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, Union Baptist Association 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 July 20, our second workshop in the series will give your church-school partnership ministry team an opportunity to work through the mechanics of starting a partnership with guidance from experienced leaders and Loving Houston staff.)
If every school in 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 schools across Greater Houston!
