Developing a Ministry Partnership with Your Local School
August 3 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 amFree
Have you ever wondered how your church can reach your neighborhood? Have you ever wanted a way to engage every member of your congregation to be the church that God has called us to be?
Every community challenge is present in our local schools – poverty, hunger, homelessness – and a school partnership gives churches an opportunity to show God’s love to students, families, and school staff in a very real way. By coming alongside your local public school to address these challenges together, you can positively impact the trajectory of children’s lives for generations to come.
In partnership with Loving Houston, St. James Lutheran Church is hosting an information session to cast vision for churches partnering with local schools. This first workshop will provide the big-picture vision for church-school partnerships, the need for church partners in our schools, and clarity on the separation of church and state.
On August 29, our second workshop will give your church-school partnership ministry team an opportunity to walk step-by-step through the mechanics of starting a partnership. You will learn about the many practical ways a church can serve in a school, and you will leave with everything you need to start your partnership.
If every school across Greater Houston had a committed church partner, what a difference that would make in the lives of our children. It will cost you nothing to learn, and our children have everything to gain. Come see how your church can partner with local schools!
