Many churches have already made the leap and partnered with schools over many years and even decades. Erie churches are no exception. Reference the spread sheet below to see what is happening in the Erie Area near you! Please shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org if your church might be interested in partnering with a school. There are opportunities for small and larger congregations alike.
“We get to be the hands and feet of Jesus and share His love in our local community with the students, teachers and staff of our partner schools–many of whom are feeling unseen, alone, or discouraged. Whether it is reading with a group of students, helping one with math facts, volunteering in a classroom, sending an encouraging note to staff, or praying for a school – every act of love can make difference. We are truly the Church when we move out beyond our own walls to bring Jesus to those in our own communities” Kensington Church, Michigan”
“At the end of the day, we believe that churches should serve and support public schools, because despite their best efforts, the people educating our nation’s children cannot do it alone. And more than anything—kids matter.” Southlake Church, OR
