With three months before the next back-to-school, plan now to support your local scholars.
Increasing numbers of churches are considering how they can best engage their local schools. The Lewis Center for Church Leadership offers a resource that helps a congregation in its efforts to support teachers and students in their neighborhood.
Through videos, presentations, and supplemental materials, Engaging Local Schools guides your congregation in considering questions that are critical to the success of a school-focused service initiative:
- How can your church express more fully a heart for the needs of children and schools?
- How can you discern a vision for a school partnership that responds to the needs present in your context and utilizes the unique gifts your church has to offer?
- What are models and best practices for ministries that support students and teachers?
Engaging Local Schools is ecumenical and designed for both self study and for use with groups in your church.
