Learning Center is an outreach ministry at Lake Superior Christian Church. The goal to provide an excellent preschool and childcare facility in Marquette came about during a brainstorming session in 2015 as LSCC approached total debt freedom. We began the pursuit in earnest in 2018. LSCC supports The Learning Center as we reach out to families in Marquette to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
