Nurturing School Partnerships
Are you looking for ways to reach out to your community to love your neighbors and bring good news to the poor? Are you already in partnership with a local school and are looking to expand that ministry? Do you care about helping our children thrive regardless of their zip code or family background?
Connecting with your local public school is a great way to help our communities thrive and ensure all children have what they need to flourish. Through a combination of presentation and group conversation, this workshop will bring together congregations who already have a partnership with a local school and congregations who want to develop a partnership. We will discuss best practices for churches to support their local schools including what's working in our locations, pitfalls to avoid, and ideas we have for further ministry. We will focus on both immediate direct service to schools and longer-term systemic change for public education.
