FOR OUR SCHOOLS
As a church, we have felt God's call to reach out to our community through school partnerships. The public schools are the heartbeat of our community, and by serving them, we are sharing God's love in real and tangible ways.
We started our school partnership initiative with just one school, Tanner's Creek Elementary in Norfolk, in 2016. We have learned so much through this partnership that we felt God's call to expand this initiative to 20 schools by the year 2022! These partnerships will look different at every school, but the heart of each partnership is a true and meaningful relationship with the schools and the communities surrounding them. Here are just some of the ways you can get involved with a school in your community:
- Mentoring students
- Classroom adoption & support
- Teacher appreciation events
- Quarterly assemblies or family engagement nights
- Facilities help and clean up through Serve the City
- Career presentations to students or classrooms
- Prayer or administrative support
